YouTube Red Google Play Music merger confirmed by You Tube exec

Google Play Music and YouTube Red are to merge, giving rise to a new streaming service, announced Lyor Cohen, YouTube's head of music at the New Music Seminar in NY. Google Play Music and YouTube Red are two such apps and today YouTube's head of music confirmed they will be merging in the future.

YouTube music ecosystem is quite intricate and that's why the company has finally made a decision to uncomplicate things and bring about a simple solution. Furthermore, existing Google Play Music endorsers additionally get a free YouTube Red participation. The company faced the same dilemma with YouTube Red and Google Play Music. YouTube Red was first launched to disable ads on YouTube videos, but then also became a music streaming service in its own right when Google built-in the ability to stream music directly from music videos on YouTube.

In fact, it was just this February that the individual teams behind Play Music and YouTube were combined, which led many to speculate a merger of the services too could be on the cards.

According to The Verge, Cohen talked about aligning the music elements of Google Play and YouTube after being asked why the latter's subscription service Red isn't more popular with music fans.

Outrage as Trump bans 'disruptive' trans soldiers
The US has, in the past three months, been witnessing a rise in differences over the issue of transgender rights in the country. In a reply to this, Trump shook his head, pointed at a student and responded, "You go ahead, she's very rude".

Google didn't confirm or deny the merger, but the company did say users would be given notice well before any big changes occur.

Cohen explained the two services need to be integrated with each other in order to educate customers and attract new subscribers. But Google also runs a standalone YouTube Music app that streams music videos and can be used for free with ads.

It has always been on the wishlist of many fans and it seems Google has finally heard your wishes. Part of the YouTube Red subscription is also a different YouTube Music experience.
