Tim Cook isn’t the only one putting on a show at the D11 conference this week. Sundar Pichai, one of the top dogs on Google’s Android team, dropped word during an interview with Walt Mossburg that we can expect official support for Google Play Music All Access to reach iOS “in a few weeks.”

Google’s lack of an official app for their cloud music service has been curious to say the least.

    Even if Apple launches its own music service, I will probably keep Google Music. I don’t care much for all access, I just want to be able to play the music I already have in the cloud.

          True, but $25/year aint bad, and it doesn’t matter where you got your music from–plus the music quality will be upgraded in most cases. And all the music you purchase on iTunes is available to stream for free, too.
