Music Player for YouTube: Better Music Streaming Review
Music Player for YouTube is an app for using YouTube as a streaming music player. It also supports other streaming services, like Apple Music and Spotify. Download Music Player for YouTube for iOS and experience the new way to enjoy YouTube!
The pro of this app is that it has all your playlists from various services, just one tap away. If you connect your YouTube, Spotify, and Apple accounts, the app browses all of them in search of the music you want. With it you can create separate playlists that don’t affect those you create on YouTube and convert them by searching the same tracks on other services.
Free users will be a bit distracted by insolent ads, but mostly you will not notice any design at all, as the app is meant to play music even with the screen off. It looks quite like any video streaming service, with an inevitable resemblance to the original YouTube. The tools are easy to master, and if you want to be in control of what you listen to, with Musitube it’s easy.
It just takes a search request to get your favorite music from any supported source. Then you can generate your own playlists and fill them with music, no matter which service provides it. There’s even more: you can convert your Apple Music service to replace its sources with those from YouTube (in case you cancel your Apple subscription, it will be useful).
If you have no YouTube subscription yet, don’t be surprised if you are redirected to the YouTube app, and the videos are only played with the screen on. This is not the app to get paid services for free. It helps you to get more from what you pay for.
It’s worth noticing that Musitube still requires a subscription for the services you use. That is, it cannot access Apple Music or play YouTube in the background unless you connect your accounts and have a subscription. Your benefit is better unified control and access to various services that almost surely have your favorite records.

The app is only available for iOS; it requires iOS 10 or later. Though Apple Music is available on Android as well, there may be some issues with using YouTube services on Android that Google can lock. Or maybe, considering this, the developers decided not to get involved.
Though the app is an alternative one, it still requires the YouTube Premium subscription to enjoy it in full. At the same time, it shows ads before starting a playlist or even a single track. You can purchase an ad-free advanced version for $2.99/month, which also includes a playlist converter and editor, a built-in playlist search system, and a playlist duplicator.
The Bottom Line
If you are so into music that one streaming service is not enough for you, and even three of them don’t exhaust your budget, then you can add another subscription and use them all from one app.
If you are ready to spend on legal streaming music, but you want maximum comfort and freedom, it makes sense to download Musitube Music Player for YouTube and rock it.
