Google releases Play Music app for iPhone after long delay

updated 11:50 am EST, Fri November 15, 2013

Includes support for All Access, Radio

Google has released a long-awaited iPhone version of its Play Music app. On a basic level, Play Music lets users listen to up to 20,000 songs uploaded from a desktop or laptop system; the iPhone and Android apps let users cache personal playlists locally for offline playback. By paying $10 per month people can additionally subscribe to All Access, a service with a complete catalog of songs and support for radio stations generated from individual songs, artists, or albums.

The iPhone release has had a troubled history. It was originally slated to come a few weeks after the announcement of Play's All Access and Radio features, which happened in May. Google then went silent, and reports suggested that the company was having problems getting the app approved by Apple. Rumors of an impending launch resumed in October, culminating in a Thursday leak suggesting a launch was "imminent."

The app is a free download and requires iOS 6 or later. At the moment, the app lacks a native iPad interface.
