Google's latest endeavor into streaming music services has a slight learning curve, only because it takes some inspiration from YouTube in how it handles your music. When you first start service, you're asked to pick some artists you like. Those selections are important because they direct listening suggestions made by YouTube Music. When you subscribe to an artist, you can find him or her in the Artists section of your library. After your initial selection of artists you like, you can continue to fine tune the app's suggestions with a thumbs up or down on an album or song. Open the app, view the currently playing song, and you'll find a thumbs down and a thumbs up on either side of the playback controls.
How much does YouTube Music cost?
YouTube Music is a music streaming service from Google. Available for iOS , Android and desktop , it's aimed at people who mostly use the YouTube app to stream music, but would like to do so without ads getting in the way. Essentially a mashup of the original YouTube app and Google Play Music, YouTube Music is focused entirely on songs, and hosts a wide variety of music videos and audio tracks. Google doesn't give an exact figure for how many, but it would be hard to compare the two directly anyway because of the sheer amount of other content offered by YouTube Music, including live performances and videos from concerts.
