As a five-year Google Play Music subscriber, I must admit that I'm a bit miffed of this. There is more evidence that Google does not care about its own music services, even on its own operating system. I'm not alone. In the announcement tweet Google called for music suggestions to build 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's pouring out of the YouTube Music relaunch.
Scroll down and you'll see as many questions as it (including some asking about Google Play Music ) to suggest music suggestions. Hopefully, search engineersnaut confirmed to 9to5Google that YouTube Music subscribers want the same functionality soon, which makes it look like this is a time-limited exclusive to Spotify.
The music should be heard No matter when you get out of sleep, but for people who have their own morning playlists on their Google accounts, it feels like a blow on the face. Spotify probably has more subscribers than some of Mountain View's native music services, combined, but Lollipop has been in nature for three years at this point. To earn loyal Google fans awaits this for a long time on custom wake music, and comes from a third-party source before its own is disappointing.
It's a shame that Google is willing to put money – something it already has a lot – and a competitor in front of their own services and those who use them.
