Google wants to own the supremacy among other music streaming services, so it decided to run a few changes. These strategies should improve Google’s fight against Spotify and Apple Music and maybe help its services become even more popular. Therefore, get ready to say goodbye to YouTube Red and Google Play Music. The services won’t go anywhere, they will just get new names.
Google still needs to improve its game against Spotify and Apple Music
Google has quite a solid music streaming service that many people enjoy using. However, it is quite far from overcoming the music titans Spotify and Apple Music. As a result, the platform decided to come up with a brand new version of YouTube Red. The service will also abandon its name in favor of a more sonorous one, YouTube Premium.
According to the reports, this new service won’t be a lot different than YouTube Red. In terms of features and functionality, it will be more or less the same. However, it will add some extra items that should improve the experience of the users. For instance, the app will make custom playlists for each user based on their listening history.
YouTube Premium replaced both YouTube Red and Google Play Music
YouTube Premium isn’t a replacement only for YouTube Red. It turns out it will take the place of Google Play Music as well. Also, the price will more likely increase from $10 to $12. This is an attempt to preserve the well-functioning of the service, but also keep it away from ads.
If you used Google Play Music instead of YouTube Red, you won’t have to worry. The company wasn’t too happy about having two music platforms, so it decided it was time to bring the subscribers of the two together. The good thing about YouTube Premium is the fact that it reunites all the features you saved in any of the two services.
The release of YouTube Premium should come soon enough, so get ready for some brand new options on the new platform.
