When Google finally launches its rumored YouTube Remix platform this year, one of its other services will be put to rest. According to a reliable source, Google Play Music will be replaced as Google’s go-to music service with YouTube Remix. Not only that, but users will be forced off of Play Music by the end of 2018 and onto Remix. Googles foremost music streaming service, Google Play Music, is in bit of a mess right now. Although the service provides its users with a gigantic music library, it also competes with YouTube Music, a paid app that streams music from YouTube and YouTube Red, an advertisement-free service which streams music from YouTube.
Back in December last year, reports had surfaced online about YouTube's plan to unveil a paid music streaming service. Dubbed Remix, this service is said to take on the likes of Spotify and Apple Music. A new report from Droid-Life states that Google has recently cleared out copyright issues over streaming music on YouTube and plans to launch YouTube Remix within the next few months. As per the report, YouTube Remix will be packed with smarter playlist recommendations, and certain time and location based song suggestions. Essentially, this service aims at creating a unified platform that includes the free version of YouTube, YouTube Red, and Remix. A forced switch from Play Music to Remix is coming before the end of this year.
Fast forward to this March where YouTube’s global head of music, Lyor Cohen, confirmed some details of YouTube Remix during a chat at SXSW. He didn’t fully dive into pricing or launch, but did acknowledge that it would provide “the best of Google Play Music’s context server” and YouTube’s, “breadth and depth of catalogue.” He continued by saying that it’s OK that they are “late” with this launch because they are “making an enormous investment to launch a product that you will be proud of.” While it makes sense for Google to combine Google Play Musics vast library of songs and YouTubes vast catalog of music videos, it remains to be seen how the company would combine the two most powerful resources it has and turn it into something that would be loved by the users and prove to be a tough competition in the market.
A recent report has claimed that, for the first time, digital sales have contributed to the majority of revenue in the global music industry having soared a record 8.1 percent last year. In 2017, digital music sales grossed 54 percent of the entire revenue of the industry, as per IFPI's annual report. With streaming music on the upswing lately (it grew by $2.1 billion year-on-year globally to reach $7.4 billion in 2017), and rivals like Deezer and Spotify introducing new features to keep things fresh for fans, it’s high time Google stepped up its game. Hopefully, YouTube Remix will see it gain some ground in the coming months.
So, Mi Fans this is all about the Youtube Remix getting replaced with Google Play Music. If you need more information regarding this product please click on the source links given below. Let me know your thoughts and comments about this thread in the comment section below.
