    Greetings from the Google I/O press line! I think I know why they call it "press." We're getting ready to file in...
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 3:21:40 PM
    We heard the nerd cry from the floor down below (non-press) shouting their excitement. Rachel King says, "It's like Braveheart."
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 3:30:28 PM
    And we're in!
  • Tony 5/15/2013 3:30:37 PM
    I think we will see some huge changes to google maps,
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:47:55 PM
    There is a never ending list of related tracks. And can look ahead to what is coming next and if you don't like it, swipe away.

    This is radio without rules. Lean back or interact. You can also move songs up so you listen to it sooner.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:48:30 PM
    Google's new music subscription is also interesting because it's challenging Pandora and other apps that have in part made Android's app store so successful.
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/15/2013 4:48:48 PM
    I wonder how much of the Knowledge Graph fuels All Access
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:48:56 PM
    You are blending your own catalog with thousands of other tracks available in All Access. That is pretty cool.
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:49:05 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:49:14 PM
    Moving songs up is really cool because that's something you can't do on Pandora, Slacker, and the rest.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:49:18 PM
    My library now includes my own music and music that discovered through All Access.
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:49:49 PM

    Listen Now

  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:50:07 PM
    Listen Now can go right to a radio station or play list already created to make it easier to just get to music.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:50:09 PM
    I'm wondering now if this music recommendation engine also learns from the rest of your Google interactions: artists you search for on Google, bands you mention on Google+, etc. I'm not sure if I think that's cool or not, like a Google Now for music.
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:50:41 PM

    All Access on web

  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:50:54 PM
    Can enjoy All Access on all Android devices.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:51:13 PM
    The $10 per month price is pretty typical, so that's cool. U.S. launch first.
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:51:25 PM
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:51:31 PM
    All Access is $9.99 a month but you also get a 30 day free trial. And it's launching today in US and additional countries soon. If you start by June 30 you get it for $7.99 a month.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:51:48 PM
    Hmm that sounds pretty cool. I am cheap but I may even have to sign up for this.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:52:06 PM
    So that's how they're doing it. $8 per month is cheaper than Pandora by $2 per month.

  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:52:14 PM
    Hugo is back on stage. And there is a device announcement!
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:52:39 PM
    This is not a giveaway he says. But he is gearing up to tell us about a new product.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:53:09 PM
    Hugo is showing off the Samsung GS4. And will show off a new home screen.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:53:16 PM
    I'm not sure why we're clapping at the image of his home screen...Am I missing something?
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:53:40 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:53:57 PM
    Oooh, it's the Samsung Galaxy S4 with the pure Android Nexus skin.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:54:04 PM
    This is a Samsung Galaxy S4 running the Nexus Android.
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:54:10 PM
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:54:37 PM
    Unlocked version will be available on AT&T And T-Mo LTE support 16GB Bootloader unlocked and will get updates when tehey come up.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:54:44 PM
    Samsung must be beaming from ear-to-ear. I think this is going to sell like hotcakes. $649 on Google Play.
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:54:51 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/15/2013 4:55:01 PM
    You can buy it June 26, by the way.
  • James Martin 5/15/2013 4:55:44 PM
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:55:48 PM
    Sundar is now coming back on stage and looks like we are now moving onto Chrome.
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/15/2013 4:55:51 PM
    Goofing and Memes get a shout-out in Chrome preview video
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/15/2013 4:56:08 PM
    So I guess this means no updated Nexus 4 or Nexus 7 device. Bummer.
  • stephen.shankland 5/15/2013 4:56:37 PM
    We're seeing a Google Chrome ad now. Unfortunately, it's the one I hate the most with the butchered version of Beethoven's 5th symphony. And now Sundar Pichai is back on stage.
