YouTube is rolling out early access to its recently announced music streaming service, YouTube Music. Do you want early access?
If you’ve read this far, you’re interested in gaining early access to YouTube Music. But before you go any further, we have to warn you: It’s not available all over the world. You need to live in one of the five supported countries that are part of the early access rollout. The United States, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, or South Korea. If you don’t, you could, of course, try using a VPN, but there’s no guarantee that would work.
In any case, if you do get early access, you will be able to enjoy the new AI-powered music streaming service that was announced last week, today. The service can either be free (but supported by ads), or you’ll have to shell out $9.99 for ad-free access. When YouTube Premium launches, you’ll also get ad-free access to YouTube Music, Google Play Music, and YouTube Originals at $11.99.
If you’re already a Google Play Music user, nothing will change. As Elias Roman, Product Manager at YouTube Music explains “you’ll still be able to access and add to all of your purchased music, uploads and playlists in Google Play Music just like always.”
