How To Download Music from YouTube: The Easy Way

Streaming music services like Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music have made listening to music as easy as a click. But not so much if you want to save that favorite song or album for offline playback. Luckily, YouTube has an answer: its YouTube Music app. The YouTube Music app is your one-stop shop for streaming and downloading videos from YouTube — and the process is fairly simple once you know how. Follow these five steps, and you’ll be able to download music from any video on YouTube in no time.

Download music from YouTube videos

If you’d rather not sit through an entire video to get to the good part and start bopping your head to the beat, you can download any song from every video on YouTube. This is especially handy when you’re watching a long video that’s not available as an audio version (like most movies). Or, maybe you just want to save a song for later. Whatever the reason, you can download any song from YouTube. Here’s how: – Click on the circular arrow icon next to any of the preview thumbnails on any video. – Choose the “Download At” option. – Choose the quality you’d like (they’re all low-quality for smaller file sizes, and high-quality for larger ones). – Click “Download All” to start saving the song. – The song will appear in the library under the “Downloaded From” option and be available for offline playback through the music app.

Add videos to your playlist

You can also create playlists from any video on YouTube. Playlists are great for listening to a single song or an entire playlist all at once. You can also easily create a new playlist using the music app. Here’s how: – Search for any video. – If the video is not in the search results, click on the circular arrow icon next to a video’s preview thumbnail and choose “Playlist” from the menu that appears. – Choose “Create playlist” and name it, then click the circular arrow icon next to the playlist to add it to your library. – Use the music app to play back your playlist or add songs to it.

Download songs and albums

Now that your music is saved in its own playlist, you can easily access it whenever you want. But you can also download it as a song or album so you can save it for offline playback. This can come in handy, especially if you’re trying to avoid pricey data charges. – Search for the video again (or any other videos) and open its page in the YouTube app. – Choose the song or album you’d like to save. – Now, click the circular arrow icon next to any song or album’s thumbnail. – Choose “Save/Download” from the menu that appears. – Choose your desired quality and location (if you don’t want to save it, just click “Download”). – Now the music is saved in your library and ready for offline playback.

Set up a music ad-free account

If you’d like to avoid ads while downloading music, you can set up a music ad-free account. This is a good option if you want to download music to listen to on your computer or save offline. It’s also the only way to download music to an Android TV device. – Go to your YouTube music app and click on your account icon. – Click “Settings” and then “Set Up A Music Ad-Free Account.” – Fill out the information requested and select the subscription you’d like to use. – You’ll see a confirmation message with your account information. – Tap “Okay” to confirm your account. – The next time you log in, you’ll be prompted with a message saying your account is now ad-free. – Follow the steps to set up your account again if you want to use the same subscription.

Use aTube Catcher Pro

Tube Catcher Pro is a paid tool that can help you download YouTube music. It’s only available for Android, and it costs $3.49 for a one-month subscription. So, what does it do? It searches for videos on YouTube and downloads the audio in order to build playlists and add the music to your library. All you have to do is search for a video, select the songs you want, and then choose the “Add To Library” option on the playback screen. If you want to save the songs in your library, you’ll need to select “Send To Device,” or you can choose the “Open In Music App” option to add them to your library.

Wrapping Up: Is YouTube Music Perfect?

YouTube Music is an incredibly convenient way to browse and listen to music on the platform. It’s also a great way to save your favorite music for offline playback. The one major downfall of the app is that the music on YouTube is licensed by the record labels and available only on the platform — so you can’t use the app to listen to music on services like Spotify, Pandora, or Apple Music. However, with the switch to a new music model, YouTube Music is positioned to take over as the leader in streaming and downloading music.
