Lifestyle You Tube Premium South Africa now available! Goodbye adverts!
By Hans Haupt- 13 March 2019 0

Google has finally launched YouTube Music and YouTube Premium services in India.

While users will be able to stream the music for free in the ad-supported version of the application, the company is also offering paid membership with additional features such as playing songs in the background, offline downloads and an ad-free experience for ₹99 per month.

Better still, if you are a Google Play Music subscriber, then you will receive YouTube Music free of charge.

The YouTube Music is said to be a reimagined, made-for-music app and web player with official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio plus YouTube's catalogue of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos. The paid version - YouTube Music Premium, allows you to play songs and video in the background even when the phone is locked.

Along with Youtube Music, Youtube has also launched Youtube Premium and Youtube Originals in India.

YouTube Premium South Africa now available

YouTube Music offers several features, including a home screen that "dynamically adapts to provide recommendations based on what you've played before, where you are and what you're doing". Today, Google India announced that it's bringing YouTube Premium and YouTube Music to the country.

An ad-free YouTube experience is something that I have been eyeing for years.

Users can search for descriptions, lyrics and even emojis to find the tracks they want to listen to. Additionally, seven of the top 100 most played songs of 2018 across YouTube featured Indian artists. YouTube's scale in India means that even a small conversion rate could have a significant impact: if just 1% of its Indian users started paying for YouTube Music, that's almost 2.5 million new subscribers. Here's why, for my kind of usage, YouTube Music Premium takes a big lead. The world of music is your oyster with YouTube Music Premium. This paid membership offers an ad-free experience and offline downloads.

YouTube Music Premium subscription price starts from Rs.99 per month.

"What we have done with this streaming service is bring the power of YouTube with it". It also entitles download option for the consumers. Current features on the list such as Luka Chuppi, Petta - Marana Mass Official Video, Thassadiyya Full Video Song etc demonstrate the versatile collation of what's hot in music in India as per the popular taste. India's love for music comes as no surprise for the company, which has seen T-Series, a music label and movie production house from the country, nearly overtake PewDiePie, the biggest YouTuber in terms of subscribers.
