All Access for Google Play

Google on Wednesday announced All Access, a streaming music service linked to Google Play for Android that puts it in direct competition with the likes of Spotify and Pandora.

As part of the service, Google Play users can look ahead to what's coming next, and if they don't like it, swipe the song away.

Catalog blend
