There are many good music streaming app in the market for both Android and iOS, but Google Play Music app which was exclusively available for US audience for past couple of years has recently launched its service in UK and some other countries is one option which is worth considering.
Google Play Music which available on both iOS and Android store will be competing against some of the market favorites like Spotify, Radio, iTunes and Rhapsody. It will be very interesting to see how people react to a stock Google music streaming application and weather this attempt from Google can provide any good results for the company.
To be fair, if you are already subscribed to a music streaming application its very pointless of shifting from there to here as all of them present to you millions of songs to download. Google Play Music has a collection of over 20 millions songs which is par with all the other major streaming applications. All of their application plays music online locally without streaming the music through the WiFi or through a cell data connection which is a very good feature to have, but again most of the other application also present users with similar features. They also have a radio feature through which you would not have to select the playlist, although the quality of the music is a bit low in radio.
Google Music along with Spotify do stands out from the heard in one aspect which is that the music which is downloaded can be played back through the desktop client (in Spotify) and uploaded to cloud (in Google music). Apart from this all the other things are probably very similar in all the application.
In terms of the charges Play Music is certainly a cheaper alternative as of now. They are offering a discounted subscription of $7.99 per month as of June this year after which they will charge $9.99 like all others.
Download File in MP3 Format
Another advantage of Google and also with Spotify is that they both lets user download the actual MP3 file, just like the one which you transfer on to your device through PC. But this is a locker service, which would mean that only Google and other major subscriptions let you download those uploaded files. Google will only let you download these files on computer i.e. non android devices.
The biggest problem with Play Music is that Google will ask you to use credit card if you want to avail the services. There is a free 30 days subscription provided by Google after which the charges will kick in automatically, unless you unsubscribe after 29 days.
Goggle music is surprisingly a very easy to use application. it has got very easy subscription policy, the user interface is also not at all complicated and application is also very smooth. All the features can be easily accessed even by a not so tech person. On the whole Google has launched a good and a very easy to use application which is currently also a cheaper option to have.
