For mobile users, the service is available in two major smartphone platforms, iOS and android. If you used to download music to listen via offline, then YouTube Music service allows you to do so. According to YouTube, the subscribing to YouTube allows you to listen to the music in the background unlike, the free users where the audio stops if the apps closed. The supported payment type is via credit card and debit card and it’s advisable to subscribe the plans through the website rather than via apps since it is slightly pricey. For a better deal, you can opt to subscribe to YouTube Premium instead that offers a greater value by adding RM 3 extra of your monthly individul subscription and RM 4 for family pack subscription.
