YouTube new music app launched, offering countless new features
YouTube launched on November 12 its new YouTube Music app, which is designed to make searching for music in the video streaming site easier.
According to The Verge YouTube may be a video streaming service and it even acts as a search engine, but it is also one of the largest music streaming service providers in the world. It is even used more than its competitors like Spotify or Apple when consumers listen to their favorite music. The app is for free, but it offers more amazing features for people who pay for YouTube Red subscription. The app is like a typical music service where people can look for artists, individual songs, and alums. It has 30 million licensed audio tracks to choose from. These choices offer additional features like live concerts, karaoke tracks, instructional videos, and more. These features are not found in its other competitors.
Tech Crunch reported that upon launching YouTube Music, the user will get a personalized homepage. It can automagically give the users the music he or she prefers. By hitting the thumbs up button, it will remember the song and save it for later listening. A user who taps on the trending tab will be given tracks from "The Daily 40" list.
"We want the Daily 40 to be the place you go to know what everyone else is watching and talking about and sharing," said YouTube music products head T. Jay Fowler in a report by The Wall Street Journal. "If a song is blowing up on YouTube, this is where you'd find out about it."
Fowler said the service is a hybrid of browsing and searching. It will give the user a mix of organic and organized results. After searching, it will give the user the official music videos as well as so many other related contents below the result.
