As a five-year subscriber to Google Play Music, I have to admit that I'm a little upset by it. It's further proof that Google does not care about its own music services even on its own operating system. I'm not alone. In tweete's announcement Google requested music suggestions to create an AM playlist. "What about YouTube Music Integration?" the first answer asked . It's not an unfair question: Google has recently made a lot of noise about all the energy and resources it has thrown behind the YouTube Music relaunch.
Scroll down, you'll see so many questions (including someone ) Google Play Music ), as you get music suggestions. Search-Moloch has confirmed 9to5Google that YouTube Music subscribers will enjoy similar features "soon," making it sound like a timed exclusivity for Spotify.
The music will sound Regardless of the source, when you come out of sleep, but for people who have their own morning playlists on their Google accounts, it feels like a slap in the face. Spotify is likely to have more subscribers than any of Mountain View's own music services, but Lollipop has been in the wild for three years. Loyal Google fans wait for custom wakeup music for so long, and they come from a third-party source their own is daunting.
It is a shame that Google is willing to spend money – some of it already has a lot – and a competitor in front of its own services and the people who use it.
