Three days left to save on Google All Access
It seems like everyone’s doing it now; unlimited access to almost all of the known recorded music history for a monthly fee. Rhapsody, Napster, Spotify, Apple and Google to name a few. But Google is launching their service with a discount for early adopters. Sign up before July 1st and save 20% on your subscription. The service will be comparably priced with other services at $9.99 per month, but signing up in the next three days will provide access for $7.99 per month.
Unless you’re walled into a competitor’s secret garden you should be aware that Google Play has one of the largest digital collections available. While not all of it is available for All Access subscribers, this subscription service should be a fine competitor to the near ubiquitous Spotify.
With Apple launching their service soon, Google is trying to get a head start. It will be interesting to see how this develops. It seems most musicians have already conceded the idea that selling music won’t earn a profit.
