YouTube Music got a nifty new feature this week for its Premium subscribers, allowing you to switch seamlessly between audio and video playback without interrupting the flow of a song. YouTube announced the feature in a blog post on July 18, running users through the change — available for Premium subscribers on both the YouTube Music streaming platform and YouTube itself. Now though, if you're listening to one of YouTube Music's five million songs that have a music video, there'll be a 'Video' button you can press to add in some eye-candy — or remove it at your leisure without interrupting playback of the song. Despite Google owning the YouTube streaming platform, and pushing its music capabilities quite hard in the previous months — vastly increasing the number of songs you can download for offline play , for one — you'll still find Google Play Music installed by default on Android phones. We expect YouTube Music to overtake Google's own-brand service at some point, and you can view this latest feature as an attempt to get YouTube Music ready for the takeover — given that Google Play is already able to switch between video and audio, albeit while restarting the song from scratch. We've also caught wind of a some new design tests, with trials of a relocated search bar in the Android version of the YouTube Music app via 9to5Google. While none of these changes are that major, it's building up to a stronger and more intuitive streaming service in a highly competitive landscape. Google will need to work on making YouTube a go-to music destination in the vein of Spotify or Apple Music if it hopes to take a substantial share of the market, or at least make it worthy of the throne on Android devices the world over.
Subscriber Account active since. Youtube Music uses Google's algorithms to tailor playlists to your interests, as well as help you discover new artists. It supports these features using advertising, as well as a paid membership that removes those ads and lets you download tracks to listen offline. You'll still keep your playlists and account.
