Google breaks its premium YouTube Red by introducing Youtube Music streaming Service and Youtube Premium

-YouTube Premium for original video content, costing $11.99 per month.
These new services will be launched On Tuesday,May 22nd in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea for starters before expansion into 14 more nations.
Youtube Music will also replace the existing Google Play Music, but anyone who already has a Google Play Music subscription and Youtube Red will get YouTube Music and Youtube Premium as part of that membership.
The YouTube advantage,is that it will combine all the official versions of songs with access to “thousands” of related playlists, remixes, covers, live versions, and of course, music videos.The streaming service will look to use Google Assistant, the smartphone app fostered by the tech giant, to be able to make suggestions for what the consumer would prefer to listen to.
In the online music space, YouTube holds down the fort as the No. 1 source due to the consumption of music videos, however, did not hold up to the paying subscriptions as the competition like Apple or Spotify.
Across the streaming world, Spotify is receiving mixed reactions to their “Hateful Conduct” policy,TIDAL is under scrutiny regarding accurate streaming figures and payout to labels and Apple Music has announced reaching 50 million users.
