“Google today launched a streaming music service that borrows from both Spotify and Pandora.  With the rather unwieldy title of Google Play Music All Access, the $9.99 per month music service includes curated playlists, Pandora-like song driven streams and access to tracks from all the major labels.

As expected, a rumored streaming music service for YouTube was not announced today.
There is a 30 day free trial, and U.S. users who sign up before June30th get an introductory price of $7.99.  But unlike most music streamers, Google Play Music All Access offers no free ad supported tier.
Users can blend their own uploaded songs with a catalog with the millions of tracks available on All Access. Music discovery is also a part of the new service. “We set out to build a music service that didn’t just give us access to great music, but that helps guide you to it,” Google engineering director Chris Yerga said.” – via Hypebot
