Last month, we reported that Google was reserving URLs related to the name “YouTube Music Key“. This seemed to be the name of YouTube’s upcoming streaming service, and some recently leaked screenshots confirm this. Android Police have posted a slew of YouTube Music Key screenshots. For $9.99 a month, users can watch music videos offline or play them in audio-only mode, without ads. Over 20 million tracks are available, including live videos, covers, and remixes.
YouTube Music Key exists separately from Google Play All Access, which is being renamed Google Play Music Key. Is Google going out of their way to pick the most terrible names possible? However, for the $9.99-a-month price tag you get a subscription to both YouTube Music Key and Google Play Music Key. Google has declined comment.
