Let the music play: Google Music app for iOS reportedly coming in October

Google will launch a version of its Google Music app for iOS later this month, sources tell Engadget. On Thursday, the gadget blog reported the news, saying the software is getting tested internally at Google(s goog). The app is expected to support Google Play Music All Access, a radio-like experience that costs $9.99 per month.

I’m not surprised to hear this possibility as Google tends to extend its services to other platforms — particularly Apple’s(s aapl) iOS — in order to broaden its audience. This in turn provides Google with more potential users of its services and therefore, more user data for the company.
