YouTube is gearing up to launch a paid music streaming service called Remix in March next year. If yes, which service do you prefer, and why? Google Play Music launched in 2011, and YouTube Red video just previous year, but this would be YouTube's first real attempt at their own music streaming subscription service since 2014's YouTube Music Key (which would turn into YouTube Red).

The new service, referred to internally as Remix, would include Spotify-like on-demand streaming and would incorporate elements from YouTube, such as video clips.

If we go back and talk about other services, Google has launched many subscriptions in the past.

"Music is very important to Google and we're evaluating how to bring together our music offerings to deliver the best possible product for our users, music partners and artists". Once they fully satisfied with the UI of this service, they can go ahead and subscribe the appropriate plan. And record company executives have been criticizing Google for not being able to monetize and compensate them properly, given that a huge number of YouTube users "listen" to music videos on the service.

Some other reports say that in order to provide official contents to this service, Warner Music Group has signed with a few prestigious channels such as Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group. The company is also reportedly negotiating with a consortium of independent labels called Merlin. Explore "Home", highlighting the latest releases, chart-topping hits by trending artists selected by Amazon Music curators; "Recommended", featuring tailored music suggestions built from Amazon's recommendations technology; and "My Music", where customers can find their own playlists and all music downloaded for offline playback on mobile devices anywhere they go, even without an internet connection.
