South Africa: here’s how to get four free months on Google Play Music

Google Play Music now offers a four-month free trial for those subscribing to its service.

The streaming music platform headed by the Mountain View company houses over 30-million tracks, and allows users to upload their own to the cloud, usually comes with a two- or three-month trial. But Google’s seemingly feeling a bit generous this week.

First spotted by Android Police last week, the deal is still ongoing at the time of writing.

And yes, it’s available to those within South Africa’s borders too.

Interestingly, it seems that the deal comes in tow with South Africa’s addition to Google Play promo codes supported list. It’s now the only African country on the list.

Once the trial ends, a subscription to Google Play Music will cost users R60 per month.

Here’s how to get it

If you’re interested in checking out the extended trial, users can access it here.

You’ll need to be logged in to your preferred Google account, and you’ll also need your credit card at the ready. Hit “Subscribe” and you’ll be taken to a sign up box. Hit “Add credit or debit card”, add your details to the relevant boxes (Google will also ask for a billing address) and hit “Save”.

At this point, Google will create a “Google Payments” account as well, so you might want to read through the privacy documents and terms of service.

Once you’re set, you should be taken to Google Play Music’s home page.

Remember though, if you’re only in this for the trial itself, be sure to deactivate your subscription before Google Play Music debits R60 from your account automatically after the fourth month.

Google Play Music is also available on Android and iOS.
