YouTube Music

YouTube launched specialized mobile apps for kids, gamers and now for music lovers. YouTube Music replaces the music section from the regular YouTube app and provides a better interface for playing music. There are no comments, you can switch between the video mode and the audio-only mode, the autoplay feature is enabled by default and you can't disable it.

"With YouTube Music, you'll get a completely new type of experience, designed to make discovering music on YouTube easier than ever. No matter where you start in the app, the music will never stop. Every song you play or artist you choose will take you on an endless journey through YouTube's music catalog. (...) The home tab will recommend tracks just for you and create personalized stations based on your tastes," informs the YouTube blog.

You can download YouTube Music from Google Play Store and Apple App Store, but only in the US. If you're not in the US and you manage to install the app, you won't be able to use it without a proxy/VPN service.

YouTube Music works even better if you use YouTube Red, so you get the YouTube Red features for free for 14 days. No ads, background audio, offline music.

  1. Is there any plans for YouTube Music to work on the web at music.youtube.com ? Also no comments? I agree that comments shouldn't be front and center but I think a comments section would be appreciated by artists so they can still get feedback.

    1. For now, there's http://www.youtube.com/music, which shows some of the content from the app, but no recommendations. I assume YouTube Music makes more sense on mobile devices, but I expect to see some of its features added to the desktop site.

  2. This is what a perfect balance between form and function looks like. Find out why Galaxy S7 edge and S7 are the best yet. It's not just a new phone. It brings a new way of thinking about what a phone can do. You defined the possibilities and we redefined the phone. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Rethink what a phone can do.Rubber sheet
