YouTube Music to go audio-only for non-premium users

by Johnson Daniel

YouTube has recently announced that videos on YouTube Music will soon become exclusive to YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium subscribers. It simply means that non-premium users will listen to songs without videos.

This update which will allow people to continue listening to YouTube Music while using other apps or when your screen is off will begin rolling out in Canada beginning November 3, 2021.YouTube Music to go audio-only for non-premium users

YouTube Music will continue to allow free users to access dedicated mood mixes on the platform but users who aren’t subscribed to either of these plans will also miss out on features like on-demand music selection and unlimited skips.

Here’s a detailed list of features free and paid users will be able to experience:

Free users:

  • Listen to music in the background
  • Shuffle play personalized mixes (that are made just for you!)
  • Find the perfect mood mixes for activities like workout, commute and more
  • Explore millions of songs & thousands of playlists, free of cost

Premium subscription users:

  • Listen to songs on-demand
  • Watch videos on YouTube Music
  • Skip tracks an unlimited number of times
  • Enjoy YouTube Music without ads

We can expect the update to roll out to other regions and alongside this update, some features will become exclusive to YouTube Music Premium listeners.
