Google has made a lot of changes this year. After rechristening Android Q to Android 10, the Californian tech giant is aiming for yet another change which might leave some users pissed. According to Google’s blog post, new Android devices will ship with YouTube Music as the default music player, removing Google Play Music from the scene.
YouTube Music is is being considered to have OS-level functionality. Not just that, it will natively support suggested actions in Smart Reply, improved Digital Wellbeing tools, Dark theme, and much more. Google has been furthering YouTube Music and it was distinctively seen when in May it got the ability to play local files.
Google said, “Google Play Music listeners with new Android 10 devices can continue to enjoy Google Play Music by downloading it from the Play Store and logging in to their accounts.”
It further added, “Music listeners on Android devices are now just a few taps away from streaming their go-to tracks and discovering new music. From the gym to the car, to work—it’s all here, right in your back pocket. Discover official songs, albums and playlists, music videos, remixes, live performances, hard-to-find music, and more. Whatever your mood, we’ve got you covered.”
This move might also be to encourage users to choose YouTube Music and if people like the services, they might even think of upgrading to a premium plan.
