We’re hearing that Google Play Music for iPad is getting close to release and a tipster has sent in a few videos showcasing what he/she claims is a pre-release of the new app in action. We’ve heard independently that Play Music for the iPad was getting close to delivery and our tipster says these are development builds. The app will function similarly to the iPhone version, but is redesigned for iPad.
We are still somewhat skeptical of the screenshots below, but the app’s functionality (shown in the videos) seems like a lot of work to fake and seems to work iPhone version and it would make sense for Google to release it for iPad. Though we’re still unsure if the update will arrive as a universal build or if Google will have separate versions available in the App Store.
Google Play Music was released for iPhone back in November 2013 and launched with a free 1-month trial of its All Access radio service for new users. It’s unclear if Google will run the same promotion with the iPad launch, but since its release, Google Play music has been a strong competitor to Spotify and …uh …Beats.
We pinged a contact at Google who thought it had been released already. It’s possible that this app has already been submitted to Apple and is pending release, but we’ll keep an eye on the App Store and update this article if anything shows up.
Check out the videos and screenshots for a closer look at the alleged Google Play Music app for iPad.
