YouTube rumored to be launching a music subscription service in 2018

YouTube rumored to be launching a music subscription service in 2018

This would be the company's third attempt to break into the music streaming market. Warner Music Group, one of the world's three major record labels, has already signed on, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private talks. Also, the music labels those have been pushing for money from the video streaming site with Youtube's music service. Meanwhile, various app teardowns have earlier revealed a new "YouTube Plus" subscription tier that could be related to the upcoming service. The tech giant has been working towards launching a new service, which is why it merged the Play Music and YouTube Red teams in July. Rumors suggest the platform kept negotiating with Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment for over a year. Remix (not the final name of course) is aiming to compete with the music streaming giants, but with the additional elements of video as an extension of YouTube. It will probably be called Remix, and will bring together all the YouTube Red and Google Play Music subscribers. YouTube has been stuck in negotiations with Universal and Sony for more than a year. This service offered more benefits to the users, and they were soon put into subscription bundles with Play Music.

Apart from getting major labels on board, YouTube is also reaching out to artists seeking help to promote this new service.

This rollout is part of a massive global push that started over a year ago, TechCrunch reports.

The version Amazon presented had lacked next video recommendations, subscriptions and other features - but these were restored in November, when Amazon made the device present a more normal view of YouTube. There's Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and even Google's own option, Google Play Music. Executives have been disappointed in how YouTube Red failed to focus on the music aspect and instead centred on producing unique video content.
