  • YouTube Remix Streaming Service Will Reportedly Replace Google Play Music

Google also hosts YouTube fan fests and has a massive creator ecosystem interacting with the platform unlike Play Music which just piggybacks off YouTube's and Android's popularity. It'd be a forced end, meaning all Play Music users will have to give up the service. Well, an upcoming service called YouTube Remix.

Despite initial concerns from major music labels, we heard late a year ago that Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group had joined Warner Music Group in signing deals for the upcoming service after Google assuage their fears over copyright issues on YouTube. There were some questions regarding the future of Google Play Music, since it didn't seem likely that Google would need two streaming music services out there.

The death knell for Google Play Music has been quietly ringing ever since reports surfaced that Google has been working on a new music streaming service that will give a Spotify-like experience.

So what's replacing Play Music?

There's now no information as to how Google plans to completely shut down Play Music, but a company spokesperson said this: "We've previously announced the combination of the YouTube Music and Google Play product teams - music is very important to Google so it's critical we have one offering that meets the needs of consumers and artists". However, it didn't happen and now the same name has made the headlines once again. The new service is also expected to include YouTube features, like video streaming. As per their statements, "the best of Google Play Music's context server" and YouTube's, "breadth and depth of catalogue". YouTube's Global head has come up further and said that they are late with their service which is already due. The new free version will now allow users listen on-demand without being restricted to shuffle songs on any of the 15 personalized discovery playlists.

"Nothing will change for users today and we'll provide plenty of notice before any changes are made", a YouTube spokesperson said. The new music platform that Google will be launching is supposedly meant to go against Spotify, so killing off the current Music app makes sense.

The existence of YouTube Remix was first reported back in December, when it was initially thought to launch in March 2018 during the SXSW festival. This is rumoured to be happening before the end of 2018, although there has yet to be any official word from YouTube.
