This should be welcome news, especially for those who signed up for Spotify's three month subscription in December last year and whose trial has now ran out. Google is now offering a big discount for anyone who wants to try Google Play Music All Access, the company's subscription music streaming service.
Subscribing to Google Play Music usually costs you a monthly charge of $9.99, but now Google is offering users a three-month subscription for only $3. To be clear, that is $3 for the entire three months, not $3 for each month. That is equivalent to savings of almost $27.
Play Music is Google's answer to other music streaming service providers like Spotify and Rdio, whose subscription costs also range around ten bucks every month. Play Music currently has a catalogue of more than 30 million songs that users can stream or download onto up to ten devices maximum per account. Listeners can browse through thousands of playlists that are created based on mood, time of day, or even what activity the user is doing at the moment (courtesy of Songza).
Play Music has been around since May 2013, but it has not quite hit the popularity level of its competitors, notably Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody, and even Google's own YouTube Music Key. But last year, Google has begun upgrading its music streaming service, integrating YouTube's library, and adding an extensive collection of playlists through Songza, which Google bought in June last year for a total amount of $39 million.
The $3 three-month trial subscription should help Google Play Music All Access attract new subscribers, or even better, entice subscribers of rival music streaming providers to also try Google's service. Or at the very least, it should create enough noise to let people discover for themselves what Google can offer in terms of music streaming services.
Google is offering this deal until March 17th of this year, and is open only to new subscribers. This special offer is also part of Google's celebration of its Play Store's third birthday. Indeed, Google Play customers may have already gotten emails presenting various offers that include e-books that cost only $3, a free copy of Transformers, and of course, this new $3 three month subscription on Google Play Music All Access.
But wait -- what happens after your three month trial subscription on Google Play Music All Access runs out? Uses will either have to cancel their service or sign up for the full $9.99 monthly subscription.
