YouTube Music relaunch coming next week

Combined, the new music service and premium video subscription replace YouTube Red, a service originally launched in Australia nearly exactly two years ago.

The revamped service offers the same functionality as its existing music service and adds more features like personalised playlists based on your YouTube history and other usage patterns.

If you subscribe to YouTube Red, YouTube's ad-free music and video offering that now costs $9.99 a month, you might soon find your wallet a little lighter.

According to the Google-owned company, the service will include "official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio, plus YouTube's tremendous catalog of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos".

Google was rumoured to be launching a new YoTube music service which combined traditional YouTube and Google Play Music sometime this year, and now its finally here.

To extend the features of YouTube Music Premium beyond the music app, we're soon introducing YouTube Premium, the new name for our YouTube Red subscription service.

YouTube also said it will soon launch what it is calling YouTube Premium. The company has now officially announced its plans with the actual start of YouTube Music scheduled for next week. But YouTube was made for video, not just music. For those who are already members of YouTube Red, their monthly bill will not be going up.

YouTube Music will replace Google Play Music as the primary player on Android devices.

While you can enjoy YouTube Music free of charge, this will mean having to endure ads. Subscribers to the service can also play video in the background on mobile devices (which is nice for podcasts) and you'll be directly supporting creators. What you want to focus on is YouTube Music and YouTube Premium. If we convert American pricing to Canadian, it could cost about $15 or so per month (which includes YouTube Music). YouTube Premium will initially launch in the four countries above plus South Korea.

And, finally, just because it's fantastic and awesome, here is a photo of Newton standing with Glover, the young Lando himself. While that would make a hell of a movie, it's a story that's already been told, so it's not likely to head to the big screen.
