If you pre-order the new Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P, Google is tossing in some freebies.
All Nexus 5X and 6P orders include a free 90-day subscription to Google Play Music, but if you pre-order, they are also handing out a $50 Google Play credit.
The devices aren’t live yet on Google Play, so stay tuned.
The day has finally arrived! It’s time for Google’s big Nexus and Chromecast event, where we should be officially introduced to the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, a new Chromecast, and a whole bunch more.
We are in San Francisco to attend the event, which kicks off at 9AM Pacific (12PM Eastern).
Because this is such a big event, we will have a live blog of the happenings for you below, but Google also has plans to stream the event live for the world to see. Once we have a direct feed for that, we will embed it below along with the live blog.

The lists could be workout jams, those made to help you wake up happier, something to boost your energy, or hits that will help you wind down for the night. Google has a “team of music experts” who craft each station song by song, “so you don’t have to.”
The free streaming service is available today on the web at music.google.com and will rollout to Android and iOS later this week. (more…)
Google is rolling out a big UI update to Play Music for desktop users today, bringing a ton of Material Design tweaks inside. Once your UI gets updated, you will see a very well laid out interface, complete with animated transitions and slide out navigation bar on the lefthand side. (more…)
As a quick note to any diehard Metallica fans we may have here, the band’s entire discography is now live on Google Play. After having zero presence on Google’s servers, with thanks likely to strict distribution agreements, headbangers can now get down to some all-time classic Master of Puppets jams. (more…)
During last year’s Google I/O, when the company announced and displayed Material Design for the first time, they previewed a non-existent music app that looks nothing like today’s Google Play Music.
