YouTube has announced that the YouTube Music app will be pre-installed on future Android devices replacing Google Play Music. The app will also be pre-installed on Android 10, Android 9 Pie and Google’s Pixel devices. This coming on the heels of Spotify infiltrating older phones with Spotify Lite.
Also, the newly redesigned Google Play Store interface, which gets two billion visitors per month, has a navigation bar at the bottom of the app on Android phones and new left navigation for tablets and Chrome OS devices.
Finally, YouTube was hit by a wave of account hijacks last week. According to a ZDNet investigation, the developers in the community of auto-tuning and auto-review companies were hit hard.
