August 29, 2018 — YouTube Music Premium expands to 4 more countries
As the YouTube Music Premium rollout continues, it’s now been confirmed that the service is available in four additional countries. Specifically, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands!
Similar to other parts of Europe where YouTube Music Premium is available, the service costs €9.99/month and 99 kroner/month in Denmark.
August 1, 2018 — YouTube Music plans bi-weekly update schedule, reconfirms some coming features
YouTube Music has a lot of bugs to fix and features to add before it can begin to truly compete with Spotify or begin migrating Google Play Music subscribers over, and while those updates will take time, we at least have something of a timetable for when YouTube Music will be receiving updates.
YouTube Music product manager Elias Roman tells Engaget that the service plans to push out updates for the service every two weeks. Among the changes Roman confirmed:
- An album sorting option beyond recently added
- A drop-down menu option to filter out musicians you follow on YouTube Music from the main YouTube Subscriptions feed
- Low/medium/high audio quality settings for streaming and downloads (coming in a few weeks)
Roman was also quoted as saying that “We are not focused on exclusives. We don’t believe exclusives are good for the industry or good for consumers.” This makes sense for YouTube Music given that everything available on YouTube Music is available on the main YouTube app to both paid and free users, which would make exclusives available to everyone.
July 17, 2018 — Google promises Android Auto support, better sound quality, SD card support, and more with future updates
There are plenty of areas in which Google can improve YouTube Music, and thanks to the team behind the app, we now have a short list of features to expect in future updates.
Over on the YouTube Music Help forum on Google Support, the YouTube Music team says that the following features will be available in no particular order over the coming months:
- Better audio quality, and ability to select the quality for downloading and streaming
- Sonos support
- Android Auto support
- SD card support for Android
- More obvious shuffle vs. play-in-order options for playlists
It’s unclear when exactly all of this will be available, but the option to save downloaded songs to an SD card is rolling out now.

May 23, 2018 — Your locally owned songs from Google Play Music will transfer over to YouTube Music… eventually
Google wants all of its Play Music subscribers to migrate over to YouTube Music at some point in 2019, and to help make that process as seamless as possible, the company’s confirmed that some of Play Music’s best features will be coming to the new YouTube Music — the biggest of which is a music locker for storing copies of song you locally own.
This news was recently confirmed by Google to The Verge, with the Head of YouTube Music saying on Twitter that “Your collection, playlists and preferences from Google Play Music will be preserved at migrated to YouTube music for a soft landing.”
In addition to having a place to store music you already own, YouTube Music will eventually allow you to buy new songs that you can add to your collection.
May 22, 2018 — The new YouTube Music is officially here!
