YouTube is currently in the process of finalizing a Music Subscription Streaming Service. The offer is akin to that of a Spotify or Deezer, but with video and more.
Already mentioned earlier this year, the rumor about the arrival of a music streaming service on YouTube now puts back on center stage through the website Billboard. This indicates that the video platform by Google is currently in the process of finalizing its offer by the end of the year.
Described as “a Spotify with the video,” the service would give a free offer for access to the entire catalog of the offer, but only online and with advertising and a premium offer for a caching songs for offline listening and no advertising. Other restrictions may apply to the free version, as a limitation of monthly listening for specific people close to the project.
According to Billboard, Google has signed agreements with record labels which is needed to launch its service. With a billion unique visitors per month, YouTube could become a serious competitor for streaming music services like Spotify if properly installed, Firefox or Qobuz provided to offer attractive offers and rates, perhaps around 10 dollars per month. Google at its side “have nothing to announce at this time.”
