YouTube May Offer a Music Subscription Service
Rumors are yet again circulating surrounding Google implementing a solid subscription model into YouTube. The new service, which is slated to be known as YouTube Music Key, will offer ad-free music, audio-only playback, and offline playback for $9.99 per month, which includes a 30-day free trial for new customers. A subscription to YouTube Music Key will likely incorporate Google’s current music subscription service, Google Play Music All Access, though the service is expected to be rebranded to Google Play Music Key. By combining both services together, Google could present quite a value for potential customers who are looking for yet another option within the music subscription category.
It is not currently known when YouTube Music Key will come to fruition, but it’s likely to occur in the near future as Google already has control of the domain for the rumored service.
