YouTube is the world’s biggest video streaming platform and it has a huge team of developers who are always looking to enhance what the platform can do. One of the ways that YouTube is doing that is by launching special Premium and Music services which have now been launched in 17 countries. With that said, today we are going to cover what YouTube Premium and Music do and present the countries in which the two services are currently available.
Ever since Spotify started generating hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue by allowing people to stream music, YouTube decided that it wants a piece of the cake and launched YouTube Music. As we can tell from the service’s name, YouTube Music is an app that features every type of music which can be streamed on smartphones. The cool thing about YouTube Music is the fact that it features album versions of songs, live performances, remixes, covers and much more.
YouTube Premium is a subscription service that charges $11.99 per month. What makes YouTube Premium special is the number of high quality videos that it offers. Not just that, but YouTube Premium also supports background listening for videos, something which the original app doesn’t.
In addition, YouTube Premium features original TV shows such as Impulse, Cobra Kai, F2 Finding Football and The Sideman Show among others.
Even though YouTube Premium might not have as many exclusive titles as Netflix does, YouTube promises that it will keep investing revenue in original content as time goes on and that it will have the “biggest original series and movies” available to stream.
