Google brings its Music Beta to iOS devices via Safari browser

Google's cloud-based music service Music Beta is now available on iOS devices as well. The app can be accessed via Safari browser at The advent of Google Music Beta on iOS gives Google a chance to impress the iOS users before Apple launches its own cloud-based music service called iCloud. Google made the announcement via its Twitter feed.

The Music Beta runs music in the background even when you exit Safari. Users can swipe left and right to shuffle between categories such as Artists, Albums and Songs etc. The features can be controlled by the iOS music controls as well. However, it's pertinent to mention here Google Music is still in Beta phase and is free to invited guests for the time being. Check out our previous coverage on Google Music Beta here.

It's learnt that the service had been rumored for months before the official launch and is Google's first attempt to compete with Amazon's Cloud Player and Apple's upcoming iCloud. It is being speculated that Google will soon come up with a dedicated iOS App store app to popularise its music service among the iOS users.
