According to The Verge,YouTube Red and Google Play Music will merge to create a new service. YouTube Music head Lyor Cohen said the company wanted to merge the services to help "educate consumers and bring in new subscribers". YouTube Music is a free app open to everyone but offers an enhanced experience if you're also signed up to YouTube Red, which gets rid of ads on videos and lets you save them offline. People who sign up for YouTube Red also get access to Google Play Music, which is Google's version of Spotify. At the same time, people who sign up for Play Music will also get YouTube Red's benefits (if you sign up for one, you get the other free). It's not yet clear whether the two apps will merge, or how this will existing users of both services. We’ll just have to wait and see. Thoughts ?
