Just over a week after the launch of the Spotify in India, there is a new streaming service in town. YouTube has launched YouTube Premium, YouTube Originals and YouTube Music in India from tonight — the services were launched globally last June.
YouTube Music will start at Rs 99 per month in India. YouTube Premium will be Rs 129 per month and will include Music subscription.
YouTube is among the biggest video streaming platforms in the country with 245 million monthly active users, which Google says is growing by 100% year-on-year.
Users can download songs or just like them to create a list of liked songs or albums. Adding to playlist is also an easy options and those created before on YouTube are already listed in the app. There is also a good recommendations engine that starts throwing up music you are likely to like based on what you have already listened to.
To listen ad-free, in the background and on-the-go with downloads, you will need to buy a YouTube Music Premium subscription. For paid members the Offline Mixtape automatically downloads up to 100 songs you love on your mobile device. YouTube Music Premium is priced Rs 99 a month.
