Google launches Play Music in Canada, brings streaming across the 49th

Google Play is launching its streaming Music service in Canada, opening up a new paid service for frothing fans north of the 49th parallel.

Play Music will allow users to access 25,000,000 songs for a cost of $9.99 per month – a Netflix for audio. The service already exists in the United States, Mexico, and Europe.

(Those who sign up before June 30, 2014 will only pay $7.99.)
