YouTube has finally taken their premium service and YouTube Music to new counties. The service (previously called YouTube Red) gives users access to YouTube content without any ads. YouTube Music also launched as a separate subscription, giving users access to music content on YouTube and via the app.
Today these subscription services are now avaialble in more countries, which include Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, South Korea, Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, United States, and the United Kingdom.
The services start with YouTube Music at €9.99 as nearly all of the top music streaming services. If you wish to get YouTube Premium, that is an extra €2.
Eventually YouTube Music will replace Google Play Music once the service has grown to reach feature parity.

YouTube Music product manager T. Jay Fowler stated that collections, playlists and preferences would be migrated
