YouTube Is Negotiating the Release of the Music-Streaming Service Remix

YouTube will launch a new music streaming service in early 2018.

Well, according to a report, Google is now planning to launch yet another paid music streaming service in a bid to rival Apple Music and Spotify.

"We believe Google is likely positioning itself to launch a product similar to the Echo Show, bringing together voice and display, and that this type of product will ultimately only be successful if YouTube access is provided", Youssef Squali, a SunTrust Robinson Humphrey analyst, said in a note to clients. If you love to have such a platform from where you can explore all the videos of your favourite artists and other music, YouTube is launching its Music Service platform very soon. Moreover, it will provide more revenue to music labels that have been pushing for more money from the video site.

UAE 'surprised and disappointed' over European Union blacklisting
The EU originally screened a total of 92 jurisdictions and once the list is compiled it is expected to be continuously updated.

Furthermore, people familiar with the matter also said that Remix "would include Spotify-like on-demand streaming and would incorporate elements from YouTube, such as video clips".

Do you stream music online? Previously, Google introduced audio-only streaming service Google Play Music in 2011 and YouTube Music Key in 2014, which was later morphed into YouTube Red in 2016. Further, you can access the service on the web, iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Echo devices, and FireTV. It is still unclear whether the giant will make its free edition or not, however just like Google Play Music, the Youtube Music Service will also have its own free trial version so that people can give it a try without having to subscribed for the plan. Apart from this, the company is in talks with independent label consortium Merlin to be linked in it as well.

The release of Remix wasn't such a big surprise, as many rumors were already circulating about it. And record company executives have been criticizing Google for not being able to monetize and compensate them properly, given that a huge number of YouTube users "listen" to music videos on the service. Let's see how impressive this new Google's service would be!
