According to Android Police, the new service will be called YouTube Music Key and when it goes live, it will be integrated into Google Play Music All Access -- its parent company's existing music downloads and streaming service -- so that subscribers will be able to stream either audio or video, a feature that none of its competitors currently offer. As well as being able to search tracks by artist or group, YouTube's existing preference engine, which offers new videos to watch based on past viewing habits, is also expected to paly a major role in helping users discover new songs. Although reports of Google's plans to offer a music streaming service via YouTube stretch back to the start of 2014, it wasn't until June that the company confirmed that the rumors were true.

This partnership opens up a new revenue stream that enables musicians to sell directly to 40 million fans at the moment they are most engaged and listening to a musician's song," said J Sider, Founder and CEO of BandPage. BandPage already allows solo artists and groups to set up a central profile and use that page to sell merchandise and promote upcoming events, but the new integration with Spotify takes things to another level and will offer social media savvy musicians in particular a host of creative opportunities.

A lockout could derail the new opera season, which is set to open next month.
