It was three months ago that Google unleashed Google Play Music All Access to the world — well at least to the US. Since then Google has been rather quiet about roll-out plans to other countries, with Australia the only country to get it in that three month window.

Now users from the UK and eight other European countries may now access the music streaming service. Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain are all included in the latest roll-out, which gives them unlimited access to Google Play Music.

Google has chosen the symbol switch method when charging for Google Play Music All Access, meaning UK users will be stung with a much more expensive bill than US and other European users.

Of course Google is optimistic that you are going to fall in love with the service, offering a 30 day free trial if you sign up before September 15. After that initial 30 day trial you will charged at a lower rate of £7.99 and ‚¬7.99 respectively. If you aren’t quite ready to make the plunge and don’t act before September 15, you’ll be stuck with the higher £9.99 and ‚¬9.99 price tag.

You can sign up to the service now from Google Play.
