Google might combine YouTube Music and Google Play Music
Google acquired YouTube more than a decade ago, but the internet search giant launched YouTube Music back in 2015. However, Google Play Music and YouTube Music are somehow redundant. Now it looks like the two might soon come together, and the resulting product will be developed and maintained by the two teams currently working separately.
The Verge writes that "According to several sources familiar with the change, the product teams working on YouTube Music and Google Play Music are being combined into a single unit." The same source also reveals that the users should not expect any noticeable changes for the time being, as both apps will continue on their separate ways for a while.
However, it looks like "a single unified music app from Google" is in the cards and everything is only a matter of time. A Google spokesperson confirmed the move but also ensured the users that the company would provide "plenty of notice before any changes are made."
