YouTube is remixing its subscription services, relaunching its Spotify-like rival YouTube Music as a $10-a-month membership mostly devoid of video, and recasting the YouTube Red ad-free, paywalled video tier as YouTube Premium. YouTubeMusic will cost $9.99 a month, and - this is a surprise given past speculation - the new service will still sit alongside Google Play Music for now, rather than replacing it.
In addition to millions of official songs, other content includes thousands of playlists, artist radio, remixes, covers, and live versions.
In 2014, it debuted YouTube Music Key, a subscription service that never expanded beyond a small, invite-only crowd of testers.
However, the real question here is what this means for Google Play Music and YouTubeRed. In order to avoid ads, users will have to pay $11.99/month or subscribe to YouTube premium that includes YouTube Music.

Now You: What is your take on YouTube Music Premium and YouTube Premium? In fact, new subscribers in countries where Red is already available can sign-up now to lock in the price ahead of the new service. The company has announced that the music service is free, though it has introduced a YouTube Music Premium, which is a paid membership for $9.99 per month. "If there was ever a company that could build a successful subscription business, it would be YouTube", Lyor Cohen, YouTube's head of music, said this week in an interview.
The new service will begin rolling out to the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea next week, before coming to the United Kingdom and select other territories in the coming weeks. It's the replacement for YouTube Red, including ad-free, background and offline access to all YouTube content, including original shows, and a YouTube Music subscription included. It's particularly popular in emerging markets where you can see YouTube listeners on public transport or other moments that Spotify and co would want to own.
In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the upcoming changes to YouTube Music?YouTube Music will be able to leverage your YouTube viewing history and listening habits to offer different types of music based on where you are, what you're doing, and what your preferences are.
