It’s been two years since Google Music launched in November 2011 and until now there’s been no iOS app. Finally, according to tipster @evleaks, we can expect the app to arrive by the end of the month.
The Google Music iOS app, which @evleaks describes as “imminent”, was reported to be in its testing phase early in October. According to Matt Brian of Engadget: “We’re told that while employees have been invited to test the app, Google still needs to fix a few bugs before it’s ready for release.”
As if all that wasn’t enough Google’s very own Android head said at the D11 conference that Google Music would be making its way to iOS.
While Google Music is similar to Apple’s iTunes offering this version is cheaper and offers more freedom of use as it works on Android as well as any computer with a browser. It also offers scan-and-match access much like iTunes Match. Plus it’s available in a lot of Europe.
The app, which made Time’s 50 Best iPhone Apps list last year, also offers Google All Access paid streaming service at £7.99 month.
