Google Play Music may finally hit iOS this month
Okay, we're not getting excited on this one, because we've heard this report multiple times before. Back in May when Google first announced Google Play Music All Access, Sundar Pichai claimed the app would be hitting iOS "in a couple weeks". Last month, 18 weeks after that original statement from Pichai, we heard that the app would be launching on iOS by the end of October.

Now we're 24 weeks after Pichai claimed "a couple weeks" and we still haven't seen the iOS version of Google Play Music. But, we do have yet another rumor claiming that the app will make it to iOS sometime in November. The app was said to be in internal testing at Google as of last month; and now, uber-leaker Evleaks is claiming that the release of the app is "imminent".

At this point though, we'll believe it when we see it. We don't know what has been causing the delays, but if there's even one minor bug in the app when it launches, we'll be wondering what Google has been doing for the past 6 months.

They don't trust us Canadians either.
Wish they'd get this fixed soon too.

The problem with play is they make it difficult to get the music off the player onto a cd.

I like that Google supports cross platform on some of the apps/services they offer. Even a direct competitor like Apple. Smart from them to gain more terrain from iOS users.

This app in particular because Apple charges $25 a year for iTunes Match to do the same thing which this app will do for free. I've tried 3rd party Google Play Music apps, but they aren't consistent and are buggy with the occasional crash or freeze. I can't wait for this to come to iOS.

Eurgh, why would you be getting excited over this anyway?? It's an awful app with a horrible UI. This, along with the Google Play Store, is the main reason i haven't fully switched to Android...

This was the only reason why I didn't buy an iPhone, because Google Music was not there and all of my money I put towards the android devices would have gone away. And I would have to use the "App Store".
