For a few months, we know that Google is working on a new music streaming service linked to the YouTube platform , which would come under the name of YouTube Remix. At first, everything pointed to the new service would see the light in March, although for some reason we still do not know, the Mountain View decided to delay its launch without defining a specific date.
Today, however, we get new information about the future Google music platform: as assured to Droid-Life a source close to the company, YouTube Remix will arrive this year, and will mean the death of the Google Play Music platform
The first clues about this new musical service emerged at the beginning of the year, and it was pointed out that Google intended to focus its efforts on the music industry with a platform designed to compete with Spotify and Apple Music . Later, we learned that this service would be linked to YouTube, and in March the company itself dropped the existence of the new platform.
Now, a source close to Google indicates that YouTube Remix will be a platform based on recommendations, smart playlists, and music that will appear depending on the place where the user is or the time of day. Functions that, on the other hand, we already find in Google Play Music today.
Therefore, to prevent both platforms from coexisting and creating confusion among users, Google would be willing to end Play Music once and for all, forcing the adoption of YouTube Remix later this year. Therefore, it is possible that all those users of Play Music have the possibility to make the leap to the new platform, without losing their playlists, saved songs and subscriptions, for facilitate the transition from one service to another.
At the moment, this is all we know about the rival for Spotify and Apple Music created by Google, whose launch is scheduled for this year. Google has already pointed out on occasion that they are doing a great investment in the new project, combining the best of Play Music with the huge and deep YouTube catalog , so I’m afraid that once YouTube Remix comes into our lives, we will not miss the old Google music platform too much.
