Google Play Music app

Google is continuing to gradually roll out its Play Music service around the globe, today another seven countries have joined Google’s music streaming club.

If you live in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, New Zealand, or Portugal then you’ll be able to start enjoying Google Play Music as of today. Residents of these countries can now add up to 20,000 songs from their existing music collection, and listen to music from their web browser and Android phone or tablet via Play Music, even when they’re offline.

Google Play Music seems to be expanding rather slowly, currently only 12 countries – including major markets like the United Kingdom and United States – have access to the service, but nevertheless this is a welcome announcement.

We’re still waiting to see whether to service will head to Asia, and when Canada and South America will be added to the list, but hopefully today’s announcement means that the service will be rolling out to a bunch more countries in the near future.

    I wonder when they will bring it to Greece! Anyhow, there is a workaround to have it, even if you don’t have music in your country.

      Yea, just sign up for it via a proxy. Only needs you to be in an eligible country for that registration bit. I’ve been using it since it came out.

    Yeap. My iTunes Match subscription is expiring in about 1 month. As far as I can, I’ll have to renew my subscription with Apple to keep my playlist updated. When I first saw “7 new countries” my eyes shone, but that lasted about 4 seconds. Brazil again left behind despite the amount of users.
