YouTube launches new streaming service, YouTube Music

19 Juin 2018

Kind of, sort of.

The latter will follow Spotify's current model, allowing users to stream music for free (with ads) or pay $9.99 per month to remove them.

In the official blog post, the company outlines some of the unique features of the streaming service available through the stand-alone Android and iOS apps and desktop player.

YouTube has officially announced their long-in-the-works YouTube Music service, after announcing expanded music credits yesterday.

The video streaming company said it will also launch YouTube Premium, the revamped YouTube Red subscription service.

The idea is that with the Google Assistant, Google's smartphone app that uses artificial intelligence to help guide your life, subscribers to the new YouTube Music will find a service that makes smarter suggestions on what music to listen to. That'll get you ad-free music, background listening, and downloads.

Google has been busy making sure that YouTube Red (now YouTube Premium) is a true Netflix rival, adding some decent premium programming. For $11.99 per month, you get ad-free YouTube, access to original content, downloads, and background play.

Both are expected to launch in the United Kingdom in the next few months, following a release in the USA and Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on 22 May. "But YouTube was made for video, not just music".

Now streaming via Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, and Google Play, FierceCable Radio brings you interviews and analysis covering the pay TV, media and entertainment industries.

How Much Does YouTube Music Cost? Oh, and the search tool will also support esoteric queries or lyric lookups, similar to Google's engine, like "that hipster song with the whistling".

The news does also mean that YouTube Red is changing and will get a new name: YouTube Premium.

It's worth noting that Google was previously expected to replace Google Play Music with a YouTube-based service; it looks like that will indeed happen at some point, but it could take until 2019.

Google customers get music and video streaming for $11.99 per month (or $9.99 if they have been migrated from YouTube Red), or only music streaming for $9.99. We caught wind of a new service coming previous year and it was meant to arrive in March, so it's only a couple of months late. This app will combine everything you love about music and videos on YouTube.
