YouTubeA recent rumor puts YouTube, arguably the most important video medium available, behind the scenes of a new music subscription service. Allegedly to join the likes of [easyazon-link asin=”B008RBZA4A” locale=”us”]Spotify[/easyazon-link], [easyazon-link asin=”B005V1N71W” locale=”us”]Pandora[/easyazon-link] and [easyazon-link asin=”B005HK052Q” locale=”us”][/easyazon-link], YouTube is looking to capitalize off of their ever-increasing prolonged visitor traffic, as well as the site’s similarly growing amount of music videos.

Supposedly if the video hosting social media platform decides to go through with the plan, the service run down could look something like this: two subscription tiers, free and paid. A free subscription may bring users unlimited access to full streaming tracks, while a paid version may additionally bring an ads-free experience, as well as offline streaming.

Google hasn’t commented on the potential music service as of yet. Though, with other apps running the same game doing so well these days, it seems a likely story for YouTube. Either way, we’re expecting to learn further details, if any, in the near future. Stay tuned.
