Google's recent quest to stream music services has an easy learning curve just because YouTube is somewhat inspired by YouTube when it comes to processing your music.
If you're wondering what YouTube Music is and how different it is from YouTube Premium or Google Play Music, here's.
Three main sections
When you start the service you will be asked to select some artists that you like. These choices are important because they guide the hearing suggestions made by YouTube Music.
After the initial setup, the app is divided into three different sections:
- Start : See the app's main page Here you will find playlist and artist suggestions as well as your current listening history.
- Hotlist : Are you tired of hearing the same old stuff? Hotlist curates the most watched music videos.
- Library : Find artists you've subscribed to, albums you've added to your account, songs you liked, and your playlists. There is also a list called Last Played.
Press this button
Adding an album or playlist to your account is simple – just tap the "+" sign next to each item. However, YouTube Music was inspired by YouTube and has a subscribe button for artists. If you subscribe to an artist, you can find it in the artist section of your library.
Thumb up or down
After the first selection of artists you like, you can further refine the app's suggestions by swiping an album or song up or down. Open the app, view the currently playing song, and find a thumbs-down and a thumbs up on both sides of the playback controls. Pressing a thumb down will jump to the next song.
So far, one of my favorite aspects of YouTube Music is the offline mixtape that it creates and manages for you. Once you've set it up, that's called.
In the app, go to the Library tab and select Downloads . At the top of the screen is a slider from 0 to 100. Moving the slider will update the numbers above it in real time so that you can see the length of the playlist and the amount of memory on your screen
Power on, and as long as you're connected to Wi-Fi, the app will automatically start downloading the offline mixtape. In the last week I received three notifications that the mixtape was updated and new songs were downloaded (of course with old songs removed).
Ditch the videos … or not
If you do not want to play a music video while listening to music, there is a small slider at the top of the playback screen in the app. By default, it is set to play music videos. You can see this with the YouTube logo on the round button. Tap the button to stream only audio.
