YouTube Music Premium is a paid membership for $9.99 per month.

YouTube said that the service will feature "a reimagined mobile app and brand new desktop player that are designed for music", with "thousands of playlists, the official versions of millions of songs, albums, artist radio and more, in addition to all the music videos people expect from YouTube". So essentially this is what is happening, YouTube Red will now be split into YouTube Music and the YouTube Premium.

YouTube Music will be available since May 22nd in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and South Korea.

YouTube Premium contains background and offline, ad-free YouTube.

"The days of jumping back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube are over, explained Elias Roman, Product Manager of YouTube Music".

In reality though, it's likely to be the sheer breadth of music available on YouTube that will provide much of the appeal.

YouTube Premium is the new name for YouTube Red, and Google is doing something nice for existing Red subscribers by not asking them to pay the new higher price.

"YouTube in general is where most music is consumed". It seems that YouTube Music will tap the wonders of natural language processing (NLP) to let you find music based on a vague description.

YouTube has announced that it's breaking up its YouTube Red premium subscription service into two more specialised offerings. Similarly to market leader Spotify, YouTube Music will have an ad-supported free version and a version without ads, which will cost $9.99 a month.

The main game-changer with today's announcement is this: Globally, whether you're on your own or at a party, you will now be able to listen to and watch all your favorite music within a single application.
