INTERNET GIANT Google has finally brought its music download service to the UK.

Access to its downloads can be found through the Google Play app store, and its Music tab. We've already popped in and had a look around. Albums range from £5.99 for One Direction's Take Me Home to £11.49 for the deluxe version of the Rolling Stones' Grrr!.

Individual tracks on Grrr!, are priced at £1.49. These include songs that you probably don't own already like (I can't get no) Satisfaction, and Paint It Black.

One Direction, whose members must not have kids to support, prices its music lower, and you can pick up their hits for as little as 79p, or as we like to call it "comparable with Itunes and Amazon".

Tony Bennett's Viva Duets tracks come in at 79p each, while songs by Dappy and the Swedish House Mafia will cost you £1.29. Psy's Gangnam Style, a catchy song that you might have heard of, costs £1.29 also.

Google has updated its Music app, which comes as standard as the music player on some Android devices.

A new feature here includes the ability to create instant mixes, while clicking on an artists name brings up the option to shop for more of their content. µ
