Google Inc's YouTube is set to
launch its long-awaited paid monthly subscription
service called YouTube Music Key in a few
months, said Robert Kyncl, the online video
service's head of content and business
operations, at the Code/Media conference.

The beta version of the service is currently being
tested and is available by invitation, Kyncl said
at the conference in California, according to a
company spokeswoman.

"There is a subset of audience who wants more
things so they are used to paying for those. We
don't think it changes anything for existing
users," Kyncl said.

Google said in November the subscription for the
ad-free service will start at $7.99 per month and
will allow users to watch videos offline and listen
to music while other apps are working.
The plan would represent a significant change
for the world's No. 1 online video, whose free
videos, often accompanied by short commercials,
attract more than 1 billion users a month.
