In 2015, YouTube Red has launched as a way to get a better YouTube experience than what was the offered in the free version. YouTube Red gave access to ad-free videos and all new original shows. YouTube Red has now being replaced by YouTube Premium, and its definitely worth checking out.
On 29 August 2018, YouTube Premium expanded to 4 more countries. As YouTube Premium rollout continues, it has now been confirmed that the service is available in four other countries namely, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg. Recently Google launched YouTube and YouTube Premium. One of those is streaming music service that offers features similar to what you will expect in the Google Play music. The other one is streaming music service, with the bonus of an ad-free Youtube experience. Google has so many names for so many functions. It makes everything very confusing.
Think about YouTube Music as a competitor to Apple Music or Spotify. Users can stream music, sign up or watch music videos on YouTube. There are two plans. One free, ad-supported plan and a $9.99 program for those who want background playback and ability to download music without the ads. There is an app for Android and iOS. YouTube Red is now YouTube Premium. You must be remembering YouTube Red? It is no more now. The ad-free Youtube service now is called YouTube Premium.
What is YouTube Premium?
YouTube Premium includes everything a Youtube contains. Music subscription- ad-free streaming, content which is downloadable, background playback and an ad-free Youtube experience and access to the Youtube Original content. You can also gain the ability to download YouTube videos for viewing them online. Youtube premium is priced higher than the YouTube Music. It costs $11.99 per month.
What about the Play Music?
It is included already. If you sign up for the YouTube Music or the YouTube Premium, you will also have access to Google Play Music. But Unfortunately, Music library and the playlist remain separate in two services. Google is now working towards merging the two, and they will be able to move forward with one solution.
