YouTube Music gets free background playback
YouTube announced that the YouTube Music app will enable background playback for free. This feature will be available in Canada on November 3rd.
The YouTube Music app currently allows background playback for YouTube premium members only. If you are not a paying customer, then you cannot reduce the app. If you switch the app to an app or close your screen then playback will stop.
With this feature, users will be able to use the YouTube Music app as they normally would with any music app even though they are not paying subscribers. They will also have access to the feature of radio stations and their playlists. If you have uploaded any songs, you can play them at any time.
If you do not like advertising between your music then you have to pay for the premium plan.
