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.

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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
