Chromecast’s first birthday sparks 90 free days of Google Play Music All Access offer


It’s been a year since the launch of Chromecast, which has taken the world by storm as 2013’s top gadget and one of the hottest selling items on Amazon and Google Play. To celebrate all of that goodness Google has decided to give users a nice treat for being part of the early wave of consumers to get in on the fun.

They’re offering 90 days of Google Play Music All Access, a premium subscription that gives you unlimited access to a library of over 20 million tracks. You can easily add these tracks to your library and playlists or listen to radio stations based on them. They won’t be there for you once your subscription ends, though you obviously have the option of paying for each individual track or album you want to keep should you decide to give up your membership.

The offer is good for anyone who has bought a Chromecast, and is available from today’s date all the way through September 30th. You’ll have to fork up about $10 per month at the conclusion of the offer if you want to keep on listening, though that’s not a terribly high price to pay for unlimited access to such a big library of music. Of course, the offer doesn’t apply to you if you already have a subscription so feel free to continue enjoying it as you always have. You can head right here to get started.

    Doesn’t count for us current all access subscribers.

      I know, boo =/

  • remister

    for now…

  • Daniel

    The title says 90 free months. So is that what you guys do to get reads now?

  • ThomasMoneyhon

    saw that 90 free months and got excited. :(

  • BmoreHuntr

    Came here for 90 months. Left for 90 days.

  • raneman

    90 free months? wow. That’s like 7.5 years of free google music.

  • Keith Thibodeaux

    When I try to sign up it says I must be a “new user” so I guess it does not apply to all.

    • Ronnie Ron Weez

      Have you been subscribed to all access before and canceled or are you still currently subscribed?

  • Jason Farrell

    Still wishing for a “Family All Access” (like Netflix profiles).

    • No_Nickname90

      I don’t know about that one. Mainly because Google Music allows you to upload your songs. With the people on my Netflix, if I did the same with Google Music, it’ll be my mom, brother, best friend, his sister and my music all in there. Also Netflix only allows 2 streaming devices unless you pay for 4. I’d be pissed if I get on the bus and can’t listen to music because there are already 2 people streaming.

      You’d need different profiles to help with the recommended songs. I needz my recommended songs. LoL!!. Also, what about the maximum amount of songs uploaded? Will that be a 20,000 shared?

      I may be over-thinking it, but I prefer to keep my music to myself.

  • toomuchgame441

    Dammit… Where was this offer 3 months ago!?

    • guitarist5122

      Maybe cancel your subscription and try the 90 days? Wouldn’t hurt anything. I have the grandfathered price of $8 a month so I’m not going to try that myself.

      • toomuchgame441

        Definitely worth a try, but I would hate to lose all the music and playlists I made from Play Music

        • Andr3ww

          Don’t do it!

  • Ronnie Ron Weez

    So does anyone know if this applies to anyone who has EVER been subscribed to All access. Because I had it for 2 months and canceled it earlier this month. Would I still be able to get this offer ?

    • lauriedesautels

      I have the same ?

    • np6s4x

      nope, if you have done a all access trial previously you can’t do this. Though of course if you have multiple google accounts… ;)

  • bigdawgx

    From today to September 30th is NOT 90 days…………..

    • Ronnie Ron Weez

      I think they meant that’s how long you can get the offer before the actual offer expires.


    Can you buy the chromecast anywhere?

    • mcl630

      It’s available on the Play Store and on Amazon.

      • Montisaquadeis

        and at big box stores like Best Buy

      • http://ENERDROID.COM IAN

        I know where I can buy the chromecast but is this deal limited to playstore? If I run down and pick it up at best buy or target or oder from amazin can I get the 90days?

        • Montisaquadeis

          Applies fine to the one I bought from Amazon so I don’t think it matters were you got it

  • No_Nickname90

    How about if you have a Chromecast your monthly payments are $0 for 90 days? That’s always an option that they could do. =.3

    • guitarist5122

      If only

  • CaffinatedOne

    “This offer is not available for anyone who has previously subscribed to All Access, the unlimited music service from Google Play, either on a paid or free trial basis.”

    So, if you’ve tried it before, you’re out of luck.

  • lauriedesautels

    Ok it worked using my husband’s gmail. Unfortunately, it requires starting all over again and a payment method but I had the all access on our Chromecast and cancelled a few months ago. I logged in as him and it worked!

  • Jay Holm

    Chromecast has been around for a full year?

  • Tyler Fox

    Yeah this actually has a lot of people pissed off, this is only for NEW users, what about all the loyal fans that were with chromecast since day one? Where is our free music? I think we should get something in return.

  • bbaker505

    When I try to redeem this it only says 30 days. Anybody else have this trouble? I’m doing it through the Chromecast app and my tv.
