YouTube Is Said to Plan New Paid Music Subscription Service

YouTube plans to introduce a paid music service in March, according to people familiar with the matter, a third attempt by parent company Alphabet catch up with rivals Spotify and Apple Inc.

Just yesterday news broke that YouTube is looking to launch a new streaming music service coming up in March of 2018, and although there is still plenty of detail about the service which hasn't been revealed there is enough out there that is being rumored that makes it possible to start considering whether or not this would be a decent option compared to some of the other alternatives out there. However, the actual launch still depends on some factors.

According to Bloomberg, YouTube has already signed a contract with Warner Music Group and is in a talk with Sony Music Entertainment, Merlin, and Universal Music Group, and some other group of independent labels. Before the music streaming service can go online, YouTube has to settle some deals with some major music labels.

In seems that these are not the only labels which are in talks with YouTube.

The new eUFS storage is also said to read 42,000 IOPS (input/output per second) and write 40,000 IOPS for random operation. The controller chip also helps by speeding up the process that converts logical block addresses to physical blocks.

Paid services from Spotify and Apple Music have spurred a recovery in the music business, which is growing again after nearly two decades of decline.

Google earlier this week again cut off access to YouTube on Amazon devices such as the Echo Show and the Fire TV stick. The latter, which was originally expected to focus on music became more invested in original video projects.

The display language for the music streaming service will be available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. And, we personally don't prefer Google's Play Music either for myriad reasons. The Google Play service will disappear as a result of this launch. Standard YouTube attracts over a billion views every month, and the majority of the content digested is music.

"Music is such an incredible global connector, and with Amazon Music Unlimited we've been able to give listeners access to an extensive catalog with the added experience of using their own voice to hear music in so many ways with Alexa", Amazon Music VP Steve Boom said.
