YouTube launches new music streaming service May 22

YouTube Music coming soon

It's basically all of the music you find on YouTube, with videos and everything, better put together than the current YouTube Music.

YouTube Premium includes the new YouTube Music, which offers ad-free listening with offline downloads, plus original YouTube series and movies, on top of ad-free YouTube viewing. On the app's homescreen, you scroll past shelves and shelves of recommending music and playlists - individualized selections of new releases, a My Mixtape personalized playlist, collections similar to an artist you've been listening to a lot lately, a selection called Throwback Jams - before you get to recommended music vidoes and professional clips of live performances. But for now, Google Play Music subscriptions are safe and they include access to YouTube Music Premium.

There's no mention of the YouTube Remix service that's been rumoured, with rumours pointing to Google transitioning all existing Google Play Music users to the service by the end of the year.

After several months of delays, YouTube Music is relaunching its subscription service on Tuesday, which will be available as an ad-supported (i.e. free) model and as a Premium model for $9.99 per month, with various bundle options for other Google services.

Recode this evening detailed the upcoming relaunch of YouTube Music.

YouTube Music

YouTube may be the household name when it comes to online videos and some music but when it comes to monetizing that popularity, it has nothing on Netflix, Spotify, or even Apple Music. The YouTube team is planning a not insignificant change to YouTube Red, the subscription service that not only removes ads from YouTube but also allows access to YouTube original content, including the popular Cobra Kai. YouTube Premium will be charged at $11.99 for all new members, the company said. "It's a little bit of an art and not a science, because you might be using YouTube to research something, and we really want to be playing things you want", he said.

And what of Google Play Music? It will be expanded to some other countries in the following weeks.

The Tuesday launch will cover the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea only, with Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom to follow in the coming weeks. If you're already a YouTube Red (soon to be YouTube Premium) member, don't worry you'll still enjoy your current price. If we convert American pricing to Canadian, it could cost about $15 or so per month (which includes YouTube Music). This is in contrast to earlier reports and could of course change in the future.
