Apple Music competitor? YouTube to launch music streaming service 'Remix' in March

YouTube will launch a new music streaming service in early 2018. YouTube Music would be a standalone music streaming platform which requires a paid subscriptions.

Overall, the Prime Video layout is relatively decent, although some users are experiencing issues with 5.1 surround sound and only getting 2.1 audio.

The new service, internally referred to as Remix, would include Spotify-like on-demand streaming and would incorporate elements from YouTube, such as video clips, the people said.

Do you stream music online?

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

It was reported that YouTube Red only had 1.5 million subscribers a year ago.


While services like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal etc have all reached various levels of success, Google Play Music and YouTube Red have not made huge dents.

This service is all set for launch in March, and has been named "Remix".

"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". If you really want to have all the music tracks and related videos at one place, YouTube's new Remix will soon going to fulfil all of your desires in no time. If yes, which service do you prefer, and why?

The display language for the music streaming service will be available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. Once they fully satisfied with the UI of this service, they can go ahead and subscribe the appropriate plan.

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. Moreover, it will provide more revenue to music labels that have been pushing for more money from the video site.

This move appears Google's counter to Amazon's decision not to sell rival products like Google's smart speaker, Google Home, among other devices, on its platform. Let us know by leaving a comment below!
