YouTube launches new streaming music service in Ireland
Company also unveils paid-for YouTube Premium service
YouTube Music Premium, which costs €9.99 per month, offers background listening and downloads in addition to removing ads.
The service offers an ad-supported free model and subscription-based YouTube Music Premium, which costs €9.99 per month. The paid-for version offers background listening and downloads in addition to removing the ads.
One of the strengths of YouTube Music is Google’s smart search; if you can’t remember the name of a song, you can still hunt it down by using a description or some of the lyrics.
YouTube is offering a three-month trial of YouTube Music Premium to its users. Subscribers to Google Play Music will automatically get access to the premium product.
The video-sharing site is also making YouTube Premium available to Irish customers, which combines YouTube Music Premium and access to ad-free, offline and downloads across the entire YouTube catalogue, plus the YouTube Originals content.
YouTube Premium is available for €11.99 per month.
