Using YouTube Music on your PC and Android or iPhone phone

YouTube Music is a music streaming platform launched in Brazil last Tuesday (25). Available in web version, on iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android devices, Google's service comes to compete with Spotify and Deezer by offering streaming audio and video. Like its rivals, Music allows users to play back, create custom playlists, slavar songs to listen to later, and share music with friends in messengers, social networks, and via email.
