YouTube Music and YouTube Premium launch in 12 new countries

Today Google is launching YouTube Music and YouTube Premium in the UK and 11 other new countries – Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain and Sweden. YouTube Music was launched in May in US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea.

YouTube Music

YouTube Music offers music videos, albums, singles, remixes, live performances and covers as well as curated playlists for mood, genre or activity.

The app features a Smart Search that finds songs by name or by lyrics (even if they are not exact) but can also find “that George Michael song with the models” or that song that goes “ooh la la la” – just like Google search! That’s something Apple Music and Spotify don’t offer yet.
