Google Play Music All Access now available in Australia

Google has made its new Play Music All Access subscription music service available in Australia

Google has made its new Play Music All Access subscription music service available in Australia, following a worldwide launch back in May.

None

The company flicked the switch on the music service in Australia and New Zealand today, two months after it was made available for the US market at Google's annual I/O conference in San Francisco.

Google Play Music All Access 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.

It will cost Australian users $11.99 per month, though users who sign up to the subscription based service by Wednesday, 31 August will only pay $9.99 per month.

A 30-day free trial of the service is available to all Australian and New Zealand customers.

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 in April, almost a year and a half since it made its debut in the US.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
