Google plans to shake up its music offering and ad-free video service, according to statements made by Lyor Cohen, the head of Google Play Music. As it stands today, Google Play Music is available to a single person for $10 per month and families for $15 per month. YouTube Red allows people to enjoy an ad-free YouTube experience for $10 per month. Purchasing YouTube Red, however, gives people access to Google Play Music at no extra charge. Google also offers YouTube Music and YouTube TV, which are separate services for music videos and live TV, respectively. Moving forward, Google Play Music and YouTube Red will be offered together. "The important thing is combining YouTube Red and Google Play Music, and having one offering," said Cohen. Cohen didn't provide any details on what the merged service might look like, but he did say Google will give customers plenty of warning. "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. Nothing will change for users today and we’ll provide plenty of notice before any changes are made," said Cohen in a statement provided to The Verge. YouTube TV is the newest of these media services and is only available in 15 markets around the country. It costs $35 per month and will continue to stand on its own.
