YouTube is entering the highly competitive Music streaming service with a platform of their own called YouTube Music. YouTube is launching a music streaming service, offering both videos and audio tracks, in an attempt to compete with the likes of Spotify and Apple Music.

YouTube Music will combine millions of “official” tracks with the vast catalog of rarities and remixes uploaded by YouTube’s users. Like Spotify, it will offer a free, ad-funded app, alongside premium subscriptions costing $9.99 per month.

It will launch in five countries, including the US and Mexico, on 22 May. The Google-owned company said YouTube Music would come to Europe “soon”. Music streaming is a big industry and the key players are making big profits yearly.

According to a data analysis by BBC, streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music have become the biggest contributor to the music industry’s coffers for the first time ever.

In total, streaming generated $7.1bn (£5bn) in 2017, more than sales of CDs and vinyl. The number of people subscribing to a streaming service topped 176 million, up from 112 million a year before. The boom helped record labels chalk up a third consecutive year of growth, after 15 years of decline.

According to the IFPI, which represents the global music industry, the music market was worth $17.3bn (£12.4bn) last year, up from $15.7bn the year before. However, it noted, this is only two-thirds of what the industry made at the peak of the CD era in 1999.
