Exec mum on talk of 'holding pattern' at App Store

An official Google Play Music app with All Access support will be coming to iOS in the next few weeks, Google Android head Sundar Pichai has confirmed at the ongoing D11 conference. All Access is currently only accessible via Android and the web, as well as third-party iOS apps like gMusic. A Google iOS app has been rumored for about a week, but was supposedly in a "holding pattern" at the App Store while Google and Apple tried to come to an agreement about acceptable features. Pichai hasn't commented on that matter.

All Access is a streaming music service mixing features of rivals like Spotify and Pandora. Currently it costs $8 per month, but that rate will go up to $10 per month starting June 30th. Apple is rumored to be working on a streaming service of its own, often nicknamed "iRadio," but has repeatedly run into obstacles with licensing.
