YouTube has music streaming service in the pipeline

News: 12th March 2013 by Louise Dodgson under Record Labels, Selling & Distributing Your Music

A service set to compete with the likes of Spotify is set to be unveiled later this year by YouTube. Already a primary platform for sourcing and listening to new music, YouTube will also be launching a music streaming service and we're sure Spotify, Pandora and Vevo will be keen to know what plans Google-owned YouTube have up their sleeve. 

News so far confirms that YouTube have already been in talks with record labels, and according to reports the service is likely to be a very similar model to that of Spotify where a catalogue of music is available to listen to for free, with additional features becoming available for those who sign up for a monthly subscription.
