YouTube's Own Music Streaming Service Goes Live Next Week

YouTube Music is launching in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea next Tuesday (22nd May), with other markets - including the United Kingdom - following in the "coming weeks".

Google also announced that its YouTube Red video subscription service is being rebranded as YouTube Premium, and the $11.99 per month subscription will include YouTube Music. YouTube Music Premium is the ad-free version of the music streamer that allows you to listen to tunes in the background, and download tunes. YouTube's tremendous catalogue of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos that you can't find anywhere else - all simply organised and personalised.

Meanwhile, YouTube Music Premium launches with a monthly subscription price of AU$14.99 a month for new members. If you're already a YouTube Red (soon to be YouTube Premium) member, don't worry you'll still enjoy your current price. YouTube Music will cost $10 per month while YouTube Premium will cost $12 and include Music, Ad-free content and premium video content. The company unveiled two new products, including YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, that will get you access to plenty of ad-free content, including YouTube originals. But with the introduction of YouTube Music Premium, the streamer is separating the experiences for original programming and music. A personalized home screen will provide recommendations based on people's listening history, as well as where they are and what they're doing. YouTube Music is now the brand. Before anyone would use Spotify or Apple Music, YouTube was the go-to spot for streaming music.

Because starting next Tuesday, YouTube Red is going away.

So, where does ad-free video come in? The second tier of the music service costs $9.99.

It is believed that YouTube Music will eventually replace Google Play Music, which is to be fazed out by the company. YouTube Premium will initially launch in the four countries above plus South Korea.
