YouTube Music Subscriptions Brings Change To Google Play Music And YouTube Red

YouTube execs have finally announced the long-awaited revamp for YouTube Music that they say will eventually replace Google Play Music. In interviews with Recode, they revealed the new YouTube Music will soft-launch next Tuesday with a $10 subscription packages. The focus will be on personalization that tries to learn what music you like. This will tie into the Google Assistant AI, and pull from a subscriber's YouTube history to serve up suggestions. Google Play Music will remain for now, but the plan is to "close gaps" between services like YouTube Music's lack of a music locker for users to upload their tunes before GPM goes away at some unspecified point in the future. Meanwhile, the YouTube Red section will transition into YouTube Premium, a pay walled, ad-free video experience available only as a $2 add-on for YouTube Music.
