  • Google to Battle Beats With YouTube Music Key

    Today, Google lifted the veil on its long-awaited music streaming subscription service made possible through YouTube.

    Dubbed YouTube Music Key, the subscription service serves up streaming music straight from the video sharing behemoth free of ads... but for a price.

    Google confirmed today that YouTube Music Key will cost $7.99 per month (initially for the promo period) before jumping to $9.99 a month. Subscribers, we're told, will also be able to enjoy jams from Google Play Music.

    Lunched in beta this morning, Google is optimistic about the future of this new service.

    "Youíve asked us for ways to listen to music without ads, to keep playing music videos even if you lock the screen or start using another app, and to play music even if youíre not connected to the Internet," reads today's formal announcement. "Thatís why today we're introducing YouTube Music Key beta, a monthly subscription service... that will give you all thatóads-free music, background play and offline viewing."
