After the successful launches of Play Music in Europe, Magazines in Canada, and Movies in a handful of countries, Google has made another step in its international Play crusade, today bringing Movies and Books to Brazil. Android users in South America's largest country will now have access to thousands of Brazilian titles from Google's collection, along with movies and TV shows. Interestingly, Google's own international availability page hasn't been updated at the time of writing to reflect the expansion to Brazil, but just the same, users can access the store and look for their favorite titles. Of course, the addition of Brazil only brings the total number of countries with access to Play Books and Movies to around ten, but it's still nice to see Google continuing the arduous task of expanding their media services globally. If you're a Brazilian Android user who's been chomping at the bit to consume your favorite books and movies from the Play Store, just hit the appropriate link … [Read more...] about Google Now Offering Up Play Books And Movies In Brazil

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Which Would You Buy Today, The Samsung Galaxy S III Or The HTC One X? Google launched the Play Store in March in an attempt to consolidate the Books, Movies, Music, and Apps under one umbrella. Obviously the Apps section sees a ton of action, but we're not so sure that the other three have really found any traction. So we're taking the question to you, although our readers admittedly aren't the most unbiased of audiences to ask about this. Do you use Google Play Music to purchase tracks or albums on any sort of regular basis? Obviously, "regular basis" is subjective, but we're going to leave it up to you to determine your answer. Sound off in the poll, then head on down to the comments to share your thoughts. … [Read more...] about [Weekend Poll] Do You Regularly Purchase Tracks/Albums Using Google Play Music?
Google is breaking up its premium YouTube Red service into two new offerings: a YouTube Music streaming service, available either for free with ads or for $9.99 per month, and a YouTube Premium for original video content, costing $11.99 per month. YouTube Music is Google’s most direct competitor to Spotify yet, coming with “a reimagined mobile app” and a new desktop player, both of them designed specifically for music. The YouTube advantage, argues Google, is that it will combine all the official versions of songs with access to “thousands” of related playlists, remixes, covers, live versions, and of course, music videos. Google’s AI mastery is also being integrated into YouTube Music, with the promise that the app will discover songs either by lyrics or just a general description like “that hipster song with the whistling.” Music discovery is literally front and center in the new YouTube Music, with the app’s home screen … [Read more...] about Google announces YouTube Music and YouTube Premium
April 24, 2018 - Written By John Anon The launch of YouTube’s new premium music service, “Remix,” will spell the end for Google Play Music All Access, according to a new report out of Droid Life which in turn credits an unnamed “reliable source” for the information. No specifics on the changeover from one service to the other were provided other than the suggestion Google will look to have migrated all of its Play Music users to Remix by the end of 2018.Although Remix is the name that has now been attributed to the service, it still remains unclear whether that is actually the official name the service will launch with. As it was simply said to be the name being used internally when the first reports on the new music streaming service came to light – towards the end of last year. What does seem to be clear though is this is a music streaming service, and one that has very close associations with YouTube. Which had led to the assumptions that in … [Read more...] about Report: YouTube’s Remix To Replace Google Play Music
