How to Download YouTube Music to Computer
YouTube Music is one of the best music streaming services so far. Unlike Spotify, Apple Music, and other competitors, YouTube Music gives you easy access to official song audios and videos in one single place. It's free to use, but paying for the Premium version gives you background listening and lets you download either individual tracks or entire playlists or albums for offline playback on your mobile device.
However, it is noteworthy that the download function is only available for mobile devices. Laptop and desktop users still cannot enjoy downloaded music offline due to there being no official desktop application for YouTube Music at this point. In addition, you can't download solely using the web player in a browser, either.
For computer users wishing to learn how to save audio from YouTube Music for offline playback on the computer, we will offer an easy workaround to help you download YouTube Music to your computer.
