Avatar By Le Williams | 2 years ago

YouTube enters into a global extension of its newly designed Music and Premium services. The expansion will be available in 17 countries, including Canada, Russia, France, and several other European nations.

Presently, services have been launched and widely accessible for users in current markets.

The service offers millions of official song versions along with thousands of playlists, artist radio, and YouTube’s collection of remixes, live performances, covers, and music videos.

Revamped apps are available for Android and iOS, as well as the web through a new desktop client. With Smart Search, users can find songs by lyrics and descriptions, with a number of filters built-in.

Additionally, YouTube has revealed its Family Plan is available for $14.99 in the U.S. and Canada. Five additional members of a household will be able to join.

Current YouTube Red and Google Play Music members (including family plans) in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico will automatically receive access to YouTube Premium at their current price. Google Play Music subscribers in all other countries will automatically receive access to YouTube Music Premium at their current price as it becomes available there.

The video platform is offering a free three-month trial, while Google confirms that existing Play Music subscribers will get access to YouTube Music Premium at their current price.
