Video Company Seeks To Compete In Audio Industry With Spotify Dominance
Youtube Music is becoming a much more independent music platform from YouTube, as demonstrated by the new updates it recently made.
Before Youtube Music was a YouTube extension where the user could find the songs of their favorite artists to listen to them without having to see the video. However, this is changing more and more due to the unique functions of the application.

You criticize Youtube Music
Although the changes announced by the application help the dynamics with users, the service is still very far from what Spotify offers on its platform.
Part of the criticism from users is that YouTube Music does not provide infographics or data about the songs.
On the other hand, others indicate that the lists of songs offered on YouTube Music is limited compared to the « king » of music streaming, Spotify.
