After 3 years of limited availability, Google is ditching YouTube Red and is replacing it with two new services with grand ambitions.

Just a few hours after Re/code spilled the beans, YouTube has gone ahead and made YouTube Music official. With YouTube Music, Google/YouTube is offering you a single platform to access all your music and discover new ones as well.
YouTube will be launching a new version of its music service called YouTube Music next week where it will be offering customers access to on-demand music and its original content. The service will replace YouTube Red, which offered a similar service and even removed ads from all the videos on the platform.
For the first time ever, YouTube has made it to the top grossing charts on the iTunes App Store. This is thanks largely to the YouTube Red subscriptions that can be purchased within the app, along with the Super Chat feature which allows users to offer tips during live broadcasts on the platform. The data was shared by analytics group Sensor Tower.
Google is introducing a new dark mode to the YouTube app for iOS. The new “dark theme” can be activated by going to the Settings menu from under the account option.

Back in October, the YouTube TV team announced that the app would arrive on Apple TV “soon”. Unfortunately, that didn’t pan out.

And thankfully, this new feature is not exclusive to YouTube Red subscription. So how to get on the dark side with YouTube? Read on to find out.
Back in October, the YouTube team officially announced that it was bringing the YouTube TV app to more devices, which would effectively broaden the service’s reach in a big way.
