YouTube launches music subscription service

YouTube will launch a music subscription service next week.

YouTube Music Key will provide a music and video catalogue to smartphone and computer users. The on-demand service will allow subscribers to listen to music without commercials. YouTube Music Key users will be able to send text messages while listening to music, as well as store music for offline listening.


The service will provide music from major record labels Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group, as well as independent labels.

YouTube Music Key is starting with a promotional monthly fee of $7.99, which will increase to $9.99 per month.

YouTube Music Key is competing with the popular music streaming website Spotify. Recently, Taylor Swift removed her highly-anticipated album “1989” from Spotify’s catalogue due to royalty allocations.

YouTube is owned by Google. YouTube Music Key subscribers will be allowed access to Google Play Music.
