But YouTube Music is offering users a more personalized recap of the music they enjoyed listening to this year via the new “2021 Recap”. Now widely available on iOS and Android devices, the “2021 Recap” offers subscribers the chance to relive their favorite musical moments, share stats and personalize playlists.
In September 2021, YouTube announced that its Music and Premium subscribers have crossed 50 million subscribers, a milestone the company accredits to content diversity on the platform. As part of the YouTube Premium subscription plan, its Music streaming service integrates “watching, listening, and engaging”. And with a growing subscribers base, the service is emerging as a competing music streaming service against established services like Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and others.
