YouTube Music Now Supports Custom Offline Playlists
Google updated its YouTube Music application recently and made it possible for users to create their own playlists for offline listening. Before the update, YouTube Music would create mixtape for subscribers using its own algorithms — subscribers could not pick and choose individual songs or albums for offline playback. Now, users can select songs or videos and create their own list of tunes to listen to when the device is offline. YouTube Music is a separate music video-focused application. Offline playback requires a $10 monthly subscription fee, but is included at no extra cost to those who subscribe to YouTube Red or Google Play Music.
