YouTube's Subscription Service Plans Leak: Offline Play, Ad-Free, 20 Million Songs, $9.99 Per Month
Following a series of rumors about YouTube's paid subscription service, some concrete details have finally surfaced to clarify the matter.

The leak was unveiled by Android Police, who revealed that YouTube is gearing up to launch a YouTube Music Key streaming service, whether Google is preparing to rebrand Google Play Music All Access to Google Play Music Key.

Based on the exclusive screenshots, available here, here, and here, the new service will offer ad-free music, audio-only playback (for background or screen-off listening), as well as offline playback of about 20 million songs available in the massive database, roughly the same size as Spotify.

After the initial 30-day free trial, YouTube Music Key will cost users $9.99 per month. Furthermore, the price will include both YouTube Music Key and Google Music Key. 

The specific launch date is yet to be announced. Stay tuned for updates.
