YouTube is usually launching a Spotify-like music streaming service called YouTube Music on Tuesday.
At $9.99 a month, the idea will cost the same as rival streaming services yet will also have a free tier supported by — what else? — ads.
In a blog post announcing the service, YouTube says that will YouTube Music will have a “reimagined mobile app” along having a brand completely new desktop music player. yet the idea doesn’t stop there. In addition to official songs along with albums, YouTube Music will also let you stream remixes, live performances, covers, along with music videos, all drawn coming from YouTube’s existing catalog.
along with because YouTube is usually owned by Google, the company responsible for developing creepily realistic artificial intelligence, YouTube Music will use those AI smarts to find songs you might not know the names of — try “that will hipster song with the whistling” says YouTube, or just punch in some song lyrics.
yet wait, doesn’t Google already have a streaming service called Google Play Music?
the idea does! The Great news is usually that will if you already have a subscription to Google Play Music, you’ll get YouTube Music as part of the idea. The bad news is usually that will even if Google Play Music isn’t going away on Tuesday, its days are certainly numbered.
Feel like giving Google even more money? For $11.99 a month, you’ll get YouTube Premium, which will get you YouTube Music as well as access to YouTube Originals like Cobra Kai. Google’s killing YouTube Red, which was what This particular entire package was called before (RIP), yet if you’re a Red subscriber, you’ll be able to get YouTube Premium for your existing $9.99 a month if you sign up before Tuesday.

YouTube Music will first roll out inside United States, Australia, completely new Zealand, Mexico, along with South Korea, before expanding to more countries.
