Recently, Google has launched YouTube Music, and YouTube Premium. One of them is the online music service, which offers the same features as you would expect in Google Play Music. The rest is an online music service , offering an ad-free YouTube experience.
But it seems Google has too many names for its services and makes users feel very confusing. Do not worry! The following article will explain each service to you.
Consider YouTube Music as a competitor to Spotify or Apple Music. Users can subscribe, play music, or watch YouTube music videos, which are all done in the app. There are two different service packages. A free, advertised package and a $ 9.99 package (equivalent to AU $ 11.99 and £ 9.99) for those who want to play in the background and download music without advertisements.
There is an application for iOS and Android users, as well as a dedicated website for listening to music on the desktop.
YouTube Red is YouTube Premium
Do you remember YouTube Red? Now it’s gone. The YouTube service without ads is now called YouTube Premium.
What is YouTube Premium?
YouTube Premium includes everything included in the YouTube Music Subscription Package – play-free, downloadable content, background play, etc., as well as the YouTube experience with no ads and access. Include original YouTube content. You can also download YouTube videos for offline viewing.
YouTube Premium is a bit higher than YouTube Music, at a cost of $ 11.99 ($ 14.99 Australian and £ 11.99) per month.
What about Google Play Music?
It is also included in it! If you subscribe to YouTube Music or YouTube Premium, you also have full access to Google Play Music features . Sorry, your music library and playlist remain separate in these two services. Hopefully, Google will soon merge these two services together or we can come up with a solution to this problem.
