Amazon Music Unlimited is coming to new markets across Europe and Latin America, including Peru, Poland, Portugal, Chile, Colombia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, and Uruguay. Also, the music labels those have been pushing for money from the video streaming site with Youtube's music service. We can say that its a smart speaker that enables you to go online only by your voice command.

As this wasn't as successful among the users as its competitors, the company tried again with YouTube Music Key in 2014, which turned into YouTube Red in 2016.

YouTube has inked a deal with Warner Music Group and is in discussion with Sony Music Entertainment, Merlin, and Universal Music Group, a group of independent labels. This paid music streaming service is internally called "Remix", and, is said to be launched in March next year. Remix (not the final name of course) is aiming to compete with the music streaming giants, but with the additional elements of video as an extension of YouTube. YouTube has been contacting artists for help by promoting the service.

Though the music industry had hoped Red would be devoted to music, YouTube has positioned it as a home for original video projects like science-fiction comedy "Lazer Team" and a reboot of "The Karate Kid".

Some other reports also suggest that, YouTube will merge the YouTube Red's subscription with this Remix platform so the users who have subscribed to YouTube Red will be able to explore the platform simultaneously. And, we personally don't prefer Google's Play Music either for myriad reasons. But Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of Nest's latest products. This way, YouTube might overcome the criticism accusing it of not offering enough benefits to artists and labels by streaming their music for free, but with ads.

According to Bloomberg, YouTube will need to figure out several issues to meet its March 2018 launch date. Let's see how impressive this new Google's service would be!
