Google Is Launching Their YouTube Music Streaming Service Next Week

YouTube is launching a new music streaming service to compete with Apple Music and Spotify.  Starting Tuesday, users in some countries (including the US) will get access to a free or premium version of the service, called YouTube Music.  Canada will likely be include in the second phase roll out in early June. Like Spotify, the premium ad-free subscription service is priced at $9.99 per month.  The service will launch in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea on May 22.  The Google-owned company has also rebranded its YouTube Red service which will become YouTube Premium and cost $11.99 per month.  Previously it was possible to have premium video services on their own through Red, but the YouTube Premium will also include YouTube Music as standard.
