YouTube launchs new music streaming app

YouTube recently launched its new music streaming app, “YouTube Music,” during an event in Los Angeles. This latest development is designed for those who use YouTube as the main source of playing music, while this streaming app works closely with YouTube videos, it allows you to switch between the audio only screen and the stream music while you are still able to access other apps.

According to YouTube, this service will be free to use, though this free version will includes ads services, which can be remove by signing into YouTube Red membership access.¬†The app features a strong emphasis on music discovery, so once you select a song it will begin a playlist of related songs, which sounds like it will be great for those who don’t want to craft their own playlists. You can tap a “love” button on any song to influence the following songs in the queue, similar to Pandora.

YouTube Music is also integrated with YouTube’s just-announced¬†ad-free video subscription service, YouTube Red, which costs $9.99 per month on Android and desktop, or $12.99 for iOS. A YouTube Red membership extends across other YouTube services including YouTube Music, allowing subscribers to sign in once and enjoy an ad-free experience across YouTube Music, Google Play Music, and YouTube Gaming, its Twitch competitor.

If you use YouTube Music with a YouTube Red membership, you’ll also be able to save music offline.
