Google unveiled its Google Play Music All Access service back in May at Google I/O but only offered it in the U.S. It has since expanded to a few other countries but Canada has yet to be among them. Fortunately, Canadians still looking for an alternative to Rdio and Slacker Radio (among others) may receive some good news within days. MobileSyrup has learned that Google will launch the service in Canada by the end of August, leaving it with only a few days to make the announcement.
The service offered in Canada will be similar to that offered in other countries. For CA$9.99 a month, users will have access to a variety of music including custom radio stations and playlists. The Explore feature will highlight new artists or music based on your listening habits. You’ll also be able to upload up to 20,000 songs to the Google Play Music locker and access them later through your Android smartphone or tablet.
Google could also announce the availability of Google Play gift cards at the same time. Initial partners will include Shoppers Drug Mart and Target.
Rest assured we’ll let you know as soon as Google makes things official!
