Google today launched a standalone music app called YouTube Music. While YouTube brings you everything uploaded in videos, YouTube Music brings you only Music videos which also can be played in the background. Also, unlike the main app, this Music app keeps on playing continuously unless you stop it, just like our native music apps.
The home screen of YouTube Music brings you some tracks pulled from your recent searches and tastes. As well as it shows recently played tracks. You can search tracks by artist, track or album, the app will bring you each music file associated with the search no matter if it is the official music or remix or even the covers. There’s also tabs for Music Today and Music this Week.
Most importantly, when you download and sign-in in YouTube Music, you get 14 days free trial of YouTube Red absolutely free that also lets you take music offline, and that too add free. Although, as we understand, it brings Video Music tracks, there is also a feature called “Audio Mode” that lets you play only Audio, without Video. Which means less Data consumption.
