Tech blog Android Police appears to have a big scoop on its hands: screenshots and details of YouTube’s long-planned music subscription service. Well, more details, given that some have leaked over the last year. The new report claims the service will be called YouTube Music Key, which will cost $9.99 a month after a 30-day free trial, and which will offer subscribers ad-free music, including audio-only listening and offline access. The screenshots in the piece appear to show some of the marketing blurb for the new service, with the promise of a 20m-song catalogue including “concerts, covers and remixes”, as well as this promise: “Subscribe to YouTube Music Key and get a free subscription to Google Play Music Key”. That sheds a bit more light on how Google’s two subscription services may interact – could there also be a Songza Music Key? – but details of a launch date remain open for speculation.
