YouTube CEO Confirms Music Subscription Service Is Coming Soon

I could swear that one of the biggest attractions of YouTube, especially for teens, is that you can listen to music for free. Who is going to pay to listen to music on YouTube?

In an interview at Code/Mobile, the executive said that her team was indeed "working on it" and that this is a near-term goal. While she didn't get into specifics on the program, which may or may not be called Music Key (according to rumors, that is), she stated that one of the obstacles is figuring out "how to give people options" -- likely a way of saying that YouTube is still working out the pricing tiers and what features would be available for each individual plan.
