Makes sense - they've been sending me emails that they are consolidating duplicate music videos for the same artist on YouTube the last few months. When they collapse Google Play Music into YouTube Music, attach music videos, and leverage Youtube's size....watch out.

Let me guess - people/families that use Google Apps for their own personal domains are still fucked and unable to participate in any of the family plan stuff?

The only thing more astonishing than how badly Google fucks their early adopters is that I continue to be one...

I have been using youtube music for a few months (I pay for Youtube Red). I don’t understand what the announcement is about, is there anything new?

It'll be changing in the sense that YT Music will be a merge of the existing service + Google Play Music.

No google music on the graph, is it just not reported in terms of subscribers or is it significantly less than even pandora?

It has been a de facto free ad-supported streaming service for a while now, so this is nice.

Applications are open for YC Summer 2019
