YouTube Music Key Is Rolling Out Now

We knew that YouTube Music Key would start rolling out this week, and it looks like it's in full force at this point. A bunch of us here at AP already have it, and from the look of our tip box, most of you do as well. If not, well, I'm sorry. Here's a quick look at what you're missing.

As expected, we've got offline playback (you can choose to save the videos in 360p or 720p), background playback, and ad-free music videos. If you have it on mobile, then it's also available on the web, so there's that, too.

At this time, it looks like the rollout is limited to Play Music All Access subscribers, especially considering it just seems to show up for users without any additional signup.

Google Announces YouTube Music Key, Includes Background Playback, No Ads, Offline Viewing, And More

Guys, it's happening (....gif). The rumored YouTube music service that we've been hearing about for months is finally a reality. It's called YouTube Music Key, and it looks pretty great.

So here's the gist: it'll cost $7.99 a month (initially, at least - the price will eventually jump to $9.99), and includes full albums, background playback, offline viewing, and no ads. No ads. It's worth eight bucks a month just to get rid of the ads. That price also gets you a subscription to Google Play Music All Access, just like we suspected it would.

The question, however, is whether or not current All Access subscribers will automatically get Music Key as well.

[Update: Now Live] Google Play Music All Access Is Now Available In 9 New Countries In Latin America, Including Ecuador, Guatemala, And Venezuela

Update #1 (8/12/14): It looks like Google deleted the tweet embedded below. Between that and the lack of an update to this support page, someone might have pulled the trigger early. But if those countries don't have access yet, they probably will sometime soon.

Update #2 (8/19/14): After a false start last week, the Play Music expansion now seems to be live. The official Google Play country availability page has been updated to reflect this as well.

Update #3 (8/19/14): It seems like the previously announced Uruguay expansion didn't make it into this round, but Google decided to replace it with Venezuela.

PSA: Today's The Last Day To Take Advantage Of Google Music All Access For $7.99 Per Month

If you haven't already abandoned one of those other streaming music services for Google Music All Access, today's the last day to do so for the introductory price of $7.99. As of tomorrow, July 1st, the price will jump up to the standard $9.99 per month, which rivals that of All Access' main competitor, Spotify. Unfortunately, All Access is US-only for now, so international users will have to wait for Google to roll the service out globally – hopefully they'll offer the same $7.99 incentive as it becomes available in more locations.

For those who may be on the fence (or have never subscribed to an all-you-can-eat music streaming service before), here's what you're missing out on:

  • Unlimited streaming of millions of songs
  • Personalized radio from any song or artist
  • Unlimited skips in radio stations (!)
  • Smart recommendations based on your taste and listening history
  • Ad-free listening
  • Add any album to your personal library
  • Save any song, album, or artist for offline playback on mobile devices

Personally, I jumped from Spotify to All Access on launch day and haven't looked back.

Google Play Music Update v5.0.1041J Introduces Features That Were Surprisingly Absent

When Google unveiled Google Play Music All Access earlier this month, they introduced the option to supplement our existing music collections with the millions of songs available through their service. What they didn't tell us was that those songs weren't as easy to remove from our libraries as they were to add. Sure, the web interface made doing so simple enough, but that isn't much use when a particularly jarring track makes itself known during the commute to work. Thankfully, this problem is solved. The latest update adds the ability to purge unwanted tracks from our libraries without having to fire up a browser.
