Google took the wraps off of its subscription music streaming service last week at its I/O Developers Conference. To the dismay of many, Google Play Music All Access was only available for Android smartphones and tablets. This isn’t the first time Google has initially ignored iPhone and iPad users — the company’s music upload service, known as Google Listen Now, was also never officially made available on iOS. Luckily enough, third-party developers are creating applications to access the services on Apple devices.
James Clancey is the man behind gMusic, the most popular Google Music app on iOS. Clancy sprung into action after hearing Google’s announcement, determined to bring the subscription music streaming service to iPhone and iPad users. He submitted an updated version of his app to Apple on Monday, and it will hopefully be available shortly.
For iOS users looking to access Google’s new streaming music service, gMusic is available for $1.99 in the App Store for devices running iOS 5 or higher.
