Google is notorious for having many services that do similar things, like its array of chat apps.

Google’s music services have been fragmented for years, but the company may change that soon.

According to a report from The Verge, YouTube’s head of music Lyor Cohen stated at the New Music Seminar conference in New York last night that YouTube Red and Google Play Music should merge to make a singular, cohesive service.
Although the report doesn’t mention YouTube Music (which is a another separate service), it’s safe to say that all three streaming offerings could be combined into one.

Google merged the YouTube Music and Google Play Music product teams together earlier this year, and that move came shortly after the business development teams for both services merged in 2016.
Google didn’t confirm or deny the merger, but the company did say users would be given notice well before any big changes occur. “Music is very important to Google and we’re evaluating how to bring together our music offerings to deliver the best possible product for our users, music partners, and artists,” reads the statement in the report. “Nothing will change for users today and we’ll provide plenty of notice before any changes are made.”
