Pandora, Spotify and others have a new competitor to watch out for, and it's a beast! Google just officially took the wraps off their YouTube Music service. Here's a quote with a description,
But we want to do even more to support artists and all the fans who turn to YouTube to discover music, so we’re making the experience even better with a brand new YouTube Music app. With YouTube Music, you’ll get a completely new type of experience, designed to make discovering music on YouTube easier than ever.

No matter where you start in the app, the music will never stop. Every song you play or artist you choose will take you on an endless journey through YouTube’s music catalog. A simple tap and you’re on your way, enjoying your favorite music and discovering new artists effortlessly. The home tab will recommend tracks just for you and create personalized stations based on your tastes.

The app also gives you complete access to one of the richest music catalogs on earth. You’ll be able to quickly find music videos, tracks, artists and albums, but you’ll also see all the remixes, covers, lyric videos and concert footage that YouTube has to offer.

The new service can be enhanced further if you are a subscribing YouTube Red member as well. For more details, check out Google's blog announcement here: Official YouTube Blog: A YouTube built just for music
