YouTube remains the No. 1 streaming service for music globally, although most of its 1.5 billion monthly users listen and watch videos for free. If you don't want ads, plus also want extra features, you've got YouTube Music Premium to subscribe to.

Freed from those duties, YouTube Red will be transformed into YouTube Premium and offer what subscribers have always equated YouTube Red with: ad-free original content.

We've known for months that Google was working on a version of YouTube to compete directly with music streaming platforms like Apple Music or Spotify.

Google's YouTube is launching a new version of its music service and also getting ready to charge more on its original shows like "Cobra Kai", Recode reported on Wednesday.

Recode is reporting on Wednesday that the new service is actually going to be called YouTube Music (apparently YouTube likes this branding), and it will have a soft launch on Tuesday, May 22.

With YouTube Music, you have free and paid tiers.

While a music streaming service is nice we're really excited for YouTube Premium. It will be extended to the other countries in the upcoming weeks. However, the leak from Lefsetz doesn't mention Play Music anywhere, so we'll have to wait for the official announcement from Google on its future. "The days of jumping back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube are over", said Elias Roman, Product Manager, YouTube Music.

But YouTube has a spotty track record with music subscriptions in the past. For example at the gym, YouTube Music will suggest some beats to set the right mood for the workout, while at the airport, it would recommend something relaxing. Users who have opted for YouTube Premium will get free access to YouTube Music Premium service as well.

And what of Google Play Music? Soon, it will be its own service, complete with a new desktop player. For now, at least, those subscribers will still be able to access all their purchased music, uploads and playlists in Google Play Music. Given the amount of love millions of people have for both music-streaming services such as Spotify and YouTube videos, YouTube Music is likely to prove popular when it begins rolling out in more markets globally.
