Google Play Music, or sometimes called Play Music, is a service offered by Google as part of Google Play. It is a direct competitor to other services, like Apple's iTunes.

Unlike iTunes, Google Play Music is based in The Cloud, but also allows music to be cached offline. Music can be purchased through the service, or can be uploaded from a Windows or Mac computer using the music manager.

Mobile AppEdit

Google Play Music is available as a native application on Android and iOS. The app is included on Android by default, and is used to play any music stored on the device. However, it cannot be used to upload anything. On both operating systems, it streams music from the cloud the same way it does on the desktop site.

HistoryEdit

Google Play Music was originally released in 2011 under the name Google Music. The service began a closed beta testing period in the summer, and was publicly released in November 2011. The initial features included a music store, the capability to upload your own songs, and Google+ integration.

On March 6th, 2012, Google Music merged with the Android Market, Google Movies, and Google Books, and was renamed Google Play. Later on, more services where added, by these four were the original group that made up Google Play.
