YouTube Red to be merged with Google Play Music

Internet search giant Google has confirmed that it is working on a plan to merge its YouTube Red service with Google Play Music in order to create a new sleek and streamlined service.

Speaking at a recently-held panel session for the New Music Seminar conference in New York, Google Music chief Lyor Cohen said that the company needed to merge the two services to attract new subscribers.

Making the announcement, Cohen said, “Music is very important to Google and we're evaluating how to bring together our music offerings to deliver the best possible product for our users … important thing is combining YouTube Red and Google Play Music, and having one offering.”

The tech giant stressed tat users would be provided with plenty of notices before making any major changes.

YouTube Red, which is available in the United States, is a subscription service that offers advert-free music as well as video streaming.

Google has revealed its plans to bring the two services together in light of increasing competition from rivals like Apple Music, Amazon Prime Music and Spotify.
