YouTube Red gets a rebrand as new music streaming service arrives

The revamped music service, to be renamed as YouTube Premium, supposed to soft-launch on May 22, will cost $10 a month after a trial period, and will eventually also replace Google Play Music, the report added. However, YouTube Premium will be charged at $11.99 for every new part, the organization said.

It promises "official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio plus YouTube's tremendous catalog of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos that you can't find anywhere else".

There are not many changes to YouTube Red, but it is interesting to note that it will offer access to the paid version of YouTube Music and allow us to play videos without ads on the video platform for $11.99 per month. YouTube Premium, formerly YouTube Red, will ask for a higher $12 a month commitment in exchange for a totally ad-free YouTube and original content.

The new service is the beginning of the predicted migration of Google's music offering to the YouTube brand. The company is set to announce the YouTube Music and the YouTube Premium next Tuesday. "The days of jumping back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube are over". It's also worth noting that the YouTube Music will only remove ads from music videos and not the YouTube Originals.

YouTube Red is being replaced by YouTube Premium and the new YouTube Music streaming service will launch on May 22. It will include the personalized playlists that will be totally based on the user's YouTube's usage pattern and app history. Premium subscriptions will be available for $9.99 per month.

Hamilton sets pace at Spanish Grand Prix practice
Hamilton was fastest in the second free practice session and rounded off a satisfactory Friday for the Silver Arrows. Bottas himself did not complete a simulation on the soft tyre, focussing on the medium compound Pirelli's instead.

A couple of years ago YouTube Red was launched.

However, with YouTube's backing, you also get access to millions of music videos.

The new YouTube Music largely follows that model, except it will now be available as a standalone subscription and will be launching in a bunch of new markets, too. With YouTube Premium, you'll be free of ads, able to play videos in the background, or download them for offline playback. And if Google wants to take on Spotify and Apple Music, a rebrand of GPM may be in order.
