YouTube music service will be called YouTube Music Key - report

Brand new details around YouTube's much rumoured music service may have surfaced if reports are to be believed.

Following Google’s launch of its streaming service, Google Play Music All Access, in 2013, it was rumoured that the company would also launch a new on-demand, subscription-based music platform around video giant YouTube.

According to Android Police, the new service will be called YouTube Music Key and Google Play Music All Access will allegedly be rebranded as Google Play Music Key.

It seems that Google has already reserved the domain name for YouTube Music Key, however further details of the aforementioned rebranding are yet to emerge.

Android Police report that the service will offer ad-free music, offline playback and audio-only playback allowing users to listen with the background or screen off. 

A 30-day free trial will be offered initially, with the full price of the service after the trial period to be set at $9.99.

In addition to on-demand audio tracks, users will have access to concert footage, remixes and full discographies.

Reports suggest that Google Play Music All Access users will be able to use the new service automatically. 

It is still unclear when YouTube Music Key will be launched, with Google said to be still negotiating with various licence-holders before their music can be included in the service.
