Kind of, sort of. The opposite is also true - Red subscribers will keep paying $10 per month for ad-free YouTube and Play Music. Even if users are unable to remember a song or video name, the company claims YouTube Music can display the most accurate results from descriptions on search.
Because Google knows where you go every day, when your next flight is and what websites you visit when you're at home, it hopes to sell you on a new kind of music subscription service. Current subscribers don't have to worry about big changes or losing their playlists or downloads anytime soon, but it's unlikely that the Google Play Music branding will stick around once the new YouTube Music takes over.
YouTube Music is launching in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea next Tuesday (22nd May), with other markets - including the United Kingdom - following in the "coming weeks". YouTube Red members won't be charged extra. The audio-visual app promises "music videos and deep cuts that you can't find anywhere else" suggesting that exclusive content will differentiate YouTube Music from its competitors. Google is also taking this opportunity to rebrand: YouTube Red will become YouTube Premium, and will offer ad-free, background and offline viewing across all of YouTube, as well as access to all YouTube Originals.
When YouTube's new music service launches on May 22, it'll be the second music streaming service offered by Google and YouTube's parent company, Alphabet.
