Google Play Music is the must have music player for android device. It lets you play music offline (from your mobile device) or online (direct from online music library). Recently, Google has launched online music subscription service in India. It has already been started in the USA and other countries a few years back. Now, it’s time to Indian users to grab the opportunity. However, I am still confused about the continuity of the service in future days. Because, many companies like Nokia, Rediff, Flipkart closed their music streaming service after launching.
Compared to other similar services, Google Play Music subscription service is much cheaper. The service provides unlimited music access and downloads for the individual account. It is free until 18th of May, 2017 in India. If a user subscribes before the date, he/she can continue the service @₹89/month. Anyone, if wishes to subscribe the Google Play Online music subscription after that period, needs to pay ₹99/month.
The main feature of Google Play Music Service are as follows:
- Unlimited access to songs.
- Upload up to 50,000 songs to your library.
- Ad-free radio streaming with unlimited skip feature.
- Almost 40 million songs from all over the world.
- Create and play your own playlist.
- Download music on your device.
- Off-line music playing feature.
