Apple Music competitor? YouTube to launch music streaming service 'Remix' in March

Apple Music competitor? YouTube to launch music streaming service 'Remix' in March

YouTube Music would be a standalone music streaming platform which requires a paid subscriptions.

The new service, called Remix, is planning to have "Spotify-like on-demand streaming" as well as "elements from YouTube, such as video clips".

Google wants a piece of the pie that Spotify and Apple Music are now enjoying. Not only has YouTube been trying to negotiate new deals with Universal and Sony for more than a year, but it also has a talks with Vevo looming early next year.

As this wasn't as successful among the users as its competitors, the company tried again with YouTube Music Key in 2014, which turned into YouTube Red in 2016. The new product, internally called Remix, is expected to make its debut by March 2018.




Alphabet ( GOOGL )'s Google unit is reportedly picking a fight with Apple ( AAPL ), Pandora ( P ) and Spotify with a new music streaming service days after squaring off with Amazon.com ( AMZN ). If yes, which service do you prefer, and why? It requires you to opt out a subscription plan and you will become a premium user of the service. YouTube has been contacting artists for help by promoting the service. Once they fully satisfied with the UI of this service, they can go ahead and subscribe the appropriate plan. This way, YouTube might overcome the criticism accusing it of not offering enough benefits to artists and labels by streaming their music for free, but with ads. Moreover, YouTube is also in talks with Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group as well as Merlin.

According to an article by Bloomberg, music executives have been disappointed with meager revenue from YouTube Red.

The Amazon Music Web Player and the apps for iOS and Android will now have English, German, French, Italian, Spanish or Japanese display languages. We should know more about Remix in the coming months. Let's see how impressive this new Google's service would be! You can drop out your feedbacks into the comments section as well. After this, the service was rolled out to a few more markets like the U.K., Germany, Austria, and Japan.
