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. Now, its music streaming service Music Unlimited and Echo lineup of smart speakers will be available in a number of countries in Europe and South America.
Google is hoping that third time's the charm if reports are to be believed that YouTube will be launching a new paid music subscription service by 2018. Called Remix, it will be a consolidation of their current services YouTube Red and Google Play Music. In the year 2011, Google has released Google Play Music app with free and subscription options.
Alphabet Inc. has in the past launched Google Play Music, YouTube Music Key, and its failure lead it to launch Youtube Red in 2015, which had just 1.5 million subscribers a year. Google also got on to this bandwagon of music streaming services with Play Music, however, it hasn't been able to catch up with other services as much as Google would have liked. The service focused more on videos than music, however.
The new service, internally referred to as Remix, would include Spotify-like on-demand streaming and would incorporate elements from YouTube, such as video clips, the people said. We can say that its a smart speaker that enables you to go online only by your voice command.
However, the service will require a few things before you can make use of it.
According to the initial report YouTube is in talks with multiple record labels including Sony Entertainment Group, Universal, and Merlin which is a collective of multiple independent labels. YouTube has already been contacting artists for help promoting the service. For the very same reason, the giant is combining all the other services and to come out with a universal one through the all new Remix.
