- YouTube Music
Are you not planning to pay for YouTube Music? Or do you not intend to use YouTube Premium coming with YouTube Music? If so, you will still be able to load up the web’s app, iOS, and Android. The free tier runs with Google smart speakers as well, though you can only get moods and mixes, not particular albums or songs.
In the leading apps, the users will get the usual option of popular and algorithm-generated playlists, which YouTube Music serves up for the user: All-Time Laid-Back Hits, Acoustic Pop, Top 100 Music Videos, Good Vibe Rap, Dance Hotlist, a choice of newly released music, and more.
You can skip around inside these playlists, picking out the queue’s other songs, and jumping forward and backward. You will hear some occasional ads, just like on regular YouTube, yet they are quite infrequent. Also, you can skip some of them.
Looking for specific songs and artists works fine, too—when you desire to enjoy a particular track at a certain time, you can. It is possible to queue up full albums as well as playing them in order. Plus, you can make custom playlists with your choices of songs, though again, some occasional ads will interrupt your listening.
It applies to the web client as well as mobile apps. Yet, when the apps for iOS and Android entail, you cannot sync the songs for offline playback. Either, you cannot listen in the background; thus, once you close the app, then the music will stop.
YouTube Music brings a strong free offering, providing you with more music and flexibility compared to what you might expect from one streaming service, which you do not pay for—yet then, it builds on top of YouTube, which allows you to listen to countless music for free.
