Finally, a review that makes me feel sane. I have deep-ended on Apple and Amazon music lately, trying to find an alternative to YouTube Music, but there’s just nothing like it for discovering music, which is the #1 thing for me.
I was a YTM subscriber for 3 years but lost the account because I foolishly used my work email for it and Google wouldn’t let me transfer it to my personal account, even though that was the recovery email and I personally paid for it. That and concerns over Google surveillance caused me to spend way too many hours evaluating services like Spotify.
But Google must have an overwhelming advantage with the data it collects through YouTube, Chrome, and its amazing AI. So I’m back to YouTube Music.
Like you I love the way it creates offline music automatically and it’s almost always great.
I also love how it mixes in covers from unknown amateur musicians that can’t be found on other music streaming services; they are only on YouTube. They are some of my favorites, amazingly.
Maybe their AI is particularly good with me because I use YouTube so much and I’m constantly liking things?
