YouTube Music is a music streaming service from Google. Available for iOS , Android and desktop , it's aimed at people who mostly use the YouTube app to stream music, but would like to do so without ads getting in the way. Essentially a mashup of the original YouTube app and Google Play Music, YouTube Music is focused entirely on songs, and hosts a wide variety of music videos and audio tracks. Google doesn't give an exact figure for how many, but it would be hard to compare the two directly anyway because of the sheer amount of other content offered by YouTube Music, including live performances and videos from concerts. To save audio directly from videos, check out our guides to free YouTube to MP3 converters and free YouTube downloaders. You can only use YouTube music with a valid subscription or trial; unlike some music streaming services such as Spotify, there's no free ad-supported version. You can try it free for a month before deciding whether to commit, and you can cancel any time without too much hassle. Just download the app and log in using the same account you use for Google Play Music. YouTube Music also allows you to keep listening to audio while you use other apps or have your phone's screen switched off, which isn't possible with the free YouTube app. You can also download songs and videos to enjoy offline, though these aren't stored on your device in a format that can be easily shared or transferred which is understandable to avoid piracy.
