YouTube extends music streaming service to Europe

18 June, 2018, 21:11 | Author: Sammy Rose

The new service is an attempt by the Californian digital empire to combat its fast-growing rivals like Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer.

YouTube Premium, which is actually a different service from YouTube Music Premium, is also available today. For the first time, YouTube is also detailing that a Family Plan is available for $14.99 in the US and Canada. The service will bring an end to Google's other subscription efforts, including YouTube Red's ad-free, paywalled video tier and Google Play Music. Google is effectively counting on the draw of offering a combination of video and music in one app as a reason for people to make the switch.

Google has finally announced that its recently released YouTube Music streaming service is coming to the UK. We've heard about this a ton over the previous year.

OnePlus 6 update to fix bootloader flaw is rolling out

It turns out there is a very good reason the apps are now co-existing: it's all about making sure that all functionality that Google Play Music users now enjoy is eventually ported over to YouTube Music - as it stands, this just isn't the case. It's going to eventually replace Google Play Music in Google's lineup and, unlike its predecessor, it links directly to ... It makes the music-on-YouTube experience more personalised than ever before, with access to new playlists, videos, albums, singles, remixes, live performances, and other music you can only get on YouTube. The Premium service is £11.99 in the United Kingdom with a three-month free trial on offer.

Spotify-esquely, you can have an ad-supported version of YouTube Music for nothing, or pay £9.99 per month for an ad-free version dubbed YouTube Music Premium. You can also search by lyrics (even if they're wrong). YouTube Premium does include the Music subscription along with all the benefits of that service. Also launching Monday, "YouTube Originals" are a roster of new shows made in collaboration with popular YouTube personalities and celebrities that Google is hoping you'll find so compelling you'll shell out an extra £2/$2 per month. It also claims nothing is changing for subscribers of Google Play Music - saying users will still be able to access all their purchased music, uploads and playlists. If you want to try out the service there's a three-month trial available too.
