YouTube is currently experimenting with a new subscription model in some European countries which allows users to block ads for the price of €6.99 per month. It is dubbed "YouTube Premium Lite".
Today, a new subscription service called Scroll has launched to the general public, giving users the ability to browse a wide range of online publications without ads while still supporting them.
Google has announced that customers in the United States will be able to begin subscribing to Google Play Pass this week. The service gives users full access to apps without ads or in-app purchases.
Apple has finally announced the acquisition of the music detecting service, Shazam. The finalisation of the acquisition comes just weeks after the European Union said the deal could go ahead.
