Google Play Music All Access coming to iOS

Earlier this month, Google introduced Google Play All Access during its I/O 2013 keynote. The service gives users the opportunity to access both custom streaming radio stations and on-demand track playback for about $10 a month – $8 if you get you subscription going before the end of June. That was cool if you were an Android user or just wanted to access the music over the web, but what about native support for other platforms? We’ve seen third-party work-arounds (really just dressing-up the web-based All Access) but so far nothing from Google itself. Well, after dropping the Nexus edition HTC One bombshell, Google’s Sundar Pichai has more good news for us today, announcing All Access for iOS.

There’s no hard ETA, but Pichai says that iOS users should be able to stream All Access on their devices sometime in the next few weeks. We’re optimistic that could mean it goes live before the end of June, but if it doesn’t iOS users might want to sign-up early for at least web access if they wish to lock-in Google’s introductory rate.

Of course, there’s no word on any similar effort to bring All Access – or any of Google’s music offerings – to Windows Phone. Given Google’s icy indifference to making its services available on the platform in the past, we can’t be surprised.
