Google Play Music goes live in 7 more countries, India still not on the list
The big news this time is that Google is rolling out Play Music as well as All Access for seven more countries. Sadly, India is nowhere on the radar yet. The Play Music and All Access feature has arrived in European countries like the Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Netherlands, Russia and Switzerland, according to a report by Android Police . The news of Google Play Music and All Accesss rollout to more countries comes only a few days after it was revealed that Googles Play Books had finally made its way to New Zealand and a few more countries in Asia. No India on the horizon yet With this rollout, Google Play Music is now available in 20 territories the world over with the companys main focus on the US and Europe and All Access is available in 19 of these countries, with the exception of Germany. For those not in the know, Google Play Music is the Internet giants music store while All Access is the music streaming platform associated with it. All Access was introduced earlier this year at the Google I/O and was made available for about US $10 in available areas. India, as well as a host of other countries, is missing out on gaining access to Google Play Music, thanks to legal constraints. Theres hope, however, for India, since Google has introduced services like Play Books and more importantly Play Movies in the country. Play Movies was introduced in India back in March, post the Google I/O. The service lets users rent movies for as little as Rs 80 and even purchase it for about Rs 190. The availability of the Movies section of Google Play should be a good reason to pave the way to make Google Play Music and All Access available in the subcontinent.
