YouTube Launching New Music Streaming Service

YouTube wants to compete with the likes of Amazon Music and other streaming services with their new YouTube Music service. The service starts on 22 May with a new app and they claim to offer everything from songs, albums, live performances and music videos. Also, they are renaming YouTube Red to YouTube Premium that has ad-free access to YouTube originals and includes the new YouTube Music service. Existing members of YouTube Red will convert over to the new service and keep their current pricing. Maybe this service will be somthing different rather than another me too service.

But YouTube was made for video, not just music. On Tuesday, May 22, we’ll be changing that by introducing YouTube Music, a new music streaming service made for music with the magic of YouTube: making the world of music easier to explore and more personalized than ever. The days of jumping back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube are over.
