YouTube Music, a New Streaming Service, to Launch May 22

The New YouTube Music will replace the original service that launched in 2015.

Google has upped the ante in the music streaming market by announcing YouTube Music, a music streaming service which includes ad-free music, background listening, and downloads. Good news is that if you have a Google Play Music subscription, you will get YouTube Music Premium membership as a part of your monthly subscription.

A statement on YouTube's Official Blog yesterday (May 16) revealed that the service will offer a free, ad-supported tier as well as a premium version. It will be priced at $11.99 per month, while YouTube Music Premium will be priced at $9.99, the current price for YouTube Red.

Although YouTube Red isn't now available in the United Kingdom, the changes mean that the service is finally on its way here, alongside a host of other European countries including Ireland, France and Germany. Even if users are unable to remember a song or video name, the company claims YouTube Music can display the most accurate results from descriptions on search.

In an interview, reported on by CNET, Lyor Cohen, YouTube's head of music, said that the company plans to "spend an enormous amount on marketing" to promote the new music service, but will not seek to strike exclusives for album releases.

The real draw of YouTube Premium is the removal of advertising.

Customers may reserve the YouTube Red price for YouTube Premium in countries where YouTube Red is available by joining YouTube Red (in other words, by subscribing to YouTube Red right now).

California-based Video-sharing website YouTube has several plans related to the music service.

According to the company, YouTube Premium that is replacing YouTube red will be a bit more expensive. With existing Android and iOS clients, there will also be a "brand new desktop player" for YouTube Music. Well, it's YouTube's big music push, something that has been rumored for, well, years now and was recently said to be called YouTube Remix.
