YouTube Music Is Officially Available In Australia

Google just announced some big news for Australia – we might now have a serious alternative to Spotify, with YouTube Music officially launching today.

When you think about it, YouTube has a lot of music, so this makes a whole lot of sense. There’s music videos (of course) as well as official albums, singles, remixes, covers, live performances (official as well as recorded on someone’s dodgy smartphone camera) – there really is music on YouTube you can’t find anywhere else.

The app will give you recommendations based on the artists and songs you’ve played before, where you are and what you’re doing. There are thousands of playlists. And, there’s Smart Search. “That space-themed Spice Girls song in the desert” will give you the right result. For real. As will “Hold me closer, Tony Danza.”

There’s no ads and you can download content to listen and watch offline. It’ll set you back $11.99 per month or $17.99 per month for a Family Plan. There’s a 30 day free trial on offer at the moment. Check out all the details here.
