Google unveils YouTube Music
Google has announced one more service that has a lot in common with YouTube but by using it you will be listening to music, hence the service is called YouTube Music. The name is close to the original but YouTube Music comes with several features you will not find in the video-sharing web site.
The first thing that is different is that YouTube Music works a lot like Spotify and offers recommendations that follow users’ preferences. In addition YouTube Music will help users find new music but one downside is that people will not be able to create playlists. To compensate for this YouTube Music will provide users with a new music compilation every week with the compilation called My Mix. It will follow music that is preferred by users so thus people will be able to find new bands and tracks that they like. Moreover YouTube Music can create endless playlists – all users have to do is select a song or an album/artist to start listening to this playlist.
YouTube Music offers several ways to use it – the first one is free but you will have to deal with ads here and there. You can also subscribe, which will allow you to enjoy the service with no ads but you will have to pay USD 10 for Android users and USD 13 for iOS users. Still, this money will give you access to more than 30 million tracks and you will also be able to enjoy concerts, shows, karaoke songs and more.
Unfotunately YouTube Music is available only to US residents as of now.
