Google announced their brand new music streaming service in the middle of the night, and they're going with YouTube Music, not YouTube Remix.

In addition, the access to entire collection of YouTube Originals including Youth & Consequences, Step Up: High Water, and Cobra Kai. In 2014 it launched YouTube Music Key also for a monthly fee of $9.99 but it never gained much traction.

YouTube Music will be offered in free and paid tiers, with the free version being similar to Spotify's free offering where users can listen to music for free but will have to put up with ads.

The new YouTube Music experience will be available on May 22.

When it launches, the YouTube Music will run on a "reimagined" mobile app and brand-new desktop player.
