That service will offer the stock streaming experience, with rumors pointing to offline music playback support, customized playlists based on a user's listening history, and more. For $10 a month, YouTube Red mixed up ad-free streaming with original content, the latter of which may not be of much use for everyone.

Google's existing subscription offering YouTube Red, meanwhile, has been billed as an extension of the new music app. Graduating up is YouTube Music Premium, which for $9.99 a month offers background listening and downloads, without those pesky ads, a blog post explains.

Confused? Well, essentially YouTube has made it possible for customers to opt for music only.

YouTube has officially announced the launch of YouTube Music, or rather the relaunch of a revamped version of YouTube Music.

A couple of cool new additions worth noting here too: YouTube Music will finally gain a native desktop application similar to Spotify. YouTube Premium will initially launch in the four countries above plus South Korea.

YouTube wants to charge $2 more for its premium services.

Although YouTube has not revealed how many people subscribe to its services, the biggest competitor Spotify has more than 75m paying subscribers, followed by Apple Music with 40m.

YouTube Premium is rolling out in the same markets as YouTube Music, following the same schedule.
