In a blog post, the search giant announced Friday that it will be preloading the app with Android 10, the latest version of its popular mobile operating system. As part of the move, new devices that will launch with Android 10 will have the app preinstalled, with the company specifically calling out that it will be included with Pixel devices.
Google, of course, is planning to officially unveil its Pixel 4 line on October 15.
In addition to Android 10, the post says the app will also now be preinstalled on new devices launching with Android 9.
With YouTube Music now bundled by default, Google will no longer be including its other music service, Google Play Music, by default. Instead, those who use that service will need to download the app themselves from the Play Store.
