Android users, if you have been used to listening music on the Google Play Music application, then this might disappoint you. A soon to be launched YouTube Remix will most likely replace your music playing application by the end of 2018 if reports are to be believed. YouTube Remix is rumoured to be launched in the latter part of this year. And Google's default music player will have to give way to this one.
In December 2017, there were reports about YouTube planning to come up with a music streaming service for the users. Called the Remix, it would be very similar to Apple Music and Spotify. And if the new reports are to be believed then Google has cleared all copyright issues regarding music streaming on YouTube, so the YouTube Remix will finally be launched in the next few months.
The YouTube Remix service will make playlist recommendations, even based on time and location settings! But there will soon be a switch from Google Play Music to YouTube Remix although there won't be much change for the users the later company says. In their statement to Droid-Life they said, "We've previously announced the combination of the YouTube Music and Google Play product teams - music is very important to Google so it's critical we have one offering that meets the needs of consumers and artists. Nothing will change for users today and we'll provide plenty of notice before any changes are made." With a combination that combines music from YouTube into Google's player, YouTube remix is something to be looked forward to. Let us wait till we have more announcements about the same.
