Pocket-lint - YouTube Music is a relatively new music streaming service from YouTube that only focuses on all things music across the video streaming platform. With YouTube Music, you can listen to official songs, albums, playlists, artist radios, remixes and live versions of songs. It is a free-to-use service if you don't mind listening to adverts every few songs, available through a mobile app or web player. A YouTube Music Premium tier is also available to remove the adverts, give you background listening so you can exit the app and continue listening and to let you download songs for offline playback. What you can't do with YouTube Music, is watch ad-free videos, such at cats playing the piano, across the rest of the YouTube site. If it's uninterrupted video viewing you want, you will need a YouTube Premium subscription. Like other music streaming services, YouTube puts a lot of attention on its discovery features. It says music is "easier to explore" with the Music service and has an extensive catalogue not only of official songs, but of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos to throw in too.

YouTube was once a simple service. You simply uploaded your videos to the platform or watched videos other people uploaded. However, it has since diversified its portfolio, so to speak.

Here's basically what's happening: It's getting rid of YouTube Red and splitting that into new services. Customers who currently pay for YouTube Red will get the new YouTube Premium service at the same price they currently pay. The new plan still sounds confusing, so I'm going to break down what Google's doing here. YouTube Premium is Google's new paid all-encompassing ad-free service. The free version of YouTube, with ads, will live on. If you're looking to pay for one of these, YouTube Premium is the best bet since it offers the most bang for your buck. It includes music playlists, music videos, remixes and live versions of songs. Subscribers to Google's Spotify competitor, Google Play Music, get this as part of that subscription. Google is trying to make a move against Spotify and Apple Music.
