Google Announces ‘All Access’ Music Service at Google I/O

It’s official.

As widely rumored in recent months, Google has confirmed the forthcoming launch of its own music streaming service.

The service will go head-to-head with such established competitors at Spotify, Pandora, and Rdio.

Called “All Access,” the service enables users to hear new and favorite music on demand.

“The Silicon Valley giant said All Access, a part of its Google Music service, will allow users to combine their music libraries with the millions of songs that Google has obtained rights to,” explains Salvador Rodriguez of the LA Times.

Google said All Access will go live for U.S. users today.

Following a 30-day free trial, the service will cost $9.99 a month. It will only cost $7.99 a month for people who sign up for a subscription by June 30, 2013.
