Google Play Music officially launches on iOS, butlacks store


We've been waiting about 6 months since Google
first said that Google Play Music would be coming to
iOS (at which point they claimed it would only be
"weeks" until we saw the app.) We've waited
through rumors and reports of internal testing, but
the app has finally arrived. Google Play Music is
officially in the iOS App Store.
The app is quite fully featured as well. It allows you
to access all of your own music that you may have
purchased or uploaded to Google's cloud. And, the
app allows you to use your All Access pass to
stream any of the other 20 million tracks in
Google's database. You can stream if you want, or
save music to your iPhone for offline playback.
Music can be played back at 320kbps and can be
played back through any AirPlay or Bluetooth
devices. There is also the recommended music lists
(both algorithmically generated, and curated by
humans), and the Radio feature which works just
like it would with Spotify, Pandora, or iTunes Radio,
although Google lets you add and remove tracks
from the radio playlist, so you have a bit more
Google Play Music for iOS doesn't have everything
though. As you would expect, the restrictions that
Apple has placed on apps means that there is no
way to purchase new music, or even start an All
Access subscription through the Play Music app,
but if you buy something on the web, it will sync to
your iPhone. There are also a few smaller missing
features like the "I feel lucky" radio option, but
Google says it is working on bringing those in a
future update.
On a smaller note, you'll see that the iOS Play
Music app uses a new flatter looking logo for the
service. We expect that will filter across to Android
soon enough.
