YouTube Just Launched a Brand New Music Streaming App and It’s Huge

Spotify and Apple Music now have a major competitor. 

Not to sound like someone’s grandma, but there really is an app for everything now. Well, aside from things you really need in everyday life like the “What’s That Bug” app, or the “Did You Spit in This?” app. When it comes to music though, the app game is getting pretty tight — and YouTube just added to it with YouTube Music.

YouTube Music, which just launched on Google Play and Apple’s App Store, is a stand-alone app that will bring easier searching and streaming of all the cool music related stuff hidden in the depths of YouTube. No more endless searching for a crystal clear video of your favorite performer’s appearance on SNL, or that brand new music video you’ve been waiting to drop. It’ll all be right there for you, ready for the clicking, along with documentaries, live performances, and complete albums.

YouTube Music is free to use, but if you want to bypass the ads, you may want to consider the YouTube Red subscription, which costs $9.99 a month and allows you offline access to the songs, and the ability to play music in the background. 

Seeing as though YouTube is already a huge go-to source for most things we end up losing hours of each day enjoying, this is gonna be big.
