YouTube Music is a music streaming service developed by YouTube; it provides a interface for music streaming, allowing users to browse through music videos on YouTube based on genres, playlists, and recommendations. Youtube music also offers a premium tier, which enables ad-free playback, audio-only background playback, and downloading songs for offline playback. These subscription benefits are also offered to subscribers of Google Play Music and YouTube Premium.
The app allows users to browse and stream all music-oriented videos on YouTube. The availability of music includes many of the releases from mainstream artists and extends to any video categorized as music on the YouTube service. Songs play via their music videos where applicable. YouTube Music Premium subscribers are able to switch to an audio-only mode that can play in the background while the application is not in use.
YouTube Music will initially operate in parallel with Google Play Music, but product manager Elias Roman stated that Google Play Music users will eventually be migrated to YouTube Music after it reaches feature parity. YouTube Music product manager T. Jay Fowler stated that collections, playlists and preferences would be migrated.
