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.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
