YouTube Music rumored to launch on Tuesday along with rebranded YouTube Premium

YouTube has never disclosed how many people subscribe to YouTube Music (or YouTube Red, for that matter), but its subscription music service has largely existed in the shadow of Spotify, the biggest streaming music service with 75 million paying members, and Apple Music, with its closest competitor with 40 million paid subscribers. But like the recently revamped Google News, YouTube Music will offer personalized playlists based on data that Google/YouTube already has on you, with a pinch of AI, of course.

"YouTube Music is a new music streaming service made for music: official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio plus YouTube's tremendous catalog of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos that you can't find anywhere else - all simply organised and personalised", explained product manager Elias Roman in a blog post this morning.

As for pricing, YouTube Premium will cost $11.99 Dollars per month in the USA, while YouTube Music on its own will cost $9.99 USD per month. Google has worked hard over the past few years to create algorithms that detect licensed music and immediately shuts them down, but there is still a lot of free music on YouTube that no one but Google is benefiting from. YouTube Music 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. The YouTube team is planning a not insignificant change to YouTube Red, the subscription service that not only removes ads from YouTube but also allows access to YouTube original content, including the popular Cobra Kai. Google Play Music will remain for now and subscribers instantly get YouTube Music Premium as well.

New and iconic videos from "God's Plan" and "Havana" to "Thriller", "Sledgehammer", and more.

YouTube Music rumored to launch on Tuesday along with rebranded YouTube Premium

The company said the first stops will be U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea. Originally launched back in 2015, YouTube Red was a hit for its ad-free experience and original content.

YouTube Music search works even if fans don't know exactly what they're looking for ... we'll find it if they describe it (try "that hipster song with the whistling") or give us some lyrics (try "I make money moves"). As for its ad removal, YouTube premium removes all traces of them from any and all videos. If you are a YouTube Red member, your service will automatically receive access at your current price. That also includes ad-free, background play and downloads across all of YouTube, plus the promise of more original shows from all over the world.

YouTube Music will also "soon" be launching in Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, said YouTube.
