About the Application
Google Play Music was created as a music streaming and track storage application. In May 2011, the developers launched a beta version of the app, and in November it became available to all users.
The service’s online storage includes millions of different songs from artists around the world. The application allows users to download music to their phone or listen to it directly from the storage. These options are only available by subscription. Google Play Music provides a free 30-day trial period, and after that it starts charging users a subscription fee.
Google Play Music also has a radio station option. The playlist is compiled based on all the user’s musical preferences.
After the first registration, the service offers users a free subscription that includes the following features:
- playlist making function;
- radio without ads;
- listening to any tracks from the application’s library.
After the trial period expires, the app starts charging users a fixed amount of money every month. You can cancel your subscription in advance by selecting the appropriate item in the Settings menu. However, the application will work until the paid period ends, even after the subscription is canceled.
Users can use all the features of Google Play Music without restrictions by purchasing a subscription. There are two of them in the application:
- Individual plan: the cheapest, works on one account.
- Family plan: more expensive, allows users to connect up to 6 accounts.
After paying for a subscription, users get access to the track storage, they can add their music to the library, download songs and listen to them at any time, even while offline. Google Play Music works with the official Android Music Player.
