    We have a YouTube daily-double for you today. First up, the YouTube arm of Google will be launching a paid music streaming service by the end of this summer. Supposedly, YouTube partnered with "hundreds of major and independent" music labels for the new service. YouTube reps supposedly said,

    Not all the music labels are too happy about this though as there is a darker side to this idea. Supposedly, Google plans to block the YouTube content of record labels who don't get on board with Google's new program. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out. It doesn't seem very Googley of Google to be strong-arming the music industry just to get their way, but they have done it before. Of course, it's also possible this report's sources are inaccurate, so we will keep an eye out.

    Speaking of keeping an eye out, the second big YouTube story of the day regards the use of YouTube live streaming on the Chromecast. Previously, being able to live stream content to your Chromecast only worked from your computer. Google has added some new functionality to the device though. Google updated the Chromecast so now you can push live events from YouTube straight to the TV screen via Chromecast on your mobile device. Handy!
