YouTube Launches YouTube Red and Music App

Oct 22, 2015

Tuesday was a big day for YouTube. It announced a subscription streaming service, as well as a music streaming app. The membership is called YouTube Red and costs $9.99 per month for desktop, Android, and $12.99 per month on iOS. Eventually it will include access to exclusive content, and features a "save" feature.

YouTube also announced the launch of its Music app, which allows people who typically use YouTube as a source of music to choose an audio-only option and continue to listen to music while using other apps. Like most other streaming services it is available for free if you are willing to listen to ads.

Users can get rid of the ads by signing up for a YouTube Red membership.
