A new feature has popped up in Google Play Music, the ability to send a subscription to someone as a gift. With this, you are able to pay for your friends and family to use the service. Currently, Google is offering 1, 3 and 6 months options. The receiver of the gift subscription will gain all of the features that any paid member would, like the ability to save music for offline listening, the lack of ads and more, without having to pay for it.
Pricing for the 1, 3 and 6 month subscriptions sits at $9.99, $29.97 and $59.94 respectively. We are still waiting for Google to roll out the family plan that was previously announced, but it's still great to see Google continue to expand options for getting users up and running with Play Music.
