Google’s streaming music service has gone live for UK Android users today, with the Spotify-rivaling radio and discovery tool now ready for access here. It’s priced at £7.99 a month, although you’re allowed to give it a free 30-day trial period should you sign up for it right now.
Your £7.99 subscription gets you unlimited access to Google’s song library, no adverts, track-skipping and more, all accessed through the usual Play Music app you’ve probably already got on your phone, and Google’s desktop player.
Making it work seems to require initially activating it through the desktop Play Store music section, as we couldn’t figure out how to do it via a phone. Heading to this link ought to get it fired up for you: http://play.google.com/intl/ALL_uk/about/music/
Once that’s done, you get a “Radio” tab added to the Android Play Music app’s slide-in menu bar, which lets you search and listen to pretty much everything you can possibly imagine from the world of music.
