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.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
