YouTube launches premium services in the UK

YouTube Music and YouTube Premium come to UK and 17 other countries - GSMArena.com news

You can get a free trial of YouTube Music Premium here, and YouTube Premium here.

YouTube Music has just been launched by Google with the internet giant boasting the app has been created to "make the world of music easier to explore and more personalised than ever".

Alongside YouTube Music Google is also launching its new YouTube Premium service. It costs $11.99 for individual users with a Family Plan at $17.99. For the first time, YouTube is also detailing that a Family Plan is available for $14.99 in the USA and Canada. That's something Apple Music and Spotify don't offer yet.

Google has announced that both services are now officially available to everyone in he U.S, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, South Korea, Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

In case you happened to miss all of our previous coverage of YouTube Music, just know that this is supposed to be Google's future of music. As the name suggests, it's YouTube, but for music, featuring music videos, full album, live performances, covers and so on. No problem - you can search for them instead and the app should surface the song you're looking for.

In addition, YouTube Red - the ad-free, paid-for version of YouTube - has been renamed YouTube Premium and include access to YouTube Music.

Signing up for YouTube Premium is as easy as can be, and to get started, here's what you need to do. Crucially for many people, this allows you to hear tunes without the app being kept open and visible on your mobile, as well as the ability to download tunes and playlists for offline listening.

YouTube is the internet's biggest video site, with more than 1.8 billion accounts tuning in every month.

A dedicated Hotlist screen has the hottest new videos, as you'd expect from YouTube, with today's fare including IAMDDB, George Ezra and Nao.

How much does YouTube Music cost? A streaming service is only as good as it's technology, and I have steered clear of using YouTube for music because of this very reason for years!

It turns out there is a very good reason the apps are now co-existing: it's all about making sure that all functionality that Google Play Music users now enjoy is eventually ported over to YouTube Music - as it stands, this just isn't the case. For that reason, it's hard to see YouTube Music proving all that popular without a subscription.

The app's recommendation engine (so long as a user opts-in) monitors factors such as where they are in the world, what time it is and what the weather is doing and serves music it deems appropriate as a result.
