YouTube has made its new music streaming service available in 12 more countries.
According to YouTube, more than 1 billion music fans visit the platform each month - this is probably why they have decided to create a platform dedicated to streaming music. YouTube Music has recently been launched in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and South Korea.
YouTube Music has been officially launched in 12 more countries, as the video-sharing giant enters the music streaming market.
The full list of new countries to get YouTube Music are as follows: Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
In addition, anyone in these countries can sign up to YouTube Music — the company’s ad-free service, which includes access to the site’s original content catalogue. YouTube Music will host YouTube’s huge catalogue of music videos, albums, remixes and covers. Alike to Spotify, users can sign up on a free ad-supported basis and similarly to Apple Music, it is also offering a three month trial of YouTube Music for free. The ad-free version, which also allows for offline downloads, costs £9.99 per month.
Users are also able to subscribe to YouTube Premium, which hosts exclusive tailor-made content for £11.99, which will also include the ad-free YouTube Music service.
