Music streaming by Google goes serious
Today, on Google Play’s first birthday, we hear rumours that the company is working hard to start the music streaming service we reported to you about earlier. The rumours say that Google has reached an agreement with the grand record label Warner Music. Moreover, Google is expected to leave YouTube aside and perform changes with it different from those in the store.
According to Billboard, the deal between Google and Warner related to music streaming is a fact. On the other hand, a spokesman of YouTube shared with Billboard that there are people thinking they may benefit from the planned premium subscriptions. For example, some content creators may add to their profit from ads. However, it seems that the premium subscriptions will come true because the push of record labels. This is comprehensible, as these companies have never appreciated the value of the Internet and the numerous possibilities it offers. Maybe they will be pleased if they also get something from it.
It seems the music streaming service will be one more gift for us from Google, though it surely won’t come on the company’s birthday. The music streaming service through Google Play will be a comfortable for all of us, as long as its price is kept down. However, the changes in YouTube may affect us as now there certainly will be a separation – the normal users won’t get us much as the premium ones. We don’t know how the things will be, but surely something will be different – for the best or not.
Whatever the rumours say, Google is continuing to negotiate and sign contracts. The company is negotiating with Universal (a company that showed interest in the plans Google) and Sony Music. We would be glad to hear your opinion and experience in the comments underneath this article.
