Play Music subscribers to get YouTube Music Key too

When Google announced YouTube Music Key, a streaming music video service they are introducing to the market, they also said that those who will be paying for the monthly subscription will also get a Google Play Music along with it. But what about if what was the other way around? Do Play Music subscribers also get the newest streaming as well? Well, we got our answer late last week, as existing Play Music account holders received an email that they will be automatically have YouTube Music Key as well, without paying more.

YouTube now brings easier music search, subscription service

If you're one of those who leaves a YouTube playlist streaming on your device or desktop while working or studying or reading, then the newest update from the video network might make you dance like Taylor Swift in Shake It Off (Hi Spotify). The app will now make it easier for you to look for your favorite songs (and even albums) from your favorite artists, and will now even offer a streaming subscription service. Just think of it as Google Play Music but with videos.

YouTube offers live broadcast capabilities for Android mobile

App developers can now add another functionality for the apps they're creating as YouTube announced their WatchMe for Android project, where live broadcast capabilities can now be added within the app itself. Although still in the experimental stage, developers can access the project through GitHub and customize the WatchMe features for whatever you'll be using it for (let's hope not for nefarious reasons). Some brands have already applied this to their existing apps and it just might enhance even more your mobile experience.

HomeTube makes access to YouTube simpler for children

Children nowadays rarely watch television shows on the actual TV and will instead prefer to borrow your Android phone or tablet to browse for old and new episodes and other videos on YouTube. But if you really think about it, the YouTube app on your device is bit tricky to navigate, even for young children who are part of the mobile generation. That’s where a new app called HomeTube comes in, as it will make viewing simpler (and safer) for the young ones who borrow your phone or tablet.

YouTube Music Key tipped to be new music subscription service

What do you do if you have one of the world’s largest online database and repository of music – some under labels, some indie, some without labels – all searchable and viewable at the click of a button? Why, you think of ways to profit from it, of course. It honestly baffled me why it took this long for YouTube – and by extension Google – to think about this. But “YouTube Music Key” is coming soon.

Google Update: G+ Chromecast support, minor tweaks

Ahead of Google’s normal update Wednesday, APKs of the updates to their first party apps have begun rolling in. Google+ has a pretty substantial update enabling Chromecast support while other Google products like YouTube, Chrome Beta and Google Search have gone through minor enhancements. They are not enough to warrant major announcements probably, but of course we still need to be aware of them.

Live on Youtube app updated, more Xperia devices supported

We talked about this cool app a while back, which allows Sony Xperia device users – in actuality, it was initially just for the current flagship, the Sony Xperia Z2 – to broadcast live video over their Youtube channel. An update for the “Live on Youtube” app has just rolled out from Sony, and we’re getting news that more devices are supported.

Content is king: social media apps update picture and video features

Social media is an ever-changing animal that brings about new trends, wants and needs everyday. Trends are not dictated by brands or social media entities, but by the users themselves. And while the adage that “content is king” still holds true for the most part, it is not content that can just be read: it lives, moves and breathes. In other words, pictures and videos are the content that rule the social media stratosphere as of this moment. The new updates on social media apps testify to this as well.
