Instead of making YouTube a convenient platform for both users and content creators, Google is going to build on its basis a streaming music service. And what about Google Play, some will ask. And it will be closed by the end of 2018. The website Droid-life reports with reference to reliable sources.
It seems that YouTube has a little podzavis in its development. It is still difficult to forgive the service to disable the function of creating a directory of users’ subscriptions according to its interests. In the trends constantly “haypanuty” content on the tragedies of top bloggers is constantly circulating, there are periodically bursting some Arabian dance songs, and the transition to a single updated design and exit from the beta of a new creative studio for content creators takes an unreasonably long time. In addition, the conditions of monetization and work are constantly deteriorating for them.
But these are all small things, according to Google, according to Droid-life. The company is preparing a competitor Spotify and Apple Music in the face of YouTube Remix, which will replace Google Play Music before the end of 2018. All users of the latter are asked to switch to a new service. Naturally, there is no official confirmation of this information. YouTube Remix will be based on the extensive music catalog of video hosting with smart playlists.
