If you’re like me, then you use YouTube to watch music videos, listen to songs before I decide to buy them, or listen to those old hits. Lately, YouTube has sort of been a replacement for Pandora for me because I don’t have to worry about skipping limits and the related songs are usually better than what Pandora plays. Now YouTube is offering their own paid music subscription service called YouTube Music Key. Don’t get too excited though, because it is still in BETA mode and you will need an invite to start using it. For those of you who take advantage now you will only have to pay $7.99 a month, with the first 6 months free. Otherwise, it will be $9.99 a month.
YouTube has also unveiled a new system update that adds a new menu option just for music that features music videos, playlists of songs (my favorite feature) and songs you should listen to based on your history. In the future, you will have the option to play full albums, and see an artist’s full discography.
