Last month, we reported about YouTube s plans on launching a subscription-based music streaming service of its own. Though details were scarce, a teardown of the YouTube for Android app by Android Police now sheds some light on this forthcoming service.

The teardown reveals a Music Pass streaming service, which is likely to offer users with unlimited streaming of millions of songs along with support for offline syncing and background playback. This service is also said to be ad-free. Additionally, the code also hints at a subscription-based video service, wherein users will be able to save videos offline viewing. But these videos will only be saved for a period of 48 hours.
There s no word on what kind of subscription model Google is likely to introduce for these services or when it is likely to launch them. Also it is difficult to understand why Google wants to introduce two new services, which sound so similar to Google Music All Access and Play Movies and TV shows.
