Finally, you can listen to Google’s tunes under the lock screen

There was a time when listening to music on YouTube was considered an unquestionably naughty activity. Uploads were rips from official videos, and the closest you could get to an official song was a lyric video from an obsessed fan.

Those days are long gone. YouTube has been responsible for countless musical success stories – from Bieber’s rise to fame (thanks a bunch, Google) to Psy hitting a billion views, there’s no question that everyone’s favourite video streamer is a bona fide platform for launching global tunes.

Want to channel all the good stuff from Google without the cat video chaff? If you’re in the US, you’re in luck: you can download YouTube Music today for streamlined song satisfaction.
