Google's latest endeavor into streaming music services has a slight learning curve, only because it takes some inspiration from YouTube in how it handles your music. When you first start service, you're asked to pick some artists you like. Those selections are important because they direct listening suggestions made by YouTube Music. When you subscribe to an artist, you can find him or her in the Artists section of your library. After your initial selection of artists you like, you can continue to fine tune the app's suggestions with a thumbs up or down on an album or song. Open the app, view the currently playing song, and you'll find a thumbs down and a thumbs up on either side of the playback controls.

Google might not have as many YouTube Music subscribers as Spotify, but it has way more software engineers. It's now applying some of those smarts to better compete against its rival with a new automated playlist called "Discover Mix," spotted by 9 to 5 Google and some Reddit users. It's very similar in concept to Spotify's "Discover Weekly," in that it helps you find new songs and artists in line with your taste and listening history. I didn't get a chance to test it much myself and I'm not a YouTube Music user , so the selections it presented me were pretty random.

You're watching a video on YouTube, and it has a catchy song playing in the background. You want to find the song from this video, but how do you figure out what music it is?

You have just finished watching a video on YouTube and really liked the song that was playing in that video. While you are on a YouTube video page, click the video statistics button available below the video player and you will see detailed information about the song including the name of the artist and the album. This trick will only work for videos that are using music from the Audio Swap Library. Option 2 - If a YouTube video includes a popular sound track, you can use a music identification services to figure out the name of that song. These services can identify instrumental music as well.

Maybe some of these tweets will have more information about the video or you can consider contacting the people who shared that video on Twitter for clues. This is a good option when you are trying to research foreign music. Option 4 - If you can understand the lyrics of the music video, transcribe the first few lines and put them in Google.
