YouTube is launching a music streaming service next week

YouTube music is more focused towards offering music, videos and demands a YouTube Red subscription.

After months of testing and teasing, YouTube will relaunch its streaming platform next Tuesday (May 22) with multiple subscription price points alongside an entry-level, ad-supported version. This will get expanded beyond to other countries in the following weeks.

YouTube today announced in its official blog that YouTube Music, a new music streaming service will be coming on May 22nd while YouTube red will be replaced by Premium service that will cost you a bit more. Although YouTube has a giant library of songs and videos, it competes with Google Play Music and YouTube Red, which is the company's advertisement-free video streaming service. For the existing YouTube Red members, the current subscription price will continue for YouTube Premium. However, YouTube Premium will be charged at $11.99 for every new part, the organization said. Of course, the YouTube Originals are also still here.

What version of YouTube do Play Music subscribers get? And the service's home screen will dynamically adapt based on users' preferences, history, even location (for example, you'll be offered some blood-pumping music while at the gym). YouTube is also a brand that people associate with music, which was not true of Play Music.

YouTube Premium is geared towards "cord cutters", as many now have streaming options aside from traditional cable TV. The service will feature a redesigned mobile app that is specifically created to play music, presumably replacing the one now available on the App Store. The relaunched platform will offer access to ad-free videos and music, along with YouTube original shows for $12 per month. "You'll still be able to access all of your purchased music, uploads and playlists in Google Play Music just like always".

Thousands of playlists built to help you discover new music.
