Google Music arrives to iOS through web app

Now that the Google Music service has been released for a couple of months now, we still have to see how we can get it to our iOS smartphones. Now, users can access the Google Music service through the Safari web browser, and not via an official iOS app.

The Google’s Music Beta has been available as an Android app since its unveiling at the I/O this year, and iOS users felt like they were left behind. Google just rolled out the app so Apple device users can join in on the fun as well.

The application can be accessed through the Safari browser by going to music.google.com, rather than the official Apple App Store. This bypasses the need for the Cupertino tech giant to approve an official app. Google said that they have no plans to make an official iOS app for the service.

The interface is just like an app, as you can swipe between songs, and the good thing about it is it can still play music even when the browser closes.

Not much has changed in the service since it was first unveiled in May. The music service enables users to upload their music files to the cloud and stream it to other computers or portable devices. Google has not been able to make deals with labels, so the service will work only on the music one owns.

The arrival of Google’s music service on the iOS platform will give the company a chance to get more people to use their service before Apple releases the iTunes Match on iCloud this autumn.

The Google Music is still in its beta phase and is free to users for the time being.
