The team behind Google Play is playing with our heads.
Last week, Google sent out invitations for a "night out" event in New York on October 24 with folks from Google Play and music from Capital Cities. The instant speculation was that the event could be the long-awaited reveal of the Nexus 5 and Android KitKat, but almost as quickly as that gossip caught fire it was quashed and word spread that there would be no hardware introduced at the mysterious soiree.
Ok, so what gives?
Others have speculated that we could see a new streaming service that includes video from YouTube very soon. That could be true, but we're pretty sure it won't happen at this event in New York, and it wouldn't make much sense to do that at a Google Play-branded event, anyway.
