Does this sound familiar? “Remember that one song from _____ that had the chorus go like ____?” Chances are the next thing you did was do a Google search with the first thing popping up being the YouTube video. If this sounds like you then you are one of the 1.3 billion people that go to YouTube to find music every month.

While Google likes to offer duplicate apps that do the same thing, like Google Play Music and YouTube Music, they only offered Android Auto compatibility for Google Play Music up until now. Google has said that YouTube Music and Google Play Music will operate concurrently, eventually Google Play Music users will all get migrated over to the YouTube Music platform.

For those that have a $9.99 monthly subscription to YouTube Music you receive ad-free playback, audio-only background playback, and downloading songs for offline playback. And for those asking, no you cannot watch music videos while you’re using Android Auto.
