Google Play Music coming to iOS this month

Posted: , by Michael H.

Google Play Music coming to iOS this month
"In a couple weeks" is one of the most overused phrases in the tech world. It feels like when a company uses the phrase like "in a couple weeks", "in a few weeks", or "in the coming weeks", the real translation tends to end up being "expect it when you see it". That's what has happened with so many products, and has happened with Google Play Music for iOS.

Back in May, a literal couple weeks after Google first announced Google Play Music All Access, the company claimed that the iOS version of the app would be released "in a couple weeks". Here we are exactly 18 weeks since Sundar Pichai made that statement, and we still haven't seen the iOS version of Google Play Music. 

According to a new report, Google is currently testing the app internally, and has invited its employees to test it out so they can iron out any remaining bugs; and, the iOS version of Google Play Music is expected to be released by the end of this month. There is no word on what has caused the long delay in releasing the app, but we may be close to the end of the wait it seems.

Apple refuses to release iTunes on Android, Google releases their music service on iOS.

Good company Google.

No it's about making money, not being a "good company". Google has no problem getting their apps in as many hands as possible.....more users, more ad revenue. End of story.

Let's not delude ourselves. It's always about making money.

Easily the most used app on my phone. Thanks to T-Mobile's unlimited data plan, streaming music everywhere I go is an almost ritualistic routine.

Delay was, down sizing the apps resolution.

That wouldn't make sense since Play Music is on nearly all Android devices, even low end devices that have low resolutions.
