Bite o' Apple: Google launches streaming music service

Chris Yerga, Google engineering director for Android, announces the new Google Play Music All Access today in San Francisco.

Getting the jump on Apple, today Google announced its new streaming music service linked to Google Play for Android.

All Access -- unveiled Wednesday at the Google I/O developers conference in San Francisco -- is a competitor for Pandora and Spotify, a new service costing $9.99 a month (with a 30-day free trial, or sign up before June 30 and you'll get it for $7.99 a month).

Apple has been readying its own streaming service, a capper on its paradigm-shifting iTunes store, for a while now. Just last week Apple said its as-yet-unseen iRadio service struck a deal with Universal Music, but other music labels have yet to come on board. Remember when no one said no to Apple?
