In the Battle for Online Music, YouTube Enters a Crowded Field

YouTube Music Premium will have playlists, songs, and albums on top of the music videos YouTube is known for. It will also provide users access to thousands of related playlists, remixes, covers, live versions and of course, music videos.

The home screen, whether you're using the app or the web player, is always changing.

Now listen to your favorite music artist, watch Beyonce's Livestream or discover the new music, it's all here, at a single place, YouTube Music. "The days of jumping back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube are over", the company said in its announcement.

Well, YouTube reckon you have space for the latter, because they're introducing YouTube Music. Will be offered a free subscription YouTube Music (with ads) and Premium (no ads, ability to download tracks).

But it's hard to imagine Google keeping two streaming music services alive concurrently beyond the turn of the decade.

Users will also be able to cue up music without knowing a song's name by searching for things like "that hipster song with the whistling" or song lyrics, although users of ad-supported YouTube can do that as well. To say the least, the largest online music streaming service, Spotify has got a direct competition from YouTube Music. YouTube Music isn't out to replace it.

Another report states that existing YouTube Red users would continue to pay $9.99 for YouTube Premium, but would be asked to pay $9.99 separately for YouTube Music. Music labels have pressed streaming companies for a greater share of revenue and more ways for listeners to pay for music.

There is good news for current subscribers of YouTube Red.

They wish to brand YouTube as the users' one-stop destination for all sorts of digital entertainment, and a very strong step has been taken in the regard. YouTube hasn't said how many people subscribe to YouTube Red.

This new streaming service will initially only be launched in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea before being rolled out in 14 additional countries, including the UK.
