YouTube Music has officially added gapless playback

YouTube Music

For the last several weeks, gapless playback has rolled out to a few of the subscribers of YouTube Music. This feature is now officially available for all of the Premium users on the web client as well as Android app.

Gapless playback basically means that the next song shall start immediately after the ongoing track ends. This delivers a continuous listening experience, and is a must have feature for enjoying some of the music albums such as the work of Pink Floyd.

Currently, this feature requires a paid YouTube Music Premium of 9.99 dollars per month or a YouTube Premium subscription of 11.99 dollars, and is not at present, available on the ad-supported free tier. It is only available on the web and Android right now, but the iOS support is reportedly coming soon.


YouTube Music gapless playback will be rolled out for both of these platforms today, and it has been confirmed by checking on some devices.


This joins other features such as the setting of audio quality which has Low, Medium, High, and Always High preferences for mobile network as well as Wi-Fi. There is also an equalizer on Android for this app. In the last couple of weeks, YouTube Music has been making a number of small tweaks, but it still lacks the cloud locker of PlayMusic or the importing of old playlists.
