Google wants to solve streaming. Microsoft did it 7 years ago

The average person subscribes to three streaming services. Keeping them straight is a mess. But a fix may be coming soon.

According to a convincing leak courtesy of the blog Chrome Story, Google has been working on a new platform called Kaleidoscope. It appears to be a website that combines all of your streaming services in one place—including Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+, though conceivably Hulu, HBO Max, and others, too.

The need for such a utility is obvious. Every subscription streaming service currently lives in its own app. That means it’s not just hard to remember which service has that new show you want to watch. It’s also almost impossible to know if any of your services already include a given movie you want to watch for free, or if you have to pony up the cash for a rental.
