YouTube Will Launch New Music Streaming Service in 2018

10 December, 2017, 02:33 | Author: Bridget Leonard

At the moment, Spotify boasts over 140 million monthly users while Apple Music has over 30 million subscribers.

YouTube hasn't had the same success as Apple or Spotify in convincing people to sign up for its paid music services, though it's not for lack of trying.

YouTube will launch a new music streaming service in early 2018. YouTube's music streaming service Remix is still set for a March 2018 debut, with more information to follow in the upcoming weeks.

"Music is very important to Google and we're evaluating how to bring together our music offerings to deliver the best possible product for our users, music partners and artists". It's attempted three such services in the past, including Google Play Music, YouTube Music Key, and YouTube Red, none of which have gained much traction.

The new service could help appease record-industry executives who have pushed for more revenue from YouTube.

The new service, called Remix, is planning to have "Spotify-like on-demand streaming" as well as "elements from YouTube, such as video clips".

The report adds that Music is one of the most popular and sought-after genres of video on YouTube and it attracts over a billion users in a month. Echo holders will also able to listen to Music Unlimited on their smart speaker.


According to the initial report YouTube is in talks with multiple record labels including Sony Entertainment Group, Universal, and Merlin which is a collective of multiple independent labels.

Still, music videos account for a majority of views on the YouTube platform.

However, the service will require a few things before you can make use of it.

The Amazon Music Web Player and the apps for iOS and Android will now have English, German, French, Italian, Spanish or Japanese display languages.

The release of Remix wasn't such a big surprise, as many rumors were already circulating about it.
