SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – Google Inc. unveiled a streaming music service called All Access that blends songs users have already uploaded to their online libraries with millions of other tracks. Google made it available in the U.S. on Wednesday for $8 a month to early birds who sign up for service before June 30.
In addition to a 30-day free trial, the offer shaves $2 off the price of popular paid subscription plans from Spotify and Rhapsody. The service is an attempt by the world’s dominant Internet company to carve itself a bigger piece of the digital music pie as more people listen to streaming music on mobile devices.
The announcement Wednesday at Google’s annual developers conference in San Francisco at the Moscone Center kicks off a wave of developments as technology giants go beyond core music fans and look to entice more casual listeners.
