Amazon Music Unlimited Is Now Available In 28 New Markets

Critics call out Google's 'hypocrisy&apos in Amazon spat

On Friday, Amazon announced that it was expanding both the Echo and its online music service, Amazon Music Unlimited, to 28 new countries. If you love to have such a platform from where you can explore all the videos of your favourite artists and other music, YouTube is launching its Music Service platform very soon. Meanwhile, various app teardowns have earlier revealed a new "YouTube Plus" subscription tier that could be related to the upcoming service. Previously, Google introduced audio-only streaming service Google Play Music in 2011 and YouTube Music Key in 2014, which was later morphed into YouTube Red in 2016.

Paid services from Spotify and Apple Music have spurred a recovery in the music business, which is growing again after nearly two decades of decline. The new streaming service, which is said to be called Remix, will include Spotify-style on-demand streaming along with YouTube-only elements like video clips.

Labels like Warner Music Group has already signed for the service, while the discussion with Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group are apparently underway for more than a year. YouTube has already been contacting artists for help promoting the service.

Are you excited about the Echo family and Amazon Music Unlimited coming to your country? Merlin, for instance, which gathers together more independent labels, is also among the negotiators. According to a Bloomberg report citing sources familiar with the development, YouTube is prepping to launch a paid music service in March next year. After this, the service was rolled out to a few more markets like the U.K., Germany, Austria, and Japan.

Some other reports also suggest that, YouTube will merge the YouTube Red's subscription with this Remix platform so the users who have subscribed to YouTube Red will be able to explore the platform simultaneously.

As per the report, YouTube will have to overcome various hurdles in order to meet the March 2018 launch date of the music subscription service. Vevo, owned by Universal and Sony, distributes music videos for their acts.
