Youtube is soon going to launch their new paid monthly subscription service called YouTube Music Key. So Robert Kyncl, the online video service’s head of content and business operations, said at the Code/Media conference.
This new plan will make it possible for paying users to watch videos offline and to use the Youtube app on their phone even when they are using other apps at the same time.
Right now the beta version is being tested and it is available by invitation.
According to Robert Kyncl the new plan will not change anything for the existing users unless they want to use the paid plan which will start at $ 7.99 per month.
The free videos on Youtube, often accompanied by short commercials, attract more than 1 billion users a month. The new plan will make some significant changes to Youtube and many users are looking forward to be able to use the “new” Youtube which will launch around April this year (2015).
