Future tense

Question

sunny1

Is the classification for will and am going to comprehensive?

For example, suppose you have the sentence "You will shortly hear music" or "You'll...", which indicates a certainty.

I have heard this kind of construction used many times. More often than "going to" and often with the contraction.

Is it grammatically incorrect?

No, it isn't incorrect. 'will' and 'going to' are often interchangeable when it is irrelevant whether something is someone's intention or a series of certain events planned in advance.

In presentations, we often do this: Today, I'm going to speak about ...., Firstly, I'll ..., then, I'll ...  etc.
