Google is transitioning its Play Music service into YouTube Music

Google is relaunching YouTube Music, its take on Spotify, as a Premium service for $10 per month, with membership devoid of video and recasting of YouTube Red, and eventual replacement for Google Play Music.

While Google Play Music, the erstwhile streaming music service from Google will be transitioned to YouTube Music, the company has revealed it will be closing gaps between the two services over the coming month, to migrate some of the features users have grown to accustom with, like the cloud-based MP3 storage locker.

YouTube Music as expressly made for music, will stream official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio plus YouTube’s tremendous catalog of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos that you can’t find anywhere else - all simply organized and personalized.

And the new YouTube Premium, with the original shows and ad-free viewing of the current YouTube Red, will cost $12 a month. But, Google Play Music subscribers who live in countries where YouTube Red operates will automatically be migrated to YouTube Premium at their current $10 per month price.

The YouTube Premium service is ad-free, with background and offline access across all of YouTube, as well as access to all YouTube Originals including: Cobra Kai, Step Up: High Water and Youth & Consequences.

Google will bey launching the reinvented YouTube Music app in the US, South Korea, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand, followed by another 14 countries in the coming weeks.
