Google's new Play Music All Access service isn't available in Australia

Google's new streaming music service isn't available in Australia, at least initially

Google has launched a new subscription music service that allows users unlimited access to millions of songs, but it isn't available in Australia.

None

Unveiled overnight at Google's annual I/O conference in San Francisco, Google Play Music All Access will cost US$9.99 per month. It is a streaming music service that works like existing competitors Spotify and Rdio, allowing users to stream songs on-demand to a computer or Android device.

A 30-day free trial of the service is available and Google will drop the monthly fee to US$7.99 for any users who sign up before Thursday 30 June 30th. However, Google has not confirmed pricing or availability for markets outside of the US.

Like other streaming music services, Google Play Music All Access lets users add tracks to their library and download them for offline use. A radio service that creates a playlist based on a selected song, album, or artist is also available.

Other features of Google Play Music All Access include a recommendation service that will suggest new music to listen to, the ability to see what track is playing next and a playlist that combines local tracks and tracks available for streaming.

The Google Play Music All Access service is part of Google's existing music store for Google Play, called Google Play Music. That service, which allows users to download and purchase music from the Google Play store and upload their own personal music collection to store in the Google Cloud, only launched in Australia last month, almost a year and a half since it made its debut in the US.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
