Google is taking on Apple's acquisition of Beats Music with its own acquisition of Songza, a streaming service that delivers "contextual expert-curated playlists" to listeners. Right now, Google is running Songza as a separate company, but Google Play revealed in a Google+ post that it expects to roll Songza's beloved features into Google Play.
"We aren't planning any immediate changes to Songza, so it will continue to work like usual for existing users," Google Play stated in a post on Google+. "Over the coming months, we'll explore ways to bring what you love about Songza to Google Play Music."
We're also hearing that Songza's features could also appear in the future in YouTube as well.
