YouTube is rolling out a strategy to try and fight fake news and misinformation in videos published to the site.
Would you be more likely to livestream if you could do it straight from your camera app?
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry wrote past year that the biggest threat to the music industry is "the value gap, the growing mismatch between the value that user upload services, such as YouTube, extract from music, and the revenue returned to those who are creating and investing in music".
YouTube's upcoming subscription service is said to be a "necessary counterweight" against Apple Music and Spotify, who are now the leading online music services that generate significant revenue for the industry.More news: France urges European Union to impose sanctions on Iran over Syria role

About 33 percent of small businesses lack the means to create a video ad, thus deterring them from advertising digitally, a Lucid Research report said. "We feel strongly that after they get done going after guns, they'll continue to ban and erase content that falls in line with conservative ideologies like they have already demonstrated with the deletion of anti-abortion videos and the like". "Once we do that, trust me, all that noise will be gone and articles people write about that noise will be gone", Cohen said. "Everyone is drunk on the growth of subscription".
Doing a quick Google search, you'll find many videos demonstrating how to watch videos ad-free on the platform. Plus, numerous apps in our MP3 music downloaders list come with built-in ad blockers for YouTube. It now has 71 million subscribers. "Video ads are an authentic and engaging way to reach your customers and show them what makes your business unique through the power of sight, sound and motion". The service provides 30 minutes of ad-free listening just for viewing a 30-second ad.
The feature is now only available in Chrome but YouTube has plans to bring it to other browsers.
Mr. Cohen's words may not have been the best move in marketing the new music-streaming service YouTube will launch.
