YouTube Music streaming service to launch on 22 May

Youtube App on iPhone X with Cult of Mac Video

"YouTube is where artists and fans connect: creating and discovering a world of music".

Late Wednesday, the company introduced two new services: YouTube Music Premium and YouTube Premium. Similarly to market leader Spotify, YouTube Music will have an ad-supported free version and a version without ads, which will cost $9.99 a month. It's unclear whether the new price will just be an additional $2 or if there will be a family option for just Music Premium.

Our friends in the USA have long had YouTube Red, which a subscription service which offered videos from major networks and other originals without ads.

YouTube's new music streaming service will be launched next week, May 22, Google has confirmed.

Much like YouTube Red, Premium will give you access to all of YouTube's Originals including fortcoming releases like Impulse and Liza Koshy's Liza on Demand.

The good thing is if you are a Play Music subscriber you will get the YouTube Music premium membership as part of your subscription each month. YouTube Music is a re-imagined mobile app and brand new desktop player available in a free ad-funded incarnation, or a premium version priced at $9.99 a month. Additionally, it provides YouTube Originals.

YouTube Music reimagines the mobile app but also comes to desktop, similar to how Google Play Music now works. And the service's home screen will dynamically adapt based on users' preferences, history, even location (for example, you'll be offered some blood-pumping music while at the gym).

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.

With Google focusing its resources on artificial intelligence, AI makes a big impact for Google users who will use YouTube Music. You can sign up to receive more information about launch dates here.

Basically, under the new pricing system, there's no way to subscribe alone to premium video content alone.

YouTube Music starts to roll out from Tuesday in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea.
