On Wednesday, at the Google I/O conference, the search giant made a few big announcements, which includes a new Google Play music service that is called All Access, and a Samsung Galaxy S4 device with the newest unaltered version of Android.
First up, we have Google Play All Music, which is a music service that will set you back $9.99 per month. The service focuses mainly on personalized recommendations via the Explore feature. Users will also have the ability to start a radio station while listening to a song, this is something similar to what Spotify and other services has done before. Users will even have the option to remove a song from the radio that they do not enjoy.
Furthermore, there's a feature called Listen Now, which highpoints new music and other contents that Google think you'll enjoy listening to. As we said above, All Access will set you back $9.99 per month in the US, and all new users will get a 30 day free trial. In addition, if you sigh up before June 30, you'll get a $2 off discount, though it was not mentioned how long this discount would run for.
Samsung Galaxy S4 with Stock Android
Another big reveal at Google I/O, is a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that runs the newest version of Android Jellybean without any alteration. This is probably the one device many Android owners would like to have in their pockets. The device is basically the same as the original, it has 4G LTE, 16GB of internal memory, SD card slot, and the handset is available both on T-Mobile and AT&T.
The device won't be on a contract, so do not expect to pay $199 for it. Come June 26, the device will go on sale via Google Play for $649.
