New YouTube Music Streaming App Lets You Minimise Videos Without Interruption

If you ever wished YouTube would let you play music as you toggle between apps, then this news is for you.

On Wednesday (6 Nov), Business Insider Singapore reported that YouTube Music has launched a streaming service here. The app is available for free on the Google Play and iOS store.


The premium version lets users download songs offline, skip advertisements, and play music while toggling between apps from $9.98.

Let’s take a look at this app’s features.

YouTube Music for free

YouTube Music lets users watch live performances, remixes, playlists, covers and music videos. If you don’t know the title of the music, you can search for the lyrics to learn its title.

You can even get personalized recommendations based on your location, taste and history. To find artists gaining buzz,  just check out the “The Hotlist” to keep up with what’s trending.


Nothing good comes for free and the same is true for this app. The free version comes with ads but at least you can watch the MVs and performances of your favourite artists.

Premium subscription

Like many apps, it comes with a premium version.

A paid subscription lets you download songs and enjoy an ad-free music experience. You can even play bops non-stop when other apps are running or when the screen is locked.


Music aficionados who want to enjoy this feature can opt for the YouTube Music Premium Plan from $9.98. Those who want to enjoy an ad-free experience on all of YouTube’s platforms should consider YouTube Premium from $11.98.

Parents can also consider the Family Plan which can cover up to five people from $22.98 in their household.

Here’s a full list of their subscription plans:


Subscribe or nah?

Music fans can now view the live performances, MVs and songs of top artists like Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, BTS and Shawn Mendes. 

There’s no need to switch music apps because you can find everything that you need all in one place. You can download the app through Google Play or the iOS App Store.

Those who like to test the waters can get a one-month free trial to try the app’s premium features.
