After slowly rolling out the service to some users in the US, Google today officially made the new YouTube Music available to everyone. The new streaming platform will take better aim at competing with the likes of Spotify and Apple Music by offering a blend of standard songs and corresponding videos found with Google’s machine learning technology. A new app and price coincide with the launch.
Initially, Google is making YouTube Music available to those in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, South Korea, Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. It’ll expand to other regions over time. It costs $9.99/month on its own and can be bundled with YouTube Premium (the new name for YouTube Red) for $11.99/month.
If you’re interested in giving YouTube Music a go, you can do so by downloading the new app from the Play Store or App Store for free. You can then sign up for a three-month free trial. You can also check out music.youtube.com for more information.
