YouTube's Revamped Subscription Platform Will Launch Next Tuesday

Further, the company has also introduced YouTube Premium, which a revamped version of its YouTube Red service for $11.99 per month.

The announcement follows the company's recent updated charts and the recent addition of songwriter, label and publisher credits to music on YouTube. It's particularly popular in emerging markets where you can see YouTube listeners on public transport or other moments that Spotify and co would want to own.

YouTube confirmed in its blog post that: "More than 1 billion music fans come to YouTube each month to be part of music culture and discover new music".

However, with YouTube's backing, you also get access to millions of music videos.

YouTube Music is, as the name suggests, a music streaming service that will launch on May 22.

YouTube will begin rolling out the music streaming service in the US, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico on Tuesday. It will expand more broadly in the coming weeks.

Downtime begins at 4am ET (08:00 GMT),' Epic Games said in a statement overnight. Fortnite Battle Royale is free to play now for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Mobile.

So how does it work? The service will offer ad-free music experience.

YouTube Premium is rolling out in the existing markets with Red - the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea, where existing subscribers can continue to pay the old price of United States dollars 9.99 per month. That's right, Google already has a YouTube Music app, but it sucks and no one uses it. Over the years YouTube has been the cradle of many content creators and has carved a niche. But for now, Google Play Music subscriptions are safe and they include access to YouTube Music Premium. Except that YouTube Red will now be known as YouTube Premium since it covers both music and video. It's not just official artist videos either, as you can also stream any remixes or live versions of songs you can find on the video streaming service, something rival services can't offer.

Roman added: "YouTube Music's personalized home screen dynamically adapts to provide recommendations based on people's listening history, where they are and what they're doing".

Fortunately, existing Red subscribers will be grandfathered in to the current rate of $9.99 per month.

Google's been amassing a new team to take on the music industry, from streaming competitors like Spotify to the record labels that control what music can appear on what platforms and how.

While I'm not interested in the new services, I'm sure that users from around the world will find the services interesting.
