New Google Play Music All Access subscription service at $9.99/mo with 30 day trial available in US today | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Today at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco, Google announced a new music streaming service called Google Play Music All Access. The service will compete with other entries to the market like Spotify, Rdio and Pandora.

Google Play Music All Access will run $9.99 in the US, with a 30-day free trial and it launches today. If you start your subscription by June 30 the price drops to $7.99 monthly.

“Music unites us, it’s universal,” says Google’s Chris Yerga. “We set out to build a music service that didn’t just give you access to a world of music, but helped to guide you through it.”

YouTube to launch music streaming service, take on Spotify - Fortune Tech

YouTube to launch music streaming service, take on Spotify - Fortune Tech | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Exclusive: Google is planning to roll out a music streaming service to capitalize on the power of YouTube...

 

Sources in the record industry told Fortune that it is not yet clear if a subscription-based model is more lucrative (and therefore preferable) to an ad-subsidized approach. Free nets more customers, but the subscription model has consumers actively paying for music -- a good thing, if you're in the music business, which just posted its first year-on-year increase in sales in thirteen years....

 

Google is entering an already crowded field: Spotify, Pandora (P), Rdio, Soundcloud, and Muve Music all offer customers similar access to large online music libraries. Apple is rumored to be building a "radio" feature in its iTunes program that would deliver streaming music based upon a user's tastes -- a service something like Pandora -- that further merges the experience of being in a "store" to purchase music, and then listening to it in a "player."

 

They're all fighting over a still small pie. U.S. consumers have been fairly slow to join -- and stick with -- subscription music services. The most popular, Muve Music, has just 1.4 million customers. (Spotify is close behind, with about 1 million.) Its success is in large part due to the fact that it bundles its price into a cellphone bill, as if it were a cable operator charging for an MTV/VH1 package. The mobile carrier that owns Muve, Cricket, is then able to sell subscriptions at less than $5 a month, far lower rates than Spotify, which generally costs about twice that much.

 

Soundcloud, a free music streaming site that is user-curated and is, in many ways, similar in spirit and practice to YouTube, has recently begun partnering with major artists and large companies, such as Snoop Lion (nee, Dog) and Red Bull. Soundcloud boasts that it is the fastest growing music streaming site, with its users uploading about 10 hours of content a minute. In 2010, YouTube users uploaded 35 hours of content per minute; in 2011, they posted 48 hours per minute; as of last May, it was up to 72 hours a minute. It's not all music, but a lot is.

How would radio and webcasters fare when Google and Apple barrel into streaming? | RAIN: Radio And Internet Newsletter | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Clic"Companies like Google, Apple and Facebook are eyeing the streaming and on-demand music business now dominated by smaller niche companies such as Pandora and Spotify. When they do -- and most analysts agree it's really just a matter of time -- they could give nearly everyone the ability to listen to whatever they want, whenever they want -- and mostly for free," wrote San Jose Mercury News' Heather Somerville yesterday....

 

f true, this brings up a whole host of issues, some of which Somerville explores, like the impact on artists, consumers' relationship with music, and others. But where does it leave Internet radio: both pureplays like Pandora, and music broadcasters who'll rely more and more on digital efforts to grow? Smaller companies will have to become even more creative and agile to offer a value proposition the larger companies can't -- a sort of "boutique" existence, catering to niche and local audiences...

Helienne Lindvall: A YouTube subscription service without ads may be tied in with its Spotify-like audio-service

Google is said to be pushing for an ad-free YouTube subscription service to be tied in with its planned Spotify-like audio service. According to an executive familiar with the issue, the tech giant already has deals in place with a multitude of record labels, including the majors, for the audio subscription service. However, there is said to be disagreements regarding how Google should remunerate the labels for the bundled YouTube part of the subscription.
