YouTube Music & Premium Services Launched in 17 Countries


Towards the end of May we reported on YouTube’s brand new Music service and the transition of YouTube Red to YouTube Premium, which at the time had just began rolling out early access in the US, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. For those who were disappointed to learn that the service was not yet available in their region there may be some good news in store, as YouTube announced this week the official launch of YouTube Music across 17 countries.

Countries in which the service is now available include the 5 aforementioned regions as well as Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

YouTube sum up the new YouTube Music platform as follows:
  1. It’s ALL here. Not just music videos, but official albumssinglesremixeslive performancescovers and hard-to-find music you can only get on YouTube.
  2. Recommendations built for you. A home screen that dynamically adapts to provide recommendations based on the artists and songs you’ve played before, where you are and what you’re doing. Chilling at the beachNeed some motivation? The right music is right here, built just for you.
  3. Thousands of playlists across any genre, mood or activity. Try “A Dose of Sun” for brighter tunes on a cloudy day, “The Pop Hotlist” for the biggest hits around the world or “Distrito Latino” for Latin pop hits of the moment.
  4. Smart search so we’ll find the song, even if you can’t remember what it’s called. “That space-themed Spice Girls song in the desert.” Here you go. You can also search by lyrics (even if they’re wrong). It’s “Hold me closer, Tony Danza,” right?
  5. The hottest videos. We’ll keep you on top of what’s hot! The hottest videos in the world right now are right there, on their own dedicated Hotlist screen. Today in the U.S., it features “Nervous” by Shawn Mendes, in the U.K, it’s “Drippy” byIAMDDB, and in France, it’s "Fais moi la passe" by JUL.
  6. Ad-free listening, downloads and more. Get YouTube Music Premium to listen ad-free, in the background and on-the-go with downloads. Plus, your Offline Mixtape automatically downloads songs you love just in case you forgot to. For a limited time, get three months free of YouTube Music Premium here, ($9.99 per month after, $14.99 per month for a Family Plan)*.
Users of the YouTube Premium service, formerly known as YouTube Red, will have YouTube Music included as part of their subscription, although the cost for this has now risen to $11.99 per month.
