On Google+ today, Google announced a new partnership with Starbucks which will provide free WiFi and the ability for customers at Starbucks locations to stream unlimited songs, radio and more from Google’s latest feature in Google Play Music, All Access. Apple also has similar promotions and continues to offer free iTunes content and more through Starbucks locations. In fact, back in 2007, they announced a partnership with Starbucks in the US to offer a free iTunes WiFi music Store, and it continues to offer its free app and song of the week picks through physical cards in store and through mobile apps.
Google’s new All Access service is still limited to the US only. But we are hoping our friends outside the US will be able to enjoy All Access soon. I know I’m enjoying it, perhaps too much. There is also an iOS version of the app coming soon. Here’s Google Play’s post from Google+:
Coffee is better with music. Head to +Starbucks Coffee, enjoy WiFi on us & stream millions of songs, radio, playlists and more on Music #AllAccess : US- Web:goo.gl/hMzOn, Mobile : goo.gl/fxgHF #MusicMonday
So for those of you that go to Starbucks and grab some coffee and do some work while you’re there you’ll be able to enjoy some free Google Play Music All Access. Sounds like a pretty good deal right? I just wish Google would shorten the name of the product. Google Play Music All Access seems like an extra long name. I’d like something like Google Music Pro or something, or am I the only one that thinks the name is too long?
