Google has launched its subscription based music service for its Android devices called Google Play Music All Access back in May. At the time of its launch, Google's Android head Sundar Pichai announced that the Google Music iOS app will be launched in June. But that was not happened yet.
But now, Engadget reports that Google is planning to launch its native Google Music iOS app later in October. Google is testing the app internally as some of its "employees have been invited to test the app." Tech giant still encounters some bugs in the app that needs to be fixed before launch. And the Google's streaming music iOS app also said to have same custom radio and smart recommendation features as present in its current Android music app.
Why Google delayed its Play Music All Access iOS app. It is said that Google is facing some DRM issues in its streaming music iPhone and iPad app. Engadget reports, "Flash was needed to enforce DRM restrictions set by music labels." But good news is that Google has resolved these issues and almost ready to launch its iOS app sometimes later in this month.
