Google makes a big move in the music biz, launching a free, ad-supported version of its streaming service, Google Play Music.

The new service will allow users to listen to access radio stations inspired by an artist, album, song, genre, or general mood. In all, the massive library boasts 30 million songs.

The playlists were curated by "a team of music experts," which includes employees of Songza, a streaming and recommendation service Google acquired in 2014.

It's currently available online and as an app for iOS and Android devices.

Furthermore, users can upload, store and play up to 50,000 songs from their own collection for free using Google Play.
