Google is currently working on bringing its music app to devices running Apple's iOS, Engadget reports. The music subscription platform, launched last May, is Google's alternative to popular music streaming sites such as Spotify and Deezer.

Users of iOS devices can already access the service through a mobile web browser, but the native app is currently offered only for Android. According to a source close to the Mountain View firm, a version of Google Play Music for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is being tested internally and could arrive "later this month."

The service allows users to store 20,000 songs in the cloud in order to listen to them from anywhere. The "All Access" offer, at $9.99 per month, gives subscribers unlimited streaming from a catalogue of millions of songs. The app also gives users music recommendations based on their listening history and creates smart playlists based on a selected artist or genre.

Google Play Music is currently available for free for the Android OS.
