YouTube is introducing a new music subscription service called YouTube Music Key. For $9.99 a month, the new service will boast full album streams and offline listening, in addition to Google Play Music access.

According to Twitter’s CEO, big changes are coming for the social network’s users this next quarter. Private messaging will be overhauled, but the most buzz from his announcement came from the option for pre-populating the timelines of new users. The goal will be to get new users actively involved sooner and more consistently by removing the daunting task of finding people to follow.
