Youtube is launching a new version of his music streaming service.
The 22nd of may 2018, Youtube will release his new version of music streaming service, called Youtube Music Premium, replacing Youtube Red.
For $9,99, the service is aimed to compete with Apple Music and Spotify.
An ad-supported version will also be available for free, but of course, it won’t include premium features such as ad-free, background listening, song downloads (to listen offline).
The new service will also replace the existing Google Play Music service.
Before, Youtube Music was part of Youtube Red, which is now priced at $11,99 per month, and called Youtube Premium, covering both music and video.
To resume, you will be able to choose between Youtube Premium for video and music for $11,99 or Youtube Music Premium for $9,99. It’s tempting to go for Youtube Premium for an extra $2 per month!
This new offer makes sense as millions of people are using Youtube to listen to music.
The service will be available first in U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea and later in: Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
