YouTube Music: 5 Things You Need to Know Before Signing Up

AndroidPIT Jessica LG V30 0633

The newest music streaming app of Google is a direct competitor to Spotify, and it has both a new desktop player as well as a redesigned application, both are designed keeping playing music as a primary objective. If so, then you'd be correct: it's called Google Play Music and it's still around today.

Music videos are a huge part of YouTube, and many of us play music from YouTube without even watching, so it makes sense that Google would work on YouTube-as-music-service.

First, YouTube Music is now rolling out to some users in the U.S., Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. Elias Roman, a product manager for Google who has handled both Google Play Music and YouTube Music, said that both services will remain intact for now.

Google also confirmed to The Verge that purchasing music and playing music stored locally will be added at some point.

YouTube Music Premium is priced at $9.99 per month in the United States, which is the same price as Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music. As a result, YouTube Premium will cost $11.99 per month - that's $2 more than YouTube Music Premium, and $2 more than YouTube Red was. In other words, it doesn't sound like they're just slapping a label and a price tag on the existing YouTube content you know and love - it'll be that stuff along with the usual amenities of a streaming music service.

The refund is valid on iPhone 6 or later models and on batteries replaced between January 1, 2017, and December 28, 2017. The iPhone battery slowdown saga began when GeekBench discovered some older iPhones were running slower than expected.

Finally, using YouTube Music can add some annoyances to the standard YouTube experience. Ives believes music streaming is the "low-hanging fruit" that could help YouTube quickly build up a subscriber base before it invests further in resource-intensive original programming: "It's their Trojan horse".

How to get the YouTube Music app?

Google told Google Play Music users that "nothing will change" in a press release announcing the YouTube Music rollout earlier this week, but that appears to only be true in the short term.

As previously stated, the plan is for YouTube Music to replace Google Play Music sometime in 2019.

Did you read all of this and think, "Wait, doesn't Google already have a streaming music service?" The app may not license every album by a given band, but it can make up for that to an extent by letting users watch and download music videos from that band that have already been uploaded to YouTube alongside the music in their streaming library. Apart from a great collection, another important factor is the usability.
