Google Play Music Migrates North To Canada

After a lengthy U.S.-only rollout, Google Play Music streaming is now available in Canada, and the timing comes on the verge of Canadian Music Week. "Canada you have spoken and we have heard you loud and clear,” said Google's director of global music partnerships Zahavah Levine on Monday. “I could not be more thrilled to announce Google Play Music is launching in Canada this afternoon.”

$9.99 per month (with a $7.99 per month introductory rate) gets Canucks unlimited listening to Google’s 25 million or so tracks and radio channels; up to 20,000 tracks from your own music collection stored in the cloud; and track sharing via Google+.

Apparently, Google has sorted out the complicated licensing and royalties problems involved with such a service north of the border. Now, Google can compete with the likes of Rdio and Spotify in Canada as well as in the U.S.--not to mention iTunes--although it’s a rather crowded market in which to compete.

Wow. I saw a banner for this yesterday on Google Play and had just figured I was seeing the US site by accident. With this move, I hope Amazon will get its act together and bring its MP3 service to Canada as well. It still blows me away that I can access a service like 7Digital, yet Amazon of all companies doesn't offer its service here.

Impatient wait is over for the Canadians. Google heard their request and now the Google Play Music is fully accessible in the Canada.
