Google has announced a slew of new features that will make its way to its newly-launched music streaming application, YouTube Music. The company has listed several features that will be incorporated in YouTube Music in coming weeks.
The company says that it will provide better audio quality and ability to select the quality for downloading and streaming on the streaming applications. The app will be updated with Sonos and Android Auto support. The company is currently rolling out SD card support for Android. Further, the new update will allow users to play songs in shuffle or play-in-order options for playlists.
The company has also revealed that it is working on a feature that will allow users to transfer music over from Google Play Music, however, this might take some time. To recall, the company introduced its music streaming service in May this year.
YouTube Music is a revamped version of its existing music service, the YouTube Red, that will offer on-demand music, similar to what we have seen in Spotify or Apple Music.
YouTube Music has thousands of playlists, the official versions of millions of songs, albums, artist radio and more, in addition to all the music videos, people expect from YouTube. The company has announced that the music service is free, though it has introduced a YouTube Music Premium, which is a paid membership for $9.99 per month. Users will be able to download music for offline listening and it will also play in the background. The service will offer ad-free music experience.
