Google may be renaming Play Music All Access

Google Play Music

Google Play Music All Access, Google’s subscription based music service, doesn’t have a great name. It’s a pretty fantastic service (when it isn’t freezing) with a big selection of music, but the name is simply too long and cumbersome to say in conversation. But according to some quickly removed text on a Google page, the service may be renamed soon.

It would be exciting if the new name wasn’t “Google Play unlimited music subscription.” No, I’d say that’s quite a bit worse. It’s still too long, but sounds even worse. Nonetheless, this change might be coming soon. This snippet of text was found in the page for the Nexus 7 promotion offering 3 months of All Access:

A Google Play unlimited music subscription (previously known as Google Play Music All Access) entitles subscribers to listen to unlimited music from the song titles available within Google Play on a monthly basis.

This text has been removed as of writing this article. But it did appearĀ on an official Google page, so it seems likely that this is true. Or it could have been a mistake on Google’s part. Either way, the name isn’t getting better anytime soon. What would you call Google Play Music All Access? Make it short and sweet, and leave your suggestion in the comments! Google won’t read them!

    I’d go with something like Google Play Recess (recess kind of goes along with play), Google Play Unlimited (though I guess it’s only music that’s unlimited), or even Google Play Radio

    Regardless of what they name it, I think I’ll be dropping it soon. I’ve had issues finding new albums on there, the “create a station” feature is really bad…I wish it were half as good as Pandora’s, and I can’t consistently get it to work. I’ll be showing someone how cool it is, but oh, the song won’t play. Oh, it will play for 1 second, skip, play for 1 second, and then skip again. Oh, it started working…nope, skipped to the next song.

    Not to mention, Amazon’s service is pretty good…and there’s a lot more value in Prime than just that.

      Really? I’ve never had a single problem with it. The iOS app has been meh but is getting better but as far as playing content, never.

      It’s not their fault your internet sucks. I’ve never seen that unless I had terrible coverage.

        I have VZW LTE on my HTC One M7 and FiOS 75/35 (with three access points) at home.

        It’s not my connection. Don’t get me wrong, it will sometimes work brilliantly for many days in a row. And sometimes it will work great on one album, but when I try to play a different one it will struggle, sometimes just spin and spin until I give up and try something else.

    What’s up with ‘Music’ or ‘Music by Google’ .

    What about; Music by Google, Comming in your ears 24/7.

    It think they should rename it to “Google Music Partial Access”.
