YouTube Introduces YouTube Music with Premium Subscription Options

With streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal now dominating the market, YouTube Music comes in to offer access to its catalog of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos that aren't available elsewhere. It's just a $2 monthly premium on top of the music subscription.

The new YouTube music subscription service - previously codenamed "Remix" - has been confirmed and will launch in five markets next Tuesday (May 22). It will contain thousands of playlists and the official versions of millions of songs, albums, artist radio, and more, plus all of the music videos already being served up by YouTube.

One would expect that YouTube Music would eventually move to replace current music service Google Play.

YouTube Music is a premium music streaming service that does away with all of YouTube's major annoyances: It offers an ad-free experience, background listening and downloads.

Pricing for YouTube Premium will be grandfathered for users of YouTube Red apparently, with YouTube saying "When YouTube Premium launches, YouTube Red members will automatically receive access at their current price". YouTube Music has a comprehensive search function too, that you can use to find songs even if you don't know the name or artist.

Apart from YouTube Music, Google-owned YouTube will also be re-launching YouTube Red as YouTube Premium.

He even turned down invitations from England's manager Gareth Southgate to play in qualifying matches against Malta and Slovakia. That was until Tunisia seemed to replicate exactly what Walker did to concede a penalty.

A new YouTube Music streaming service is set to launch on May 22 for users to stream music at both free and premium price points.

The AI-powered assistant is instructed to make music suggestion based on what type of music you enjoy.

YouTube Premium, meanwhile, will offer ad-free, background, and offline video access across all devices.

There will be two versions of new service, an ad-supported version and YouTube Music Premium, for $9.99 a month. And it's also easier to discover new music. For now, at least, those subscribers will still be able to access all their purchased music, uploads and playlists in Google Play Music.

YouTube is promising an expanded slate of original content including comedies, dramas, reality series and action adventure shows from the U.K., Germany, France, Mexico and more.
