Good news for iOS consumers who love music. Google’s new Play Music All Access service is coming to the iOS platform very soon. At the D11 conference, Sundar Pichai, the senior vice president for Android, Chrome and Google Apps said that this new service will be available on the iOS platform in a few weeks.
It seems that Google will continue offering its Music All Access services on other mobile platforms like iOS, even though Apple is still not that much into developing apps or offering its services for Google’s Android platform. At the event, Sundar Pichai made this announcement when he was asked about how Google approached cross-platform apps on iOS and other platforms.
“In Google’s fundamental DNA is that we wanted to be universally accessible, and I think that philosophy carries through to today. A couple of weeks from now, we’re going to launch Google Music All Access, the teams are working like crazy to make it available on iOS. In a few weeks, we’ll launch Google Play Music All Access for iOS,” he said.
Hence it is clear that the team at Google is working very hard to get this service to the iOS platform, so the company will soon start offering a new service on a mobile platform that actually happens to be its greatest rival. However, it is not about rivalry here. Google wants to ensure that a majority of smartphone consumers get the best services possible, even if they are not using Google’s own mobile platform.
Google All Access Music service is already available for Android smartphone users, the service was launched on May 15th at the Google I/O conference. The service offers on-demand streaming and radio, and currently it is only available in the United States for a price of $9.99 per month and a 30-day free trial.
