Official Google Music ‘All Access’ App Planned To Arrive On iOS This Month

An official app called gMusic has been working with All Access for months.

Google is late to the game. An official app called gMusic has already been working with All Access for months.

If you’re a user of Google Play’s “All Access” music subscription service, then you’ll be excited to learn that Google has an official iOS client slated to arrive later this month.

Engadget reports that, “Sources aware of Google’s plans have let slip to Engadget that not only is the company currently testing a native Google Music iOS app internally, but that it’ll launch later this month.” Google still needs to reportedly squash a few bugs before the app is ready for prime time.

All Access is currently available in over 19 countries around the world after Google unveiled the service back in May. The service costs $10 per month for complete access to stream Google Music’s catalog, personalized radio stations, and a digital “locker” for storing songs.

Unofficial iOS apps like gMusic have worked with All Access in the absence of Google’s own app. Engadget says that Google was having trouble releasing its own client because it couldn’t figure out DRM without Flash in iOS, but that issue seems to have been resolved.
