YouTube Music Has Launched on iOS and Android

YouTube have launched YouTube Music, their dedicated app for listening to the millions of songs on YouTube on iOS and Android.

“The official YouTube Music app takes you on a personal journey through one of the richest music catalogs online. Every song, album, artist, or genre you choose begins a non-stop station designed to help you find new tracks and rediscover past favorites. Just tap a song you love, and see where your music takes you.”


The new YouTube Music app isn’t just for listening to your favourite artists and is intended by YouTube to aid the discovery of new music using personalised recommendations, trending tracks and “non-stop stations designed for a different kind of discovery.” Once you press play on the YouTube Music app it will continue playing music after your selection has ended, much like YouTube’s auto-play but with personal music recommendations queued up for you. The best part is the customised station features are free for all users, not just YouTube Red subscribers.

YouTube announced their new music app with YouTube Red, their new $10 monthly subscription service launched a few weeks ago that offers ad-free viewing, background play, offline videos and more. YouTube have emphasised that subscribing to YouTube Red will enhance the experience of their new Music app as you can play music in the background of your device, watch ad-free, listen offline and even without video. In addition a YouTube Red subscription will also give you access to Google Play Music, Google’s music streaming service, and vice-versa when you sign up to Google Play Music.

With over a billion active users monthly, YouTube has paid out $3-billion to the music industry in it’s lifetime making it a highly profitable platform with a large audience for discovery.

YouTube Music is available for iOS and Android now.

You can get a 14-day trial for YouTube Red when you sign up to give ad-free viewing a go.
