Google Play Music All Access


Recommended Posts

If there is anyone who has an android and has not checked out this new service, I highly recommend you try it before 6/30 (the cost goes from 8 to 10$).


The first month is free.


It works hand in hand with the free 20k tracks you can upload from your own library, anything that you don't already have in your library, you can 'add to library' and stream and/or cache it on your android device.


There is radio type streaming, which has this awesome queue where you can see and edit upcoming tracks.. adding, removing, rearranging the queue however you want.


Subscribe to public playlists etc. Lots of genre selections and recommendations based on artist/album/track.


Yeah I realize that rhapsody/rdio/spotify have done alot of this for some time, but I think google has nailed it on integration with local device content, content you can upload to the cloud, and the all access for everything else.


Some downsides are, you don't get to keep or copy any of the cached tunes, and while you can stream to the web based music library, you can only cache them on a mobile device.


You may also want to enable the high quality downloads in the player options, the default quality is somewhat lacking.

I'm using it.  I was already using Google Music to stream my library from the cloud anyways, so I'd thought I would give this a try.


So far I'm pretty happy with it.


I like the fact that the radio shows the next 15-20 songs or so.  And if you don't like anything in the future queue you can remove it

Great topic! Thanks for your input and opinions on this guys. I'm curious to hear more, as I'm considering ditching my XM satellite radio account in favor of Google Music All Access.

Ditched my Sirius long ago after having it for 5 or so years after they removed my radio show I used to listen to.


Listened to Google music on one of the radio stations in a 3g area and was actually impressed it never sputtered even on high quality. It could have been since in was roaming during one area but I didn't notice if it was. Might end up keeping it. Now if only my 4g site that covers my work would handle the streaming during the lunch hours... 4000ms pings during the lunch crunch are not good for any streaming even if it is just audio over LTE.

    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
