Music Services: Google Play (and All Access)

M

Part two in the online music services reviews. Today, it is Google Play and its All Access “Subscription” service. In 2011 when Google announced Play and their music service, my hopes were high. I was an early adopter (from when you needed an invite to join Gmail), and I assumed Google would rock this. You could store your music in their services, and play it anywhere. Up to a...

TL;DR version: Spotify wins To round out the saga, I needed to make a decision on whether to keep Google  All-Access or Spotify for my online streaming pleasure.
