Google All Access - Overview

http://play.google.com
Hello blog readers! This service was brought to our attention in the comments of one of our Tech Wars articles. All of the writers here at AllStuffNerdy were quite suprised. None of us had ever heard of this service. So now it's our hope that you will go out and try out Google All Access too.

Google All Access was launched around 2013 by none other than Google as part of its massive Google Play store. It's a subscription based service running at $9.99 after a 30 day free trial. The library includes a large selection of songs including the more obscure bands on the market. As for right now, it only works on Android and in-browser. Supposedly there is an iOS app being created but no other sources have confirmed this. Google All Access streams high quality audio at 320 Kb/s. However Google All Access will by default select the quality based on your internet connection. So you will have to manually set it if you want to lock in the quality. In our experience, we loved it. At least during the free trial. Compared to Grooveshark (the winner of our last Tech Wars), the only reason I would still use Grooveshark is because it's free.

So let us know in the comments, are you going to try out Google All Access? Or are you going to stick with another service? let us know in the comments. And remember you get a free 30 day trial if you sign up here: https://play.google.com/about/music/allaccess/#/
