How to Download Mp3 Music

on June 03 at 11:09 AM
Mp3 best players give you the ability to rock out wherever and anywhere. Whether you have an iPod, San disk, Coby, or any other type of player, transferring music from your computer is a pretty straightforward process. Some players come with their own software, while others rely on programs that may already be on your computer. While the iPod only works with iTunes, other Mp3 players are typically less restricting.

Keeping some music offline is critical, because networks fail, Wi-Fi gets spotty, and we all get trapped in a car for hours on end at some point, with only our offline music to save us. YouTube Music is no exception to this rule, and while most of YouTube Music's download settings are pretty straightforward, there's a diamond hiding in the rough here that can keep you bouncing to new music every day even while offline.

As a reminder, offline playback is a feature of YouTube Music Premium. In order to download music, you need to be a subscriber. If you're a Google Play Music, YouTube Red, or YouTube Premium subscriber, YouTube Music Premium is included in your subscription.


Now then, let's get down(loading) with our bad selves!

How to change your download quality
Selecting your download quality is more important in YouTube Music than it might be in other music apps because YouTube Music can download video or audio, and that choice can have drastic differences in how much space your music takes up. So before we get to downloading, let's get this set the way we want it.

Select the quality level you desire.
Audio only will only store the audio of any video or song downloaded. This will allow you to download higher quality audio without dealing with the extra storage space HD video uses.
Medium 360p downloads the video and audio at a lower SD quality.
High 720p downloads the video and audio at HD quality.

Audio only is best
You can also choose the download quality during your first video or playlist download. The main YouTube app has a download quality option to Ask each time, which would be nice for YouTube Music where you might want mostly audio only except for a few lyric videos or favorite music videos. We can only hope that'll migrate to YouTube Music in the future.

How to download an individual song
While browsing YouTube Music, you'll no doubt come across a song or 50 that you'll want to download so you can listen to them later. Unlike Google Play Music or Spotify, you can download individual songs or videos without having to download an entire album or playlist, and it is easy to do.

Tap the three dot menu icon to the right of a song's title on the playback screen, album listing, or search results.
Tap Download.

How to download a playlist
Downloading individual songs is nice, but it can get time-consuming. Downloading playlists is much more efficient for downloading songs in bulk, and the option to download them isn't hidden in an options menu anymore.

In the Library tab, tap Playlists.
Tap the playlist you want to download.
Tap the download icon, the down-arrow icon between the playlist thumbnail and three-dot menu icons.

How to download an album
Now that traditional albums are a part of YouTube Music, you can download them just as you can playlists and videos, and the download button for albums isn't hiding in a menu like it is for songs and playlists!

In the Library tab, tap Albums.
Tap the album you wish to download.
Tap the download icon, the down-arrow icon between the Add to Library and three-dot menu icons.

How to download your Offline mixtape
Offline mixtape is an automatic playlist that YouTube Music will build and download based on what it thinks you like and how many songs you want it to download. The feature was YouTube Music's original offline option, and for much of its previous life was the only way to download music for offline playback.

These days, Offline mixtape isn't your only option, but it's one you'll definitely want to use. Offline mixtape is refreshed every 24 hours and tweaked according to what you're listening to. Think of it like a Spotify Daily Mix, except that it's available offline and you can control how big or small the playlist is.

Here's how to get it set up:

In the Library tab, tap Downloads.
YouTube will suggest that you download Offline mixtape. Tap Turn On.
