Paid services from Spotify and Apple Music have spurred a recovery in the music business, which is growing again after nearly two decades of decline.

Amazon Music Unlimited, Amazon's full-catalog streaming service, today announces its expansion into 28 additional countries, offering a catalog of more than 40 million songs and thousands of playlists and personalized stations, hand-curated by Amazon Music experts, to millions more listeners around the globe.

The new service was internally codenamed as "Remix", featuring on-demand streaming with video clips along with other YouTube-like features. Besides, it is even fetching after artists to help in promoting the service.

Amazon quickly followed its U.S. launch by rolling out the service to Austria, Germany and the United Kingdom the following month, and Japan later. The latter, which was originally expected to focus on music became more invested in original video projects.

Back in July this year, YouTube's head of music confirmed that Google Play Music and YouTube Red would be merged to create a new streaming service.

YouTube hired former Warner Music executive Lyor Cohen a year ago to help oversee its music operations and serve as a liaison to the record business.
