YouTube Premium and Music Premium are now live in 7 new countries

YouTube's paid offerings are expanding to more and more countries. After an initial launch in the US in June, they have now reached over 25 nations worldwide and don't seem to be slowing down.

  • Peru

Google posts guide to fix overlapping YouTube and Play Music subscriptions

It's been a volatile time for Google's streaming services. YouTube Red was rebranded as YouTube Premium in May and YouTube Music Premium was launched, which lacked some features found on Google Play Music.

UK users can now play tunes from YouTube Music on Google Home and Assistant

The switch from Google Play Music to YouTube Music hasn't been a very smooth one. Google is still ironing out the kinks, and one of the features that fell by the wayside was support for the new service on Google Home.

Only the US, Australia, and Mexico supported it until a couple of days ago, but the UK is joining them now.
