Google is taking a shot at music streaming services by introducing a new dedicated music streaming service under the YouTube branding. Called YouTube Music, Google’s new streaming service will be going live next week, and it will be offering subscription-based service similar to the rival services.

The service that will get launched on May 22 will be offering additional features including support for personalised playlists that will be based on the search history of YouTube users. It will also look into other parameters to curate the playlists.

Apart from the membership service, YouTube will also be offering free service of the YouTube Music, but you can expect the music experience in it to be hogged by ads. The premium service will have varying rates with plans to levy higher charge for original shows.

According to the details available, YouTube Music will be offering the paid membership that will come ad-free for $9.99 a month. Premium services available in YouTube Music, which also includes original shows, will be charged with an additional price of $2.

The service will be available as YouTube Premium subscription, which will cost $11.99 for the ad-free experience along with original shows including Cobra Kai, Step Up: High Water and Youth & Consequences.

To recollect, the YouTube Premium service is the revamped version of the YouTube Red subscription service. Existing Red members can continue enjoying the service in its new form under their subscription plan.

YouTube Music will get launched on May 22 in the markets of United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea. The service will be expanded to some other countries in the following weeks.
