YouTube app gets an update with a new music tab

YouTube Logo

With YouTube launching its own music streaming service almost a day ago, the Android version of the app has received an update which brings a Music tab on the menu, giving users access the newly launched service. This essentially gives subscribed users access to a wide range of features such as offline music playback, ad free content, the ability to play music even when using another app and much more.

YouTube Music Key as it is known, is in beta at the moment and only invitees can get hold of this service. At a promotional cost of $7.99 (down from $9.99), customers will also receive a free subscription to Google Play Music (previously known as Play Music All Access).

The Android version of the YouTube app can generate music playlists based on the user’s history and music preferences, which is neat if you’re in the mood to ring up some familiar tunes. It’s relieving to know that YouTube has finally managed to reveal a music streaming service which has been rumored for quite a while. Although functionality is only limited for invitees at the moment, we can expect YouTube to make it public very soon.
