Good question @gmack1. Google own both and as far as I can see they're simply shunting everyone across to focus on the one interface. I'd imagine it will continue but it would be good to get Optus confirmation. Not sure where Optus offers Google Play any more though?

The "free data" streaming for music & "tv" was removed 1+ years ago.
Very much doubt Optus would go and change something that is no longer current.

Music streaming does not use a heap of data compared to the large amounts of data now available on plans.

Re: Will Optus replace Google play music streaming with Youtube music streaming ?

I would like to know about this as well. I was prompted to migrate all my songs from Google play music to YT Music last week and since then noticed approx 1G per day listening to music during work. I still have that 'Music streaming' add-ons active in my account 'My Services' (and still select/unselectable). Would be good if Optus can update that to include YT Music, which is replacing Google play music.

Google play is offered as an add on to my plan, 

Music streaming

Stream your favourite songs without using your data. Simply activate Music Streaming and download an eligible music streaming app (Google Play Music and Spotify).

@gmack1

That sort of answers the question. Optus will no doubt keep offering data free music streaming to Google Play. If Google stop sending any data then you will be paying nothing for nothing.
