Google is re-launching Streaming - Again
We were going to do a long post but Engadget did a very good one, check it out.
Their current site, Play.Google.com/music, is boring and looks like something designed by a high-schooler. Spotify is so much better, just from a UI standpoint! In general, Google does not do very well with user interfaces; Google+ is another example. Also there is (was?) something called YouTube Red; terrible branding.
Youtube should just stay free - what is what people want. The real problem is that Google thinks it can tell people what they ought to want; instead of just listening.
The bottom line is this: right now, there is NO compelling reason for anyone to get their music streaming from Google. BUT: I know the solution - so contact me, Google...
