YouTube to roll out new music service on 22 May

Google to Launch You Tube Music Week

There are not many changes to YouTube Red, but it is interesting to note that it will offer access to the paid version of YouTube Music and allow us to play videos without ads on the video platform for $11.99 per month. Google Play Music will receive a YouTube Music Premium membership as part of their subscription. Existing subscribers, who are already paying $9.99 a month, will be transfered to a YouTube Music Premium subscription automatically.

The split makes a lot of sense when you consider how many people use YouTube for playing music for free despite a plethora of excellent streaming experiences like Spotify and Apple Music.

Recently, it is planning to launch a newer version of service known as YouTube Red which will feature personalized playlists based on individual's YouTube history and many more.

"The days of jumping back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube are over", YouTube said.

By clicking the button , the users can enjoy this feature. "Stickers are also coming to WhatsApp soon", the company said at F8. WhatsApp now lets the group admin write a short description of the group , setting the guidelines and objective in the process.

The built-in search functionality takes a page from Google Home and Assistant with users able to look songs up by lyrics and even descriptions (that hipster song with the whistling).

You may be thinking, "wait a minute, there's already a YouTube Music!". Google promises that YouTube Red customers will be moved to YouTube Premium and will pay what they pay for YouTube Red right now. So essentially this is what is happening, YouTube Red will now be split into YouTube Music and the YouTube Premium. YouTube Premium expects to expand in new markets over the next few years, including Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. For ad-free music and downloads, you will need to subscribe to YouTube Music Premium.

YouTube Music is launching from 22 May. The reason that YouTube Red is thrown into the mix is that a new service called "YouTube Premium" was also announced.

In 2014, it debuted YouTube Music Key, a subscription service that never expanded beyond a small, invite-only crowd of testers. That odd service is going to be retired in favor of YouTube Music, though the exact details have yet to be explained. Subscribers to the service can also play video in the background on mobile devices (which is nice for podcasts) and you'll be directly supporting creators.
