How to help the homeless in the US play music and listen to it for free
Google Play Music has officially announced it will be offering a new way to listen to the local music scene in the United States.
As of April 21, the service will be rolling out in the most populated areas of the country, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and Miami, and Google will offer local stations for $1.99 per month.
The stations will offer access to a wide variety of local music, ranging from artists and local music festivals, to local events and local podcasts.
“We know that music can make a difference for people and families in the hardest of times,” said Josh Goldman, Vice President of Product Management for Google Play.
“We are excited to partner with the community to bring music to people in need through Google Play Radio, a new service that helps listeners in need with local music.”
Google Play Radio will be available in the U.S. in April.
It will feature the likes of artists such as Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Beyoncé, local radio stations like WLWD and KPFA, local podcasts, and news and weather stations.
Google Play has also made available a list of podcasts to download for free.
In addition to the free stations, Google Play will also offer local radio services in the form of podcasts and radio-only podcasts.
Google will also create local podcasts from popular artists and popular bands, including The Roots, Phish, Pearl Jam and Coldplay.
“The local music community is a vital part of the fabric of our community, and we’re thrilled to partner in helping them reach their goals and expand their repertoire,” Goldman said.
“The music and radio communities have always been the heart and soul of our company, and it’s exciting to be able to make that connection and help people who are not connected with that community reach a wider audience.”
