Google Music All Access, the company's streaming music service, will come to Apple iOS sometime this summer, according to a Google executive.

Speaking at the D11 conference, Android and Chrome chief Sundar Pichai said All Access is due for iOS in "a couple weeks."

A Google representative confirmed that, but hedged on the timeline, saying only, "Google Play All Access is coming to iOS this summer."

"[T]he teams are working like crazy to do it," said Pichai.

The service launched a few weeks ago at Google I/O 2013, the company's annual developer's conference. All Access costs $10 per month with a 30-day free trial, though people who sign up before June 30 will pay a reduced introductory rate of $8.

Currently, All Access is available only in the U.S. Google has said it expects to expand the service to more countries in the near future.
