The YouTube Music and Google Play Music Teams combined by Google

Google now has two music streaming apps, Youtube Music and Google Play Music with nearly identical features. It can be a little bit confusing to decide which music streaming service is best for you. Luckily, Google is probably aware of that, as the biggest search engine on Earth today announces that it has decided to combine its Youtube Music and Google Play Music teams into one unit to offer what Google says “the best possible product for users, artists and partners”.


However, according to Google, two apps remains independent at the moment. In reality, Google previously merged the business development teams of Youtube Music and Google Play Music into one in 2016. Today’s move will make label and artist negotiation much easier for Google in the coming months.

Google Play Music is undoubtedly the more popular service than its sibling in the market. Basically, Google Play Music allows you to upload and listen up to 50.000 songs from your library for free. Besides, you can purchase tracks for your music library from Google Play. Noticeably, Google Play Music uses machine learning to find out what songs you like, thereby offering the best personalized-recommendations wherever you are and whenever you want.

Google released Youtube Music back in 2015 that allows you to customize music to your liking. Earlier this week, Google opened up live mobile video streaming for Youtubers with more than 10.000 subscribers.

Today’s move to combine Youtube Music and Google Play Music serves as Google’s strategic plan to compete directly with Apple Music and Spotify. Last year, Google announced Pixel and Pixel XL, the first smartphone carrying Google’s branding. The two handsets come with some exclusive features such as Pixel Launcher and Google Assistant, Google’s new virtual helper. Both devices are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processors along with 4GB of RAM and 32/128GB of internal storage.
