Google has released its new YouTube Music app for iOS in the U.S. App Store, following the company’s announcement last month that it would arrive following the debut of its new YouTube Red subscription service. YouTube Music is focused on allowing users to watch and listen to the entire catalog of music videos available on YouTube, with discovery features that allow users to tap on tracks they love and explore from there. Users can listen to music online for free, with ads, while YouTube Red subscribers get the ability to watch ad-free videos and listen to music offline, in the background, or without having to load the video. Users will automatically receive a free fourteen-day trial of YouTube Red upon signing into the YouTube Music app.

Google Unveils Second Generation Chromecast

1

Google unveiled the second generation of its Chromecast streaming stick at a press event in San Francisco Tuesday.

Google introduced two new Chromecast devices. The new Chromecast ($35) has a fresh design, and is easier to plug into TVs with crowded ports. It supports the latest Wi-Fi standards and adapts more easily to changing Wi-Fi conditions in your home, so you get higher quality video with less buffering.

Chromecast Audio ($35) is a small device that plugs into your existing speakers, so you can stream your favorite music, radio and podcasts over Wi-Fi, similar to Chromecast. It works with apps including Spotify, Pandora and Google Play Music. Just like Chromecast, it works from anywhere in your home with your favorite devices, including Android, iOS, and laptops. And it’s available on the Google Store and other online retailers today.

Google also updated the Chromecast app to make it easier for you to find great things to watch or to play, across the thousands of apps that work with Chromecast—whether you feel like browsing or want to search for a specific TV show or movie. The updated Chromecast app is rolling out on Android and iOS over the next few weeks.
