Stream music via Youtube
music.youtube.com For millions of people, Youtube is the go-to destination for watching music videos – so much so that the Official Singles Chart is now counting video views toward the weekly pop countdown, and the service is now positioning itself as a music-streaming platform in its own right.
Aside from being available on mobile devices (see our review on page 35), Youtube Music offers a basic website that emphasises music discovery by highlighting new tunes, current hits and recently uploaded videos. It also hopes to introduce you to songs that you may not have listened to for a while, uses machine learning to enable more effective searches and lets you compile playlists.
The songs come with ads but you can pay £9.99 per month for the Premium plan ( www.youtube.com/ musicpremium) to remove them and listen to music offline.
