YouTube Music gets a slick way of switching to music videos

YouTube Music’s latest feature plays to its strengths

If you're a YouTube Music subscriber, you'll now be able to switch between audio-only tracks and music videos at will.

YouTube Music has rolled out new updates for premium subscribers, including Smart Downloads and new playlists for South Africa. While that's certainly a lot of supported content, it still doesn't encompass every single song in the YouTube Music library, so don't be surprised if a few of your favorite tracks don't have this functionality available yet.

Why it matters: YouTube is easily one of the most popular websites out there. "We hit full peak then valley of emotions there, because the title ended with "...switch seamlessly between audio and music videos".

"Now, with Smart Downloads, users can simply select the number of songs they would like automatically downloaded by toggling their YouTube Music Settings". But in YouTube Music, there is a prominent SONG/VIDEO toggle right at the top of the Now Playing experience that works globally.

The odds eased to around 40 per cent after the New York Fed said William's speech had not been about immediate policy direction. Markets see it as a certainty the Fed will cut rates by at least a quarter of a percentage point at the meeting.

"Switching between audio songs to music videos is as simple as the tap of a button".

Honestly, I don't see this all that much in Google Play Music, but even when that "Watch video" Play button does appear, it doesn't sync. It's not particularly integrated.

After matching over five million audio tracks with their official videos, YouTube Music is now letting premium users to transit from the audio of a track to watching the music video without any pauses or interruptions. Google says that it has over 5 million official music videos in its catalog.
