Google Play Music now available in India

Google Play Music goes live in India

Almost five years after the music store went live in the US, Google finally releases Play Music on the Android dominated Indian market.

Google Play Music has managed to keep going for over five years in a quite crowded market that makes survival quite difficult. However, it looks like online music streaming is taking off even in emerging markets these days, so entering India sounds like a natural choice. Although it took Google such a long time to hit this market where Android devices are very popular, now it is finally happening.

The launch of Google Play Music might not be official yet, but since it comes soon after the Internet search giant announced that Allo Assistant and Smart Replies would get Hindi support, it is not something surprising, either. A few Android Police readers from India have just tipped the website that their handsets now show Play Music and allows them to purchase songs. 

The service might still need a few tweaks at this stage since it looks like the premium subscription plan known as Google Play Music All Access is not available for purchase yet. We will keep an eye on Google Play Music's Indian saga and we will get back to it as soon as we find out anything new, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
