Google guns for Spotify with new music-streaming service — YouTube Music

YouTube to launch music streaming service on 22 May

Google, YouTube's parent company, hopes the new streaming service will boost its position in the global music streaming market.

There's no ETA for the launch of Google Premium, but the new YouTube Music will start rolling out on Tuesday.

As its name so plainly says, YouTube Music is all about Music.

YouTube Premium contains background and offline, ad-free YouTube.

But with music streaming continuing to be dominated by the likes of Spotify and Apple Music, what hope can YouTube have to break through?

"Cobra Kai" is a comedy series of 10 episodes, and is a sequel to the hit franchise "Karate Kid".

The real draw of YouTube Premium is the removal of advertising. YouTube Red members won't be charged extra. The Google site will no longer offer one subscription that combines both music features and original content. Google promises that nothing will change for Google Play Music subscribers. YouTube might very well become its sole entertainment brand.

Many questions remain about the separation of the new services. According to sources, YouTube Music will be launched with some fantastic and exciting features.

According to the information of the source, YouTube's refurbished music service to be retitled as YouTube Premium. Those numbers, however, have dipped thanks to controversies surrounding the very stars that YouTube has tried to grow.

At present Music is a modified YouTube app that requires a red subscription. The experience will include especially curated recommendations and playlists based on YouTube history as well as your current context (like location).

Created way back in 2005, and acquired by Google just 18 months later for a whopping $1.65 billion, the world's largest video-sharing platform seems to believe we need yet another "premium" music streaming service.

GOOGLE'S CONSTANT quest to avoid atrophy has resulted in a lot of duplication, and YouTube Premium is the latest example.

In a statement, YouTube said its new offering will include thousands of playlists, millions of songs, albums and artist radio, as well as music videos.
