INTERNET GIANT Google has brought its Play Radio to the UK and is offering puntrs unlimited music for £9.99 a month.

The firm announced this through a promoted tweet and a link. Google expects users to click a button, hand over some cash payment details and settle back into a pair of headphones.

"Google Play Music makes it easy to discover, play, store and share the music you love on Android and the web," it said. "With our new All Access service, you can now stream tracks available in Google Play alongside your existing music library."

For your money you get access to millions of songs with an ad-free listening experience. Google said that users can create personalised stations based on the songs and artists that they like, and enjoy skip-free radio and recommendations based on their previous listening habits.

Google's Play Music All Access can be enjoyed for 30 days for free, but you will have to hand over your payment details if you want a taste.

Google has alerted users of its Play Music subscription service to the existence of Glass, its wearable web browsing gadget.

"With the launch of Google Play Music on Google Glass, we've secured VIP invitations for All Access customers to join the Glass Explorer [Programme]," said the firm in an email sent to subscribers and seen by Techradar.

"Interested in rocking out while exploring with Glass? Sign up to receive your invitation below!"

Thus far Google has pitched the Glass mailout and offer only at punters in the US. µ
