Google's All Access Music Spotify-Competitor Is Finally Live in the UK

By Sam Gibbs on at

Fancy yourself a streaming music service powered by Google? Spotify just not doing it for you? Well then, we have good news this morning, as big G has just flipped the switch on its All Access music service, firing it into the UK and across Europe. You'll get a free first month of streaming too.

Of course, if you're like me you've already got a monster music collection stored on Google's servers as part of Google's 20,000 free song matching and upload locker thing, but All Access music gives you, err, access to a vast library of music for £10 a month, exactly the same as Spotify premium.

I'm not quite sure why you'd side with Google over Spotify, given you can use Spotify on many more devices at the moment, but maybe the free month, plus the first month running you just £8 will get you to sign up before August 31st? If you're interested, read our hands-on with it before taking the plunge.
