YouTube Debuts Its "Music" App
YouTube Music is free to download, and there's a free, ad-supported tier, but you unleash its power if you become a YouTube Red subscriber for $9.99 per month.
The experience is optimized for music and allows you to search for a particular song from its 30 million licensed tracks. The key here is that when you search in the app, you'll only get music-related results.
It should be noted that the app doesn't replicate Google Play Music (which is included if you sign up for Red) as it doesn't allow you to create a playlist. What it does instead is create a playlist for you based on what you've listened to before as well as some songs that it thinks you'll like.
Of course, its ad-free if you've signed up for Red, but it's yet to be seen if that will be enough to attract new users.
If you're using either YouTube Red or YouTube Music, let us know what you think. Is it worth the money?
