When Google Music received the huge improvement of All Access unlimited streaming of music to take on Pandora and Spotify, many were sad to hear it was only for the US. Google’s just pushed Music All Access and Google Play Books to multiple new regions and countries and figured a quick shout out was in order.
Google Play Music All Access is the biggest news here, as it’s no longer a US exclusive. While big markets are still waiting for it, as I’m sure Google’s hard at work dealing with record labels, All Access can now be enjoyed in New Zealand and Australia. Down under can enjoy some classic tunes Google style.
According to a Google Support Page we can expect more regions in the future, but sadly have nothing to announce. Google Music is my new go-to music option, and I’ve since uninstalled Rdio and Spotify so the few new areas should be happy to give it a try. Too bad the discounted trial ended in June, and now you’ll be charged $9.99 per month for unlimited music.
Then according to Google multiple countries should now be seeing Google Play Books in their market on devices and the web. According to what we’re hearing Books are now in places like Romania, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece and even Hungary. Oh and we almost forgot Poland and Finland both have access now too. Hopefully Google Music reaches more locations soon, and we’ll report once we learn anything else.
