What is YouTube Music?
It is a music streaming service which allows users to listen to songs or watch videos just as people normally do in the main YouTube App. With the premium subscription, you will have features like background playback and offline downloads (up to 100) and it does not come with Ads.
The premium version goes beyond music and applies to YouTube videos on all devices. It will allow you to remove ads in all videos and will also allow you to play the videos in the background. With the premium version, you will have the access to download YouTube originals like Cobra Kai and can download more than 100 tracks for offline playback.
Another good news is that Google is giving out free 4 months YouTube premium subscription to Samsung Galaxy S10 users. The subscription is not yet live since Google made the announcement but you can still check back after few days. Source: Google
