Google To Merge YouTube “Red” With Google Play Music:- As per the media reports, to give way to a new service, YouTube’s paid subscription service ‘Red’ will be eventually merged with Google Play Music.
YouTube’s Global Head of Music, Lyor Cohen was quoted as saying that, Google is planning to merge YouTube ‘Red’. The YouTube Red is available in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Korea and Mexico and Google Play Music to create a new streaming service.
For a while, the talks of the merger were in the industry and recently picked up pace, after the company merged the teams working on the two streaming services.
Right now, Google’s streaming services YouTube Music, Google Play Music and YouTube ‘Red’ are confusingly connected.
When asked about why YouTube Red is not more popular with music users, Cohen was quoted as saying, “The important thing is combining YouTube Red and Google Play Music, and having one offering.”
“The users will be notified of any change,” said Google. The YouTube ‘Red’ offers an enhanced experience by removing advertisements on videos and lets you save them offline.
Google Play Music is Google’s version of Spotify, while YouTube Music is a free app open to everybody.
