New YouTube streaming service to replace Google Play Music; YouTube Red renamed

Google Inc.'s video-sharing platform YouTube plans to launch a music-streaming platform, ultimately replacing Google Play Music, Recode reported May 16.

YouTube Music is expected to have a soft launch May 22. The platform plans to introduce higher tariffs to watch original shows.

The revamped service will include new features such as a personalized playlist based on a user's YouTube history and will cost $10 per month following a trial period, Recode said. All ads will be removed from music videos.

YouTube Red, introduced two years ago as an on-demand music service that helped access original programming, will reportedly be renamed YouTube Premium and will cost $2 more. YouTube Music is not included in that offering.

Google is a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc.
