YouTube's Revamped Subscription Platform Will Launch Next Tuesday

The latter will be a separate service called "YouTube Premium" where consumers can subscribe to access original shows. "Functionally the same" as the service today, it will includes features like personalized playlists based on a user's YouTube history.

In the US, YouTube Music Premium will set you back $9.99 per month, although a free version of YouTube Music with ads will also be available, similar to Spotify. An upgrade to YouTube Music Premium, priced at $9.99 a month, will remove those ads and allow for background playback and music downloads.

Since its launch in February 2005, and subsequent acquisition by Google in November 2006, video streaming portal YouTube has grown to a position of nearly absolute dominance in the video streaming sector.

YouTube Music's new mobile app. Photo: Google YouTube Music replaces Google Play Music and YouTube RedGoogle Play Music will be slowly phased out following the launch of YouTube Music. However, if you are a YouTube Red subscriber, you will be able to enjoy all the services at the current price. And in the course of a month this service will be available in Canada, Germany, France, UK and other European countries.

The new YouTube Music experience will be available on May 22.

Subscribers to Google Play Music get YouTube Music Premium added to their subscription without additional cost. Other countries, such as the United Kingdom, will be getting YouTube Music in "coming weeks". As long as you describe it well, or provide a line or two of lyrics, it will give you the song you want.

'Brain Drain' at Tesla May Undermine Musk's Strategy
Federal officials have opened investigations into at least two other crashes involving Tesla vehicles in the last two months. On Monday, firefighters in Switzerland said a fatal accident involving a Tesla may have set off a fire in the car's battery.

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

Apart from YouTube Music, Google-owned YouTube will also be re-launching YouTube Red as YouTube Premium. It's not just official artist videos either, as you can also stream any remixes or live versions of songs you can find on the video streaming service, something rival services can't offer.

So does that mean we have to say goodbye to Google Play Music?

On the brighter side, this should help YouTube better both the Music and the Original program catalogs.

A couple of years ago YouTube Red was launched.

It's also worth mentioning podcasts which are now available through Google Play Music. The service will offer ad-free music experience.
