Google gives Kiwis the perfect beats for any occasion

Let’s all agree — mornings can be tough. Unless you’re an early riser who thrives on being up and about before dawn, it can take a little motivation just to get out of bed.

The right music can easily lift your mood and help you shift up a gear. From today, if you’re a Google Play Music subscriber in New Zealand you’ll find it easier to get the perfect sounds for every moment of your day.

Whether you’re hitting the treadmill, studying for upcoming exams or unwinding after a long day at the office, when you open the app you’ll be able to select a station for a particular mood or activity.

Stations have been specially developed to fit the New Zealand lifestyle, including the classic Kiwi BBQ and Taking a Hike in our great outdoors. There are also specially commissioned stations of great Kiwi artists, from the Flying Nun Experience to Women of Aotearoa.

You can also download these stations to listen to when you’re offline, see what song is up next, and add, remove or rearrange them to suit your taste. Or you can start a new station based on any song in the mix. You can also search for a particular station you like or activity you want to find music for.
