YouTube has just launched two new streaming services – with YouTube Music and YouTube Premium available now in 17 countries.
Now as well as music videos, users will be able to experience official albums and artists’ full catalogues – including singles, remixes, playlists, and live performances.
Just as with Spotify, a free ad-supported version is available – or you can use it ad-free and offline with a subscription to YouTube Premium. Those using premium will also get access to the ‘YouTube Original’ TV series.
One of the more novel features is the ‘Smart search’ – enabling listeners to find a song even when they can’t remember what it’s called.
YouTube Music is now available in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico as well as Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, and Sweden.
