Called Remix, it will be a consolidation of their current services YouTube Red and Google Play Music.

Paid services from Spotify and Apple Music have spurred a recovery in the music business, which is growing again after nearly two decades of decline.

After nearly two decades in decline, the music industry is growing again amid a wave of consumers subscribing to streaming services.

In addition to Amazon Music Unlimited, the Amazon Echo is coming to the listed countries as well, which will provide support for voice commands such as "Alexa, play rock music".

The new product will have features found in Spotify like on-demand streaming, while also retaining YouTube's video streaming service. The device will arrive with Amazon's online music streaming service, i.e., Amazon Music Unlimited which is much simplified in the United States and many more countries.

Amazon also said Friday its Music Unlimited subscription streaming service is available in 28 additional countries. There's Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and even Google's own option, Google Play Music.

As this wasn't as successful among the users as its competitors, the company tried again with YouTube Music Key in 2014, which turned into YouTube Red in 2016.

The display language for the music streaming service will be available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. Additionally, you will also be able to stream out that particular music from the YouTube app. This way, YouTube might overcome the criticism accusing it of not offering enough benefits to artists and labels by streaming their music for free, but with ads.

According to Bloomberg, the company has already signed up Warner Music Group and is in talks with Sony and Universal Music. Apart from this, the company is in talks with independent label consortium Merlin to be linked in it as well.

However, the service will require a few things before you can make use of it. Let us know by leaving a comment below!
