Google Play Music, YouTube Red may be headed to India soon

Google’s much awaited music streaming app, Google Play Music, might be making its way to Indian shores soon. According to a Reddit user’s post, the web version of the app has become partially accessible in the country. Search results for some popular tracks and albums have started showing prices in Indian Rupees (See images below).

Images of these search listings were also posted by the Reddit user. As per some of the price listings, it seems like a single song may cost around Rs.15, while album prices vary between Rs. 120 to Rs. 175, depending on the popularity, novelty of the album.

Apple Music Android update: Now save music to SD card for offline play

Another user on the same Reddit thread pointed out that YouTube Red might also be heading to India. YouTube red offers an ad free YouTube experience, with the ability to save videos for offline viewing, as well as the ability to play videos in the background. However, the Reddit user’s assumption is purely based on a notification about YouTube Red recieved by the user (See image below). Currently Indian users have an option of purchasing YouTube Red Originals, which are movies and series created by some of YouTube’s top creators.
