YouTube launches its own music streaming service

YouTube app for iPhone

Roman reminded us: "More than 1 billion music fans come to YouTube each month to be part of music culture and discover new music".

The new service will look a lot like that of market leader Spotify, which offers a free, ad-supported tier as well as a paid premium option.

In terms of price, YouTube Music will be available for $9.99 per month. For ad-free music and downloads, you will need to subscribe to YouTube Music Premium. It will be extended to the other countries in the upcoming weeks.

Google just announced that it will be launching a new music streaming service called, YouTube Music on 22 May. According to Recode, YouTube Music will eventually replace Google Play Music, Google's very similar music streaming service.

Meanwhile, YouTube Music Premium launches with a monthly subscription price of AU$14.99 a month for new members.

YouTube Music reimagines the mobile app but also comes to desktop, similar to how Google Play Music now works. A personalized home screen will adapt to your listening history to provide not only better recommendations, but also more specific recommendations-for instance, a relaxing suggestion will be offered when at the airport or an up-tempo song suggested at the gym. That means no matter what kind of music you like, where you are, what you're doing, or what mood you're in, you can easily find the right playlist for that moment.

YouTube Red was launched back in 2015 and it charges users $9.99 a month to stream content without ads, download videos for offline viewing and watch Red original shows. It is a mobile app and desktop player that gives you access to millions of songs.

YouTube is overhauling its subscription streaming business. What you want to focus on is YouTube Music and YouTube Premium.

The company's focus is on personalization that tries to keep a track on the music a user likes but this time around it is pushing videos to the background.

YouTube Music will begin rolling out on Tuesday in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea.
