This morning, the folks at YouTube are singing a merry tune thanks to the launch of YouTube Music Key. This obviously music-oriented add-on comes in two sizes; free and ad free for $9.99 a month.
You heard it, YouTube is offering a subscription service. And though the subscription fee will only include music options, it’s a safe bet that if the beta test goes well, YouTube will try subscriptions site-wide.
When you log on to YouTube, or launch the YouTube app, you’ll find a new tab marked Music. Here you’ll find trending music videos and top music by genre. What’s more interesting are the YouTube mixes like “Music for Every Mood” which includes playlists like “Swag Out” and “Morning Motivators”. I had to check out the motivators and they’re right! These songs will get you going; U2 – Beautiful Day , Pharrell Williams – Happy, Katrina & the Waves – Walking on Sunshine and (for some odd reason) Bon Jovi – You Give Love A Bad Name.
