Amazon Echo availability expands to 80 more countries

Amazon Echo availability expands to 80 more countries”

Remix (not the final name of course) is aiming to compete with the music streaming giants, but with the additional elements of video as an extension of YouTube.

You might be able to find music on YouTube, but the company has made a decision to release a dedicated platform only for music streaming.

Google had stopped Amazon's Echo Show speakers being able to play YouTube videos in September, on the basis that the retailer had altered the way the software worked. In comparison, Spotify now has 140 million monthly users, 50 million of which are paying for a monthly subscription. This paid music streaming service is internally called "Remix", and, is said to be launched in March next year. For instance, major record labels state that the growth would be more significant if it is not for YouTube as they criticize the same for not compensating them appropriately given the number of people who use the site to listen to music. We should know more about Remix in the coming months. YouTube has already been contacting artists for help promoting the service. Moreover, YouTube is also in talks with Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group as well as Merlin.

Fire TV owners have reported that trying to watch YouTube clips now prompts an alert warning them that they will lose the functionality on 1 January.

The merger of the two teams was the first step towards the creation of an entirely new service to cater to the music-centric chunk of users.

Back in July this year, YouTube's head of music confirmed that Google Play Music and YouTube Red would be merged to create a new streaming service.

Amazon Music Unlimited gives you access to 40 million songs, new worldwide playlists, personalized playlists and stations, new releases, and unlimited ad-free streaming.

As per the report, YouTube will have to overcome various hurdles in order to meet the March 2018 launch date of the music subscription service.

At launch, Amazon Music Unlimited will be available at three plan options with prices varying per country.
Let's see how impressive this new Google's service would be!
