Google Play Music All Access coming to iOS in
We had already known that Google was planning to bring its new Play Music All Access streaming service to iOS, and now we have more of an idea when that will happen. During his talk with Walt Mossberg at the AllThingsD D11 conference, after announcing the HTC One Google Edition, new Android chief Sundar Pichai said that All Access will be coming to Apple's platform in "a couple weeks".

This isn't really a surprise, because as Pichai said, it's "in Google's DNA... to be universally accessible." Google has already ported a ton of apps to iOS, and Google Play Music All Access is simply the next one to make the leap. It is telling though that this move didn't happen until after All Access was launched. We can't say for sure, but we suspect this means you won't be able to purchase music or maybe not even subscribe to the $10 per month service through the iOS app, because then Google would have to give 30% to Apple. 

More likely, the app will only give users the streaming music and any music you may have in your Google Music library, but no purchasing options. But, that's just an educated guess. We'll see for sure in a couple weeks. Pichai said it will come to both iPhone and iPad, but didn't mention if the iPad version would be optimized or not. We'd guess not, since both the Google Maps and YouTube apps are still not iPad optimized yet.

Been using the Android version since day one and really like it.

I'm looking forward to the iOS version.

Time for iTunes to make it way to Android. If I could access Google All access on both Android and iDevice. iTunes only on iDevice. I will definitely build my music library on the Google platform.
