It’s finally happening.
Google Play Music is being absorbed by YouTube’s new service, YouTube Music. Oh, man, this makes me happy. The combination of Youtube’s insanely huge video content library with Google Play Music will make for a offering no one else can touch. It’s impossible to say how well it will be adopted, but to me, having videos AND music in one service is a no brainer.
Will current Google Play Music users be able to transition seamlessly to YouTube Music? Well, that’s the goal as Google plans to phase out Google Play Music completely. “Red” members will no longer have to bounce between the two services. Spotify take note – you’re about to lose subscribers.
