When Google launched Google Play Music “All Access,” its music streaming service in May, it didn’t come as a surprise when it didn’t release an app for the iPhone and iPad as it is still to release an app for Google Music that was launched in 2011.
It is still a mystery why Google launched a web app for Google Music rather than a native app.
Google’s Head of Android, Sundar Pichai had announced at the D11 Conference that they will be releasing an iOS app for Google Play Music and its music streaming service Google Play Music All Access in about a month’s time. Then we heard it could be released in October. But October has come and gone, and we are already in the middle of November, but there is still no sign of the app.
If you have been patiently waiting for the app then we have some good news, as @evleaks who has an excellent track record when it comes to product leaks, has just tweeted that the release is imminent.
Launch imminent for native Google Music iOS app. First reported: http://t.co/q49KTHAVzP

So it looks like Google Music app will finally arrive this month.
I think Google should have released the official app much before iTunes Radio was launched.
