There are plenty of music streaming services out there - from Spotify and Deezer to Google Play - all providing millions of tracks to users on a subscription basis. And now you can access a new streaming service on YouTube called Music Key.
Why would you want another way of streaming music, especially when it comes from the same company as Google Play? Well it's all about one thing - choice.
YouTube has billions of videos, just waiting to be experienced. And in many cases you'll be able to find versions of songs, strange covers and live mixes which could likely never appear on something legitimate like Spotify. Music Key gives you access to this wealth of content, and even curates them under different playlists, all with the intention of creating streams which fans will want to listen to.
Music Key will also allow you to download videos from YouTube for offline play and removes all adsand you'll finally be able to listen to music from the service while your screen is locked - something the app didn't allow in the past. The service is currently in Beta (with invites going out to some users) and will cost just €10 a month when it launches, and you'll also get Google Play Music bundled as well.
