YouTube Music now allows users to download songs, albums and playlists for offline listening
Until Google merges YouTube Red and Play Music services, music lovers get to benefit from new features that are only available with a subscription. YouTube Red is a premium service that requires a monthly fee, but one of the features that its subscribers use on a regular basis is now available for free to YouTube Music users.

Starting with the latest update, YouTube Music gains the option to save songs, albums, and playlists for offline listening, Google confirmed recently.

If you already updated to the latest version of your smartphone, you will find a new Save Offline option hidden under the Menu icon highlighted by three dots. You will then be asked whether you want to save just the audio, SD video, or HD video.

After the app saves your desired file, you will be able to access them offline by tapping on your profile photo and selecting Offline mode. Keep in mind that if you're using an iOS device, you'll be able to swipe left on a song in a playlist to make it available Offline.

Finally! If the Google Play Music and YouTube Music apps merge and they improve the UI/UX, I might be tempted to switch from Spotify
