YouTube reportedly launching its own paid music subscription service

YouTube is launching its own music subscription service, because YouTube users love to pay for stuff. The service could launch as early as this December and is expected to compete with sites like Spotify and Rdio—though YouTube’s added video content could obviously make it stand out. Like its competitors, YouTube’s music service would have both free and paid tiers, with the paid tier being commercial-free. Sources also claim that the service would integrate Google’s Play Music All Access, which is owned by YouTube’s parent company, Google, lets users build personalized radio stations, and recommends tracks to users based on their likes and dislikes.

All that being said, YouTube hasn’t yet officially confirmed any of this. A spokesperson told Variety that, while the company is “always working on new and better ways for people to enjoy YouTube content across all screens, and on giving partners more opportunities to reach their fans,” that the company has “nothing to announce at this time.”
