YouTube Music and YouTube Premium are now available in Canada

YouTube Music and YouTube Premium are now available in Canada 

Since Google made the announcement a few weeks ago of splitting up its premium YouTube Red service into two new offerings – YouTube Music and YouTube Premium – many have been waiting patiently for these services to come to Canada.

Now it’s here. With YouTube Music, Google is attempting to compete with popular music streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora. But what is different about this new music streaming service is that it is “built on top of all the music on YouTube that you can’t find anywhere else,” according to YouTube Canada. It is also highly personalized and makes it very simple to organize your music in one place.

YouTube is promoting this service as the place where “it’s ALL here.” Not only will you get music videos but official albums, singles, remixes, live performances, covers and hard-to-find music you can only get on YouTube.

Other features include providing recommendations of music based on what you have listened to, your location and even what you are doing. YouTube Music also offers numerous playlists reaching into the thousands across any genre, mood or activity.

Another neat feature is smart search. With this, you can find any song, even if you can’t recall the title. Like searching for “that space-themed Spice Girls song in the desert” or by using a line from the lyrics.

This service will provide the hottest videos. The aim is to bring us videos that are the hottest in the world in a dedicated Hotlist screen.

The YouTube Music streaming service is available either for free with ads or for $9.99 per month or $14.99 per month for a Family Plan which includes up to six family members. YouTube is offering for a limited time, three months free of YouTube Music Premium by going here or one month for the Family Plan.

YouTube Music Premium is ad-free, plays in the background and comes with the download option. Additionally, Offline Mixtape automatically downloads songs you love just in case you forgot to.

Also starting today, YouTube Premium is available in Canada. This service provides members with the benefits of everything in YouTube Music Premium, plus YouTube Originals shows and movies. For a limited time, you can get three months free of YouTube Premium here, after, it’s going to cost you $11.99 per month or if you would like the Family Plan that will be $17.99 per month.
