Google is planning on dropping Google Play Music and forcing all the service’s users over to their upcoming music streaming service, which we’d heard was going to be called YouTube Remix. For better or worse, though, it looks like that name was just something internal and won’t be the official name.
Instead, Google will be sticking with YouTube Music, most likely since it’s already an established service that people are familiar with.
There are no other details right now besides clarification on the naming scheme, but that might hint at Google using the existing YouTube Music application for the service. That would be bad news for anyone wanting to keep using Google Play Music for existing uploaded music, but don’t panic just yet. Google I/O is just days away, and we’ll probably see some details during the keynote.
