YouTube offers one of its ‘paid’ features for free to millions around the world. Until now, only premium YouTube music subscribers could stream content on connected speakers around the house. However, anyone can do it now.
As Android Police found, YouTube Music now also plays well with Google Assistant. This means a valid, personalized playlist service will appear whenever you ask for a name. For example, “Hey Google, play my ‘Musicals at Work’ playlist.” While the report says the feature will work in the US, consumers in Brazil and Canada may also have received it.
This confirmation was received from a user on Reddit. “Sorry if this has already been posted, but I have noticed that it is now possible to stream uploaded music without a premium membership! This is a small success, and the old GPM features are slowly being added. Note: I’m talking about iOS, ”said Reddit.
In addition to YouTube music upgrades, the company recently introduced support for 4K videos on the Apple TV 4K. Interestingly, Apple TV 4K has been around for a while, but with the TVOS 14 update, it has announced support for 4K YouTube videos this year. Prior to the update, Apple TV limited the 4K video resolution to 1080p for UHD videos.
