After the company has been criticized for not paying artists and recording companies enough, they are looking to silence all the "noise" by forcing listeners to pay for a subscription.

In a statement provided to Bloomberg Technology, a YouTube spokesman said that the company "routinely makes updates and adjustments to our enforcement guidelines across all of our policies".

Paid online music services are the fastest growing segment in the U.S. Presently YouTubers will have the capacity to simply tap on "Go Live" button on the YouTube header to begin their stream.

Speaking about the new service, Cohen stated that YouTube's music platform would have "the best of Google Play Music". Direct camera app integration for YouTube live stream will make it easy for smartphone users to host their videos live on YouTube.

"There's a lot more people in our funnel that we can frustrate and seduce to become subscribers".

Music industry professionals are now looking at YouTube the same way that Spotify was treated before it experienced exceptional growth. So, to convert users, Cohen shared YouTube's new strategy.
