There has been no doubt that YouTube is working on a music streaming service. In fact, it is expected by the end of this summer. It has faced a ton of speedbumps do to design faults and trouble with negotiations between record labels. Today, Android Police has uncovered YouTube Music Key. The launch of this new service would also include a rebranding of Google Play Music All Access to Google Play Music Key.
YouTube Music Key would feature offline playback even when an internet connection is not present. And the audio-only mode in offline playback allows you to keep using YouTube Music Key when using another app or when the display is turned off. As expected, this paid music streaming service would be free of advertisements. Ads would no longer appear across a subscriber’s phone, tablet, computer, or television.
Like the current Play Music All Access, YouTube Music Key’s monthly price would be $9.99; however, a thirty-day free trial would get things started for new users. But YouTube Music Key’s price will also include the new Play Music Key. Current subscribers of Google’s music streaming service would automatically be ushered into the new services without a hitch. YouTube Music Key would build upon traditional music streaming services in that it has expanded content such as footage from concerts, covers, and remixes. Android Police notes that “YouTube Music Key also promises to make suggestions for what to watch/listen to based on the other things you watch/listen to on YouTube.”
