Starting Tuesday, YouTube will be rolling out its YouTube Music platform, the site’s new streaming music service. According to the announcement, there will be a Premium ad-free version that will cost $9.99 per month and include background listening and downloads.
The free version of YouTube Music will have TrueView skippable ads as well as non-skippable ads running in-stream. Google says there are no plans at the moment for any specialty ad products specific to the new streaming platform.
YouTube says its new streaming service will offer “… official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio, plus YouTube’s tremendous catalog of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos… all simply organized and personalized.” It will also come with a new mobile app and new desktop player designed specifically for the music-listening experience.
