Pichai made the announcement in response to a question about how Google approached cross-platform apps on iOS and other platforms.
“In Google’s fundamental DNA…is that we wanted to be universally accessible, and I think that philosophy carries through to today,” said Pichai. “A couple of weeks from now, we’re going to launch Google All Access Music…the teams are working like crazy to make it available on iOS. In a few weeks, we’ll launch Google Play Music All Access for iOS.”
The Google All Access Music service launched on May 15th at the Google I/O conference. Offering a Spotify-style combination of on-demand streaming and radio, it is currently only available in the USA and costs $9.99 per month with a 30-day free trial.
