Play Music and All Access comes to Mexico while Canada waits patiently

Good news south of the border, as Google Play Music and All Access has arrived in Mexico. After a larger rollout in Europe recently, Google has seen fit to bring their popular streaming service to our neighbors just below California. The announcement was initially made from the Google Mexico Google+ account.


Mexican music fans will enjoy the same benefits as anyone else, with a full 30-day free trial for All Access, and a discounted rate thereafter. Users must sign up for the trial by November 11, and can enjoy a monthly fee of MX$79 if they stay with All Access. If they sign up after the November deadline, or have an interruption in service, the price will jump to MX$99.

All Access was created to help create a revenue stream for Google, as well as entice users away from other platforms like Pandora or Spotify. While the catalog for Play Music is sometimes limited in comparison, the pricing is right.

The same 20,000 song upload limit is in effect for Mexico as well. The service is available now, and music fans in Mexico can simply go to the Play Store via desktop or mobile. Oddly, while much of the world is getting or has Play Music and All Access, Canada still goes wanting.

    Frustrating. I realize it’s not only Google’s fault, but music services and governmental laws, but if Google is having a hard time getting agreements with douchey music companies, then they should let us, the users, know so we can raise a stink towards these companies, and raise awareness. Its easy to hate on Google, until they make it clear who’s fault it really is.

    ps, if anyone tries to mention the “VPN” workaround again, YES. We get it. But no thanks, I’m not risking my Google account for that.

    In all the GPMAA articles, there’s a lot of noise made about making this available in India and Canada.Wonder if Google is listening..

    I’m not very patient anymore. It seems like almost the entire world has music except Canada (and India and a few others that pop out in my mind). I used to think maybe its because Canada isn’t a huge market, then they release it in countries with populations much less than ours… then I think it must be music rights/governmental regulations… but if thats so, why are similar services like ITunes + iTunes Rdio (coming early 2014 according to rumours), Xbox Music, Rdio, and Songza all here and doing fine? Clearly they got through somehow… it just boggles my mind!
