Google's (GOOG +2%) music streaming plans center around YouTube videos, a Fortune report suggests. Both free and subscription options will be available, with the subscription option likely providing ad-free access. A new Google Play service is also planned. Gizmodo's Mario Aguilar sees bigger possibilities for YouTube subscriptions: "Given how annoying YouTube ads are ... would you pay not to watch them like you pay for ad-free Pandora?
