YouTube Music made its debut on the market in 2018. Since then, Google has been less and less involved in development of its original music streaming project - Google Play Music. Ultimately, Google Play Music will disappear from the market later this month, and Google itself is encouraging users to switch directly to YouTube Music. The influence of Google on the popularity of the service is certainly considerable and ultimately YouTube Music can already boast a large group of users using the application.
YouTube Music is currently one of the most popular apps on the Play Store as it has reached 500 million downloads. The main advantage of YouTube Music compared to other streaming applications is the wide library of songs available for listening. All thanks to the fact that in the application it is possible to play virtually every song that is available on the YouTube platform. The downside is that a lot of songs are available at 192kbps quality, not 320kbps as with other services.
