YouTube Music will now offer the option of listening to audio-only for its free users. Users using YouTube Music for free will no longer be able to watch videos with Music. Keep in mind that this change has happened only in YouTube Music, and not in YouTube. This change will be rolled out in Canada from November 3.
No information has been given on when it will be rolled out in India and other countries. Recently these changes have been announced by the platform in a post. This post of the company was first seen by 9to5Google.
Youtube Music New Changes
There is one more thing in this change. Users who have not subscribed to YouTube Premium will not be able to listen to on-demand music or skip unlimited. However, you can keep enjoying the dedicated mood mix on YouTube Music. It includes thousands of playlists along with workout and silent mixes and will run with commercials like never before. 9to5Google has said that if free users have uploaded some songs, then they will be able to listen to them on-demand without any hindrance.
What will free users be able to do?
Users using the free YouTube Music app can enjoy music in the background. You can listen to personalized mixes. They will be able to enjoy music according to their mood and activities, but with advertisements. You can listen to all the other songs and playlists on YouTube Music.
What will premium users be able to do?
Users who have taken a premium subscription can obviously get more benefits than those who use the app for free. Unlimited on-demand songs can be heard in these. You can watch videos on YouTube Music and skip songs as many times as you want. And all this will happen without ads.
