Google has launched its new music streaming service that competes heavily with Spotify. The new service, called Google Play Music All Access, promises to bring a unique, Google approach to subscription music.

Features are pretty much similar to Spotify – you have access to its large library of music to stream, while also able to store your own music (via its locker service). In addition, there is a radio “without rules” – letting you play any song immediately, and remove them with a swipe of a finger.

It’s US$9.99 per month with a 30-day trial. As usual, this will be out in the US only.

Google has also shown off new changes to Google Play. The website will get a brand new redesign to match the brand new design on its tablet and mobile apps; while also showing off a new option to show tablet-designed applications (based on their guidelines) when viewing the top lists.
