Everyone knows that when it comes to videos, you think YouTube, the same way you think MissTechy for interesting Tech content. To continue this tradition, YouTube released its music app called YouTube Music and judging by the reviews, you might not like it when it eventually comes to Nigeria.
The app is very basic – you can search for artist and albums etc. However, there is a twist, (will get to that part shortly). By the way, the app isn’t available in Nigeria yet! But you can use VPN to download it.
Now, back to the twist, if you try out Youtube Music without having a YouTube Red subscription, you get a Youtube video experience, i.e. when you leave the app, you cannot play background music from YouTube Music, neither can you create a playlist. What is the point, yeah? This will not only affect the music experience, it will also drain your battery.
However, you get curated music content, for example, when you search for Hillsong United (My favorite group) you can browse through their albums and latest songs. You can also get music suggestions based on Hillsong United, this is available thanks to an Algorithm used by Youtube and a small human curation staff that make these playlists meet your taste.
As said earlier, to enjoy Youtube Music, you would need to subscribe for Youtube red which goes for $9.99.
