Very accessible to use. A great way to store all of your music in the cloud for FREE. Google will store up to 50,000 songs for cloud storage. From here
we can play the music by streaming and even download them. Now they offer FREE ad-supported radio stations. Works very well and has now replaced Songza on my device.

I was happy to see that the latest version (build 18.104.22.1687) added quite a lot of accessibility. The app is definitely now much easier to use.
I am still not able to delete things from "my library" but perhaps this is a feature.
As Victor has mentioned above. This new version has greatly improved on VoiceOver accessibility! Very nicely done! It is about 90% accessible which is a huge improvements from the previous versions.

What's New in Version 2.0.3828
We've heard you all loud and clear, and now Google Play Music has an official iPad app!
Both the iPhone and iPad apps also have new Material Design UI:
- Beautiful new artist and album pages with descriptions
- Immersive Now Playing experience
- Small visual improvements throughout
Finally, we've made a lot of improvements to streaming and automatic caching to make music playback faster and more reliable.
I've been looking for a good online radio streaming app for a while now. I've tried Pandora, spotify, Rdio, and even Slacker, but I ran in to Voiceover problems with all of them. Within 5 minutes of playing with Play Music, I was impressed by how well everything's labeled. I like that you can turn off explicit content, which was my major complaint with Spotify, and that you can skip as many songs as you want, which was a major grievance with Pandora. As of now, I'm willing to pay the monthly subscription fee for full benefits.

The new version of Google Play Music, 3.8.113, among other things introduces accessibility custom actions. You will notice that this reduces the number of swipes between various elements on the screen.
