YouTube is soon launching a new app it calls YouTube Music, the goal of which is to help you find new music and watch and listen to it with ease.
So sayeth YouTube: "Any song or artist you choose on YouTube Music will start you on a personal journey through one of the richest music catalogs; just sign in, tap a track you love, and see where your music takes you."
In its blog post, Google mentions "as a special bonus - YouTube Red works with Google Play Music, so subscribe to one and automatically get access to the other", which makes it seem as though they're reworking Google Play Music into a new service it dubs YouTube Music. We've contacted YouTube for comment and will update the story accordingly should we hear back.
Apart from Google Play Music, Google/YouTube have launched several music services in the past. Whether this will cement itself as the one service to rule them all remains to be seen.
