YouTube Music, YouTube Premium expand to more countries

YouTube Music, YouTube Premium expand to more countries”

The company also overhauled YouTube Red (the original paywalled service) into YouTube Premium.

Google has a unique position with YouTube Music, since YouTube itself is home to countless music-related videos. The days of jumping back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube are over.

According to YouTube, YouTube Music will be available both as a standalone mobile app and a Web-based desktop interface that is designed for music streaming. YouTube Music will come with songs, albums, playlists (genres, mood, activity and language based) and artist radios, remix catalogs, covers and music videos. Additionally, YouTube is also offering a special introductory offer of 3 months of free YouTube Music Premium, so go ahead and try the service for yourself. YouTube Music is a different app altogether and unlike the YouTube app plays even when the app has been minimised. The good news is that those who do also get YouTube Music Premium for no extra charge.

As a welcome offer, and for a limited time only, music fans can get three months of YouTube Music Premium free.

March just keeps getting better for music lovers across the country when it comes to streaming services.

As in other countries, YouTube is talking up its localized playlists and music videos to woo customers. T-Series' YouTube channel primarily uploads music videos and movie trailers. "It's interesting to note how Indian artists have consistently claimed top spots over the last few months in the Global YouTube Top Artists chart", said Lyor Cohen, Global Head of Music, YouTube, in a statement. Therefore for us, with the launch of YouTube Music, all the emphasis is on the familiar and to make every user experience richer as they start using the service.

YouTube says that the paid subscribers of Google Play Music will automatically get access to YouTube Music Premium and they don't need to pay anything extra.

The YouTube Music app is available on both, Android and iOS, and can be downloaded off their respective App Stores. These services compete against each other amongst already existing rivals like JioSaavn, Gaana, Amazon Prime Music and Apple Music as well. Its YouTube Originals productions are also available to stream in India.

While it's not really that hard to find music to play on YouTube, it can get pretty inconvenient to shoehorn a service that wasn't built for that objective. Now, one can subscribe to YouTube Premium and watch videos ad-free, download more videos than ever and even play a video in the background if your phone supports picture-in-picture mode.
