It’s been more than two years since Google launched its music streaming service, Play Music All Access, but so far only Android and desktop Web users have been able to tune into the music. But the sources familiar with Google’s plan have mentioned that Google is preparing to launch Play Music All Access for iOS users later this month.
Google Play Music All Access is a subscription service costing $9.99/month. The service is designed to compete with Spotify, providing songs on demand that can be streamed to a computer or mobile device. However, the Google Play Music All Access service was supposed to come to iOS within a few weeks of launch, but was reportedly delayed because of issues with record company DRM requirements. And due to that delay, several unofficial Google Music apps were successful to made their way to the App Store in between that time.
But now, some sources familiar with Google’s plan have mentioned that Google is “testing a native Google Music iOS app” internally and plans to launch it later this month. The sources have mentioned that right now Google’s employees have been invited to test the app. Google will also fix bugs before releasing Google Play Music All Access for iOS.
