In this era of advanced technologies, the concept of android apps has emerged in almost every field and domain of life. While ago, people were not as much concerned about android applications as they are now. Every business organization taking this concept seriously to meet their customer’s requirements and for their furtherance. In short, this concept of android apps has become revered for every small and large business organization.
Now YouTube has once again stepped into this competition and launched a music app that will be part of every android 10 device. The company claimed that the subscription music service will be pre-installed on all devices. Now it will surely replace the Google play music. Before this invention, we had to use Google play to download it separately. Now we will be able to use it without being dependent on Google play. The app will also be available to be installed on the latest devices that ship with Android 9. Although the YouTube music app has been launched, you will still be able to choose Google play to download it. Google it in its recent statement announced that “music listeners on android devices are now just a few steps away from streaming their go-to tracks and discovering new music”.
YouTube Music Competitors
You can listen, discover and share music, videos, albums, and your favorite tracks anytime whenever you want. YouTube Music is Google’s latest attempt. They are working for a music streaming platform to come like a full package for their customers just like Spotify and Apple music. As you may know by now, YouTube Music will replace Google Play Music Eventually. But for some time it’s like both services will co-exist. Google is pushing YT Music harder and more aggressively than ever to replace Google Play Music App. If we talk while looking at the subscribers, Google is still far behind its competitors Spotify and Apple Music App. Google is pushing YouTube Music very hard and it is like that they will make YouTube the part of their regular Google Apps package on new smart phones. The devices that are going launch with Android 9 or up will have the YouTube Music pre-installed.
The streaming music services of YouTube are quite competitive. It has large rivals like Apple Music and Spotify. Although it offers the ability to discover and stream the music, it is not known if it will include albums, live performances or remixes. YouTube Music users will be able to listen to ad-free and offline music with paid subscriptions. With the launch of its own Discover Mix, it introduces its version of Spotify’s Discover Weekly.
The users who don’t want to use this app will be able to use Google Play Music. The listeners with Android 10 devices can continue to use the Google Play Music by downloading the app directly from the Play Store. The listeners that are without a new Android (9 or 10) handset can also have access to YouTube Music. These listeners will install this app if they want from the Play Store.
YT Music– Not a default music player
Compared to Spotify and Apple Music, YouTube Music is been lagging in subscribers. It also has to compete with Android’s built-in music app for subscribers. The fact that there’s not been a way to import a Google Play Music user’s playlists and liked songs that he curated over years to YouTube music made it worse.
The apple will be just a few taps on your new device soon. Not known if it is for better or for worse, time will tell. It will probably be good or cool news for the users who are already using this music app. This is part of Google’s efforts to boost its adoption if you are not the user of YouTube Music. Google Play Music also came pre-installed on Android devices in the past. This Google Play Music App is just not used as a music app but also as a default music player of the many devices. Some features compared to oldie GPM is still lacking in YouTube Music. It is particularly the ability to easily play your local music library. Although it would not be able to your default music player, it will be worth using.
