Part1: Download YouTube Music for a Fee

Download with YouTube Premium

Basically, YouTube Music is a music streaming application developed by YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, similar to Spotify and Apple Music. Only a Premium member can enjoy the best listening experience, which costs 10 dollars a month.The best thing about YouTube Music is that since it relies on the YouTube platform, most of the music is available on video. In addition, YouTube music Premium members also have access to Google Play Music. Conversely, if you purchase a Google Play Music subscription, you can also enjoy YouTube Music.

YouTube Premium is also a membership service offered by YouTube, formerly known as YouTube Red, which costs $12 per month and offers benefits such as ad removal, offline playback of downloaded movies, background playback, free access to original episodes and YouTube music premium.

If you are willing to pay for your favorite music, then buying and downloading it through official channels is definitely the best way to go. If you are a YouTube Music Premium member, you can download music to play offline on your mobile device. One catch though is that you need to reconnect to the internet at least once every 30 days to keep the downloads going. This means that if the membership expires later, the previously downloaded music will no longer be available for listening.
