Months after promising a native iOS app for its Google Play Music service, Google finally delivered the goods. The free app is available in the iTunes App Store as of Friday and supports both local music playback as well as cloud streaming of tunes. Google allows up to 20,000 music tracks in the cloud and offers a $9.99 monthly music subscription service called All Access, which is also supported in the new app. So too is the ability to Chromecast music wirelessly to a TV. I doubt many long-time users of iTunes will make the switch, but for someone who is living a Google-centric life on an iPad Air, the new app is music to my ears.

  1. I can’t find it in the app store on my phone.

    1. It may take time to appear in the app store, but if you use the link in the post, it should get you there.

  2. This is not an official Google app. Why is every site that is reporting on it saying it is? The developer name is MinhMobileDev. Therefore I will not be using it.

    1. Tim, Google launched the app. It’s official, per the Google Play folks: https://plus.google.com/+GooglePlay/posts/i2K8Yszv7sJ

      And I received the information about the launch via email through one of my Google PR contacts.
