T-Mobile Adds Video From Spotify, Tidal, NBC, Univision, Noggin, And More To Binge On Service

Despite some technical objections, T-Mobile's unlimited video streaming option Binge On has proven to be a hit with the company's customers, just as the audio equivalent Music Freedom was before it. With these two programs, T-Mobile customers aren't charged against their data caps for watching or listening on participating services. Today Binge On expands to a few new services, and existing Music Freedom services are adding at least some video content to Binge On.

[Deal Alert] Jimmy Fallon's Comedy Music Album 'Blow Your Pants Off (Deluxe Version)' Free On Google Play (Probs US Only)

Jimmy Fallon is a funny man. He makes people laugh in a host of different ways. He plays hilarious games with celebrities, makes people look silly in street interviews, and sometimes, he invites famous musicians on his show to make ridiculous music. Every once in awhile he even sings himself!

Aussie Telco Optus To Allow Prepaid Customers To Stream Music For Free

There's some great news if you're an Optus customer. Starting from May 2nd, they will be zero-rating a number of online streaming services for their prepaid customers, allowing them to listen to as much music as they want without racking up a heavy data bill.

Optus is making this available to new and current customers on My Prepaid Ultimate, My Prepaid Daily Plus, and other selected plans. Virtually all the big streaming names are present: Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, and the Gold Coast-based Guvera. It's not strictly limited to music either, as iHeartRadio is also included.

Noticeably absent is Apple Music. According to Gizmodo Australia, this is possibly because Cupertino already has a strong partnership with rival network Telstra.

Google Play Music's Search Bar Might Soon Look Very Different

Google is on a crusade against search bars. Or so it seems to us at least. Late last year, the Play Store received an interface revamp that dumped the green search bar in favor of an overlaid grey bar with a hamburger menu, a voice search icon, and the words Google Play in grey that disappeared as soon as you started typing. Then a few days ago, it changed Play Books' search bar to a look that sits somewhere in the middle, with the blue bar switching into the grey one when you tapped to search.

Now it's Play Music's turn.

[Deal Alert] Duran Duran's Latest Album 'Paper Gods' Free On Google Play Music (US Only)

Duran Duran released their first album in 1981. That's before I was born, and yet, some of their music is still popular and relevant today. Hits like, 'Hungry Like The Wolf' and 'Rio' (full disclosure: those are the only two Duran Duran songs I know off the top of my head) still get air time on oldies stations and Rock Band games.

35 years later they're still making new music. I had no idea they were even still together. Their latest album, Paper Gods, was just released in September last year and today you can get it free on Google Play Music.

The People Who Made The 'Monotune' Android Commercial Recorded An Entire Album, And It's Free On Google Play Music

Google's "Monotune" Android commercial is pretty cool. The musical analogy is interesting (and it ties in well with Google's "be together, not the same" marketing campaign), but there's an impressive technical aspect to it as well. The producers modified a grand piano so that all 88 keys were turned to middle C, so that pianist Ji-Yong Kim could really play the music using a single note. As cool as that commercial is, they might have taken things a bit too far with the latest promotion: an entire album of music played with that one-note piano.

[Deal Alert] The Footloose 2011 Soundtrack Is Free On Google Play, Plus Juno, Dazed & Confused, The Crow, And The Fault In Our Stars For 99¢ Each

I'm still wondering who was really asking for a remake of the original Footloose, but if you enjoyed the 2011 version, the soundtrack probably had a lot to do with it. The movie's licensed music, most of which isn't available in single tracks, is now free on the Google Play Store. As with most of these free albums, your mileage may vary - it's a free download in the United States, but may not be available elsewhere. The 2014 album Kuntry Livin' from rap/country fusion group Big Smo (cringe) is also free today.
