YouTube is rolling out a new service "YouTube Music" on 22 May to seperate the music and film components on the Google-owned video-sharing platform.
YouTube's music and video subscription services have been in a bit of mess lately.
At the core of the new YouTube Music is a "reimagined mobile app and brand new desktop player that are designed for music".
Meanwhile, Play Music members in other countries that do not have YouTube Red will gain access to Music Premium when the rebranded services launch in the upcoming 14 nations.
YouTube Red is now available for $10 per month and comes bundled with a Google Play Music subscription. For $11.99 per month, you get ad-free YouTube, access to original content, downloads, and background play.
This is YouTube's second attempt at a music app; the previous version was launched at the end of 2015.
Revenue from music streaming services overtook sales of CDs and digital downloads for the first time past year, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.
While you can enjoy YouTube Music free of charge, this will mean having to endure ads. The launch is the latest attempt by Google, YouTube's parent company, to penetrate the streaming market. The service will have a personalized home screen where it can provide recommendations based on the user's listening behavior.
Google has upped the ante in the music streaming market by announcing YouTube Music, a music streaming service which includes ad-free music, background listening, and downloads. According to Google, the service will be available in US, Australia, New Zealand, New Mexico and South Korea in May.
