YouTube Music has been around since the end of 2015, but it only started to become a viable music service in 2019. It makes sense for Google to use YouTube's existing library of music videos, remixes and covers to create a huge music platform. But a disadvantage is that you get many music video versions of songs instead of the album versions. Fortunately you can change this.
Yes, with Google you can finally stream your favorite songs with an audio-only option. Like music worked before, you had to watch the video yourself to listen to the song, even though it only had an image of the album cover and nothing else. Now you can get directly from the audio stream itself with the simple push of a button. Follow this quick guide to get started.
Disable music videos & # 39; s
Open the YouTube Music app ( Android | iOS), tap your profile icon in the top right corner, and then go to & # 39; Settings & # 39 ;. If you use Android, stay put. If you use iOS, tap & # 39; Play and Restrictions & # 39 ;.
Now, regardless of your device, you will find a setting named & # 39; No music video & # 39; s playback & # 39; on the top of the list. If you enable this, all your music will be forced to an audio-only or official album version of each song. Tap the switch on to enable this direct access setting. Ready!
When you jump from the video clip to the official audio stream of the album, you almost always notice a much higher level of audio playback. Depending on the age of the video clip and the bitrate quality they have chosen, it can be a huge difference in some cases. Switching to the official album version of your favorite music video will raise the bit rate to a much more respectable quality.
Something else to keep in mind, you also have the option to switch back and forth between the audio and video versions of each song seamlessly. When you play the song, tap anywhere on the screen to press the & # 39; Song & # 39; buttons and & # 39; Video & # 39; at the top that you can select. So you can switch between them at any time if you wish.
