YouTube Music enables users to flip between song and music video – Indiantelevision.com
MUMBAI: YouTube Music has introduced a feature for its user that enables them to flip between listening to a song and watching that song’s music video without any interruption. If a video is available, the top of the app’s screen will now have two buttons that say ‘song’ and ‘video’.
Tapping on the video button will switch over to the song’s official music video without any hiccups or pauses. Then, clicking on song button will revert to just the audio and the song’s cover art. It’s all time-matched, so switching in the middle of a song will jump to the corresponding point in the video. If the user wants to stick to just audio, then they can go into settings and turn off the music video option by toggling ‘don’t play music videos’.
YouTube matched over five million music videos to songs for this feature.
Google launched YouTube Music in India on 12 March, introducing a free ad-supported and a premium ad-free version with a subscription fee. Soon after its launch, it surpassed its opponent Spotify by registering more downloads within a week of the launch. YouTube registered three million downloads in the first week of its launch.
