Yesterday YouTube had launched its music streaming service to 12 new countries, such as Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom and intends to expand this list up to 100 counties next time.
Also, Youtube has an update of its subscription service: now YouTube Music is monthly paid and ad-supported service that pretends to replace Google Play Music and YouTube Red is now YouTube Premium.
YouTube added some new features, like dynamic custom recommendations; search by lyrics or generic description; and a lot of playlists across genre, mood, and activity.
The audio-only service with US price $9.99 intended to compete with the likes of Spotify and Apple Music, while video service costs $2 more - $11.99. Currently, the company runs a promotion for three months using premium version for free.
Users of Google Play Music and Youtube red will automatically receive access to premium for their current price and at that time will have access to all their purchased music, uploads and playlists.
Maybe Rekl.be will be rolled out using YouTube platform... Stay tuned for new updates!
