YouTube delay Music Key launch but Apple push ahead in Russia

The launch of one of the most anticipated new streaming platforms - YouTube Music Key - has been delayed until mid-September, as the Google-owned firm extends its beta test period. The news comes just one week after Spotify added video to its app. 

Apple plans to launch its streaming service in Russia. However, the sluggish economy and competition might become obstacles for a successful launch. The business daily Vedomosti  says that Russia is going to be among the first countries where Apple will launch its music service, and negotiations with local labels about expanding digital rights to streaming are in progress.
