Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Echo reach 28 more countries


Alphabet ( GOOGL )'s Google unit is reportedly picking a fight with Apple ( AAPL ), Pandora ( P ) and Spotify with a new music streaming service days after squaring off with Amazon.com ( AMZN ).

Back in July this year, YouTube's head of music confirmed that Google Play Music and YouTube Red would be merged to create a new streaming service.

According to the people familiar with the matter, YouTube has already got Warner Music Group - one of the major record labels in the world - on board. Music is one of the most popular genres of video on YouTube, which attracts more than a billion users a month. The new streaming service, which is said to be called Remix, will include Spotify-style on-demand streaming along with YouTube-only elements like video clips. In comparison, Spotify now has 140 million monthly users, 50 million of which are paying for a monthly subscription. The video streaming site has been involved in negotiations with Sony and Universal for over a year regarding the same, the report adds.


The version Amazon presented had lacked next video recommendations, subscriptions and other features - but these were restored in November, when Amazon made the device present a more normal view of YouTube.

Amazon also said Friday its Music Unlimited subscription streaming service is available in 28 additional countries.

"Music is very important to Google and we're evaluating how to bring together our music offerings to deliver the best possible product for our users, music partners and artists". On top of this YouTube has also already signed Warner Music Group and is in talks with music artists to promote the upcoming service as well and get the name out there so potential subscribers are aware of the option. However, a launch date in March will remain largely dependent on the other two major companies. Once you select the plan, you will be able to explore a wide range of music videos with different categories as the giant will offer the simplest User Interface of this service. Let's see how impressive this new Google's service would be!
