YouTube Music has been doing pretty well compared to its competitors. But the upcoming feature might disturb its free members. Starting next month, the app will be become an audio-only app for free users, while paid members can continue enjoying the full features.
The new changes will start from November 3rd. This new policy will first be imposed in Canada and then roll out in other regions. However, the “global expansion plans”. Perhaps the company first wants to see the results of this new policy.
Google rolled out this update using its support platform. According to the updates, free users of the service can listen to music in the background (a good thing when you don’t feel like watching the video), shuffle play personalized mixes (made for free users), find music based on their mood (workout, commute, etc.), and explore free songs and playlists.
The company is giving some extra features to those who pay for the service, besides music videos. The paid subscribers can listen to on-demand songs, skip tracks, and enjoy YouTube Music without ads. Yes, that’s is one of the privileges only paid members will get!
It has been a long time since I joined Research Snipers. Though I have been working as a part-time tech-news writer, it feels good to be part of the team. Besides that, I am building a finance-based blog, working as a freelance content writer/blogger, and a video editor.
