FireTube app delivers a music player for YouTube
Back in August, there was a rumor about a YouTube music subscription service called YouTube Music Key. The ad-free service would offer one free month and cost $9.99 a month thereafter. Since nothing official has ever been revealed by Google, a new third party app in the Google Play Store is the closest thing to a YouTube music service for the time being.

Named FireTube, the app offers you music from YouTube. According to the listing on Google Play, this app "allows you to listen to any song, any time, any where." FireTube features a design and UI that is styled like a music player.

Features include unlimited music from "the largest database of music available." You can even have music playing in the background while you are hammering out details of the Henderson contract on your phone. And if you're looking for today's new tunes, Hot Tracks lets you listen to the top new sounds. Automatic Queue builds a queue for you based on a song or artist. And you can sync a playlist so that it can be heard from any Android device or Firefox browser. You can even import your playlist from another device so that you won't have to build another one. Lastly, with a simple click, you can watch a music video from your favorite tunes.

The app is available right now as a free download from the Google Play Store. If you're tired of waiting around for an official YouTube music service to be introduced, you might want to give FireTube a spin now.

Google really missed that, Youtube music key is a joke, saying $9.99 for low bitrate mp3s is laughable at best.

Well, YT offers so shi@ty quality of audio that I feel bad for everyone using it as music player.

Well duh, because it is meant to be a video streaming service. People use it as an mp3 player because its the biggest collection.

Looks like they already took it out of the store.

I use Pandora and FireTube for music. Both are great!
