Lyor Cohen, global head of music, YouTube Lyor Cohen, Global Head of Music, YouTube told ETtech that its breadth of content will be a key differentiator from rivals, with video being "the lynchpin to the whole proposition". The YouTube Music app is available for both Android and iOS platforms and can be download from the app stores of the respective platforms.

For paid members, "Offline Mixtape" feature automatically downloads up to 100 songs they might like on their mobile device. The home screen welcomes you with "recommended music videos", "live performances" and other categories.

Thousands of playlists across genres, moods, activities or languages, including those titled "Bollywood Hotlist, ' 'Featuring Drake, ' 'Upbeat Hindi Retro, ' 'Cosmic Indie Pop, ' 'Kollywood Hotlist" and 'Tollywood Hotlist'. Earlier called YouTube Red, this service offers ad-free playback and access to YouTube's cache or original shows and movies. YouTube Music as the company claims is the one-stop for music. Given the limited catalogue of the original content on YouTube Premium, the service is not really a competitor to any of the video streaming services like Netflix or Prime Video and will only look enticing to the consumers who want to enhance their YouTube watching experience, more than getting any extra content.

YouTube Music will be going head-to-head with the likes of Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, JioSaavn, and Gaana in the country.

YouTube has also brought its premium service with original content to India.
