Google Play Music challenging Internet radioWhen Apple releases a new feature for iOS, you can bet Google won’t be far behind with its own app for iPhone users. In the case of iTunes Radio, it took all of a month for Google Play Music to show up in Apple’s App Store — along with a free trial of its $9.99/month All Access service.

That All Access premium service includes the ability to download songs locally (for offline use), a choice of three different streaming qualities, and Google’s own algorithm-driven streaming Internet radio service, ad-free. Naturally, users can buy music from Google Play and stream music from an iOS device to Google’s Chromecast.

As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
