YouTube plans to charge $2 more for its premium service, as it includes YouTube Music service along with its original shows.
YouTube appears to have pressed the button on the blog post earlier than expected, after industry pundit Bob Lefsetz published his latest daily letter about a demo of the new service given to him by Cohen.
If you're a Google Play Music subscriber, Google says "you get a YouTube Music Premium membership as part of your subscription each month". However, the leak from Lefsetz doesn't mention Play Music anywhere, so we'll have to wait for the official announcement from Google on its future.
Google Play Music, the other subscription streaming music service from the same parent company as YouTube, will also be going away eventually.
Nawaz Sharif rejects NSC's condemnation of his Mumbai terror attack remarks

Recode this evening detailed the upcoming relaunch of YouTube Music. Spotify is the No. 1 paid streaming service with around 75 million subscribers, and Apple Music recently passed the 50 million mark. With the video network taking the lead on the new joint offering, a revamped YouTube Music is launching today. "It's a little bit of an art and not a science, because you might be using YouTube to research something, and we really want to be playing things you want", he said.
YouTube said that the service will feature "a reimagined mobile app and brand new desktop player that are designed for music", with "thousands of playlists, the official versions of millions of songs, albums, artist radio and more, in addition to all the music videos people expect from YouTube". It's the replacement for YouTube Red, including ad-free, background and offline access to all YouTube content, including original shows, and a YouTube Music subscription included. If we convert American pricing to Canadian, it could cost about $15 or so per month (which includes YouTube Music). Further down the line, it will expand to Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. YouTube Premium, formerly YouTube Red, will ask for a higher $12 a month commitment in exchange for a totally ad-free YouTube and original content.
YouTube Music will be launched in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea on Tuesday. If you already subscribe to YouTube Red, your price stays the same.
