The new Google Youtube Music streaming service is available for some users now. It comes in two varians for ad-free service. As for a normal user it comes for $9.99 per month and for YouTube Premium users it comes for $11.99 per month. The premium subscription include the original video content for the users. If the user has already subscribed for the Google Play Music, the user will also get the YouTube Music subscrition along with that membership.
The user interface for the applications seems to be user friendly and has a restructured user interface as compared to Youtube. Google mentioned that there is an added advantage to the users who use Youtube Music, as the users will get the Official versions of songs and along with that it will also have covers, remixes and live versions.
Google also promises that it will have some Google AI’s feature, where the users can specifically go with their choice of music. T. Jay Fowler head at Youtube’s music said that “We found there are a lot of people on YouTube who love music but who find it hard to listen to and discover new music; they’re under-served by what’s going on, they characterize it as too much work, streaming services have too much choice.” As the personalization will give the users their choice of customization.
“So our product tenet is, it’s all here. We have video, we have licensed audio, we have shared cultural moments, we have Saturday Night Live performances. We have playlists, albums and tracks, but we also have video. We know what time of day it is, what the weather is, we have some sense of pattern. It’s really adapting to what you’re doing on a daily basis” said by Fowler. The access is limited for certain areas in United States, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. The new Youtube Music will be available for Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom in the forth coming weeks.
