YouTube Music officially available for users

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

Google's YouTube will launch a music streaming service next week, it said on Thursday, looking to use its popular internet video brand to tap the growing market for paid music streaming.

On the other hand, the new YouTube Premium tier, which bundles Music and the company's original lineup and ad-free viewing, will set back subscribers $12 a month, marking a $2 price bump from YouTube Red's current price.

It is now clear that YouTube Premium wants to position themselves as the most happening online music streaming service. According to Google, the main YouTube advantage will be that it will combine all the official versions of songs. The app is a subsidiary of YouTube app for music and music videos.

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.

YouTube Premium, which will replace YouTube Red, will cost $11.99. "YouTube Red is a service that is really a music service", she said, adding that exclusive shows are added on top of that service.

House Republicans in the middle of an immigration nightmare
Ryan has said he wants a bill that President Trump will sign, and he noted the White House opposes the more moderate measure. It would also contain provisions strengthening border security in an effort to win GOP votes, one of the lawmakers said.

By separating its music and premium video services, YouTube may be attempting to boost its brand as a music streamer, as an essential service that can displace competitors.

YouTube Music will launch on May 22 and include features such as personalised playlists based on a user's YouTube history.

Music-streaming companies have long had strained relations with music labels, facing accusations that they don't fairly compensate artists for their creative work and for encouraging audiences to pilfer music. Reportedly launching on May 22, it's the company's latest effort to catch up to rivals Spotify and Apple Music. As a result, services such as Spotify and Apple Music have become the recording industry's biggest source of revenue. The challenge is figuring out how to turn those people into paying subscribers.

In countries where YouTube Red is now available, including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and South Korea, you can still sign up for YouTube Red at the current $10 (U.S.) subscription price - just act before May 22.

YouTube has promised that more original series from US, Mexico, France, Germany and other countries would feature soon.
