YouTube is preparing to release a new version of its music service – and at the same time prepares to charge more to watch original content like the sequel of Karate Kid. What is the reason behind this decision?

Two years ago, YouTube released YouTube Red as a service that provides subscribers with on-demand music more or less similar to Spotify or Apple Music, as well as access to original content created for the service only. YouTube Red has also removed ads from the largest video platform in the world.

All that cost $10 per month. But now it changes. Next week YouTube launches YouTube Music – an updated version of the existing music service that is functionally identical, but comes with extra features like custom playlists based on your YouTube story.

This service, which is supposed to launch a test release on Tuesday, will cost $10 a month after a trial period. The same service will eventually replace Google Play Music, a compelling music service that Google maintains separately, while trying to bring YouTube Music forward.

Now YouTube intends to charge extra $2 for the rest of YouTube Red, which will be renamed YouTube Premium, but will also require you to pay for YouTube Music. That’s if you want to watch YouTube-free original content like Cobra Kai, now you’ll have to pay $12 a month instead of $10.

The $10 for YouTube Music removes ads from the music videos but not from the rest of YouTube. It also lets you download music for offline listening and listening to background music while doing other things. An amount of $12 a month on YouTube removes ads from across YouTube, as did YouTube Red.

YouTube Premium will launch in United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and South Korea, with Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom “coming soon” before other markets follow throughout the year.
