Google launches music streaming service in Europe

Google’s new music streaming service, Google Play Music All Access, has launched in nine countries in western Europe.

The subscription service is available from today in Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and the UK.

The UK version is available for £9.99 (€11.56) a month, with a one-month free trial and discount available for those signing up before September 15.

The music service gives unlimited access to a range of music on demand and is available via apps for smartphones and tablets, and on the web. Subscribers can link the service with Google’s cloud-based digital locker, enabling them to store their own music tracks and play them alongside tracks from the All Access catalogue.

The service rolled out in the US, Australia and New Zealand earlier this year.
