YouTube Music is Here as Google's New Music Service

New YouTube subscription music service will launch next week – but only in 5 markets YouTube launches new music streaming service May 22

YouTube has never disclosed how many people subscribe to YouTube Music (or YouTube Red, for that matter), but its subscription music service has largely existed in the shadow of Spotify, the biggest streaming music service with 75 million paying members, and Apple Music, with its closest competitor with 40 million paid subscribers.

Rumors have circulated that Google Play Music - Google's original music offering and the mechanism for their 50,000 song music locker and music purchases - will be killed off by the end of this year in favor of the new service.

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. It's also coming soon to the new markets Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, where the service will cost the equivalent of Dollars 11.99 per month. There will be other "bells and whistles", but there's no word on what those might be just yet.

YouTube is all set to launch its new streaming service, known as YouTube Music pretty soon.

But that's not all.

In addition, YouTube has announced that will soon re-brand its premium subscription YouTube Red service as YouTube Premium, which will include access to all YouTube Originals as well as YouTube Music for $11.99 a month. If you're already a YouTube Red (soon to be YouTube Premium) member, don't worry you'll still enjoy your current price.

Marvel Avengers OnePlus 6 is here and it looks awesome
The kicker for such a good looking device is the price - at 4199 yuan (AU$875) it is more expensive than the non Avengers phone. Sale of OnePlus 6 will begin in India from May 21 for customers who have subscribed to Amazon Prime and from May 22 otherwise.

What do you think of these changes? "For the first time, all the ways music moves you can be found in one place".

In regards to the future of Play Music, "nothing will change", according to Google's official post.

There will be a new YouTube Music app, which will feature a personalized home screen which "dynamically adapts to provide recommendations based on people's listening history, where they are and what they're doing". Entering the gym? We'll suggest some beats to get the heart-rate going. You're right, but Google wants you to forget about that. The ad-free, background play option will be available to users across all of YouTube.

The new service promises "a reimagined mobile app and brand new desktop player that are designed for music" and access to thousands of playlists, millions of songs, albums, artist radio and all the music videos you could want. Now studios, and the artists they represent, can get a cut of the subscription service while you listen to music ad-free.

YouTube Music begins rolling out next Tuesday in the United States, Mexico, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand.
