Introduction to Youtube Music Streaming

 Youtube Music is a full Music streaming service offered by YouTube. Yes it has the semblance of Google Music and who can really fault them considering that they're from the same developer? However, YouTube Music is more than just a Google Music lookalike. YouTube Music is mostly for streaming and is similar to the likes of Spotify and Apple Music but it's very clear that Google is working hard at making sure YouTube Music gives more than just a music streaming platform. For example there are new Discover New Music and Search options that bring you random music, music covers, live performances etc all to keep you enjoying great music.

 You'll notice that there's an Autoplay option that makes sure you don't run out of music that's from a similar list. The music keeps playing and you're sure to enjoy and find new music that you may ordinarily not find on other music platforms. Even though it's the YouTube music app, you can also access your playlist from your actual YouTube account and play videos with the option provided at the top of the home screen. These videos are usually very sharp and clear unless they do not have a video on the YouTube app. 

YouTube Music has a simple UI. All your favorite options are on the home screen through which you can get access to the music you've already downloaded. You can upgrade your free plan to YouTube Music Premium if you wish to enjoy your streams without any ad interrupting you.

Let's now go over some of the features of the app

  • You get millions of songs to choose from
  • You get music recommendations usually based on your current location. 
  • It has a simple user interface which is very attractive.


Is the YouTube Music app worth it?

 Imagine having an app on your phone that picks on the time of day and location you currently are at and recommending music for you that suits the mood, especially when you consider the fact that many other applications have such information about you. It's a thoughtful gesture if you think about it. More than that, if you're searching for music that you do not know the singer or writer and you have a lyric you can remember off that song, YouTube Music might just help you find it based on their lyric-based searches.

It has a great algorithm that actually works.

  • It has within the app collaborative playlists for your enjoyment. 
  • It's a free app and you can use it well as such until you decide to upgrade.
  • It gives location and time-centric playlists. 
  • It's easy to switch between the music and video options provided in the app. 
  • You get to enjoy the lyrics of each music you listen to.



  • It barely offers any non-music programming.
  • There's no high resolution sound for the music

  • Wayyyy too many repeats

    By shame on turkey (Pcmac user)

    When i first downloaded this app, i was getting ready to get rid of every other music app and subscription i have. Thankfully i didnt though. This is because the first day or two of having this app its completely amazing because of how much music you discover in so little time. Then came day three where this app started repeating things i thumbed up on the “my mixtape” selection. It only got worse from there. It’s almost been a week since ive gotten this app and now EVERY. SINGLE. SONG. is a repeat. This gets extremely frustrating, because i expect the “my mixtape” selection to help you discover new songs of the same type of music you like and have thumbed up. Now every single time i use this app all i do is skip through music and before i know it, i arrive at my destination, or i finish what i’m doing at the moment. The ONLY reason i gave this app 3 starts and not zero, is because this is the only app of its kind and there’s nothing really to compare it to. I am actually thinking of cancelling my membership and using some other music app that causes less frustration and stress in my life. IF YOU INTEND TO DISCOVER NEW MUSIC WITH THIS APP DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP, JUST KEEP SCROLLING DOWN.
  • change it back!

    By AlaskaMarina (Pcmac user)

    Been LOVING this app for a long time until the latest update. i don't understand the logic of the new format at all! Before you could see dozens of songs on the home screen, lots of categories to explore-- artists, genres, recently played, etc., four or more playlists in each section and you could clearly see which song it was going to start on. Now there are weird new categories that don't show actual songs in the thumbnails, and the thumbnails are so huge you can only see two items in each category without scrolling sideways and and you can only see two categories at a time without scrolling down. it's so clunky and clogged up it's impossible to just glance through and find a song that looks good. it has become a far less enjoyable experience, basically if you want to listen to a specific song now you can forget about easily finding it on your home screen. you're just going to have to search it which kind of defeats the whole point in my opinion. and looking for new stuff has just become a crap shoot. if you're thinking about getting this app i'd wait a while for the next update, cause right now it kind of blows.
  • Love the app just ONE thing...

    By Stay.Jaded (Pcmac user)

    Im sure other people would agree but just putting it out there and hope you take it into consideration. But under “Library” in the “Artist” column once you’ve subscribed to someone you like, you should make it where songs you’ve LIKED by that artist get categorized under the “Artist” column and where it says “Shuffle” or “Shuffle Play” you should add another one that says “Shuffle Liked Songs” or something like that so you dont have to shuffle all their songs because I'm sure everyone only listens to a handful of music by an artist and not all their music. Like me some artist i like most their music and others i only listen to a couple songs by them and whenever i click shuffle i don't want to hear all their music just the couple i like. It would help if you categorize the Artist you’ve subscribed to and make a spot next to Shuffle and Radio where it shuffles just music you’ve liked by them. Hopefully you look into what i said if you understand what i mean it would earn that 5 star rating its a great app it would make it so much better if you added that thanks.
  • Good! Suggestion (Please)

    By Crazybubbles101 (Pcmac user)

    I love the app and I don't know if there's a way to change this certain thing and I haven't noticed because I overlooked it, but I have one suggestion When I add a song to a playlist it doesn't add it to the top but adds it to the bottom and I was wondering if you could change that so I don't have to scroll all the way down to see if I actually added the song? Maybe you could make it so that there's more options on editing a playlist instead of just being able to move the songs around and deleting them because it's such a bore when I have to do it again and again. It helps when I see the new song I put on the playlist is on the 'cover' for it to know I actually put it in the right one. All in all I do love the app, that's my only request. Keep doing what you do (which is great stuff) and thanks for reading my suggestion, have a nice day •-•
