How to Switch to Audio Mode On YouTube Music App

What’s on music news this week? I’d tell you what’s on music news, its YouTube music app. Today, we are going to guide you on how to switch to audio mode on the YouTube Music app.

By default, when you download the YouTube Music app and open it to play a song, the app plays the song in a video mode except the song does not have a video yet, maybe it’s a new release. To an extent, it’d look like you are watching a song on the main YouTube app.

As cool as that sounds, it’s not every time people enjoy watching as listening. So you might want to switch to audio-only mode.

Terms to Switch to Audio Mode

Video mode tends to consume more of your data subscription than audio mode and under a poor internet or Wi-Fi connection, you really won’t enjoy any song playing in video mode. Another reason to switch to audio mode, I guess.

For this to work, you have to be signed in to the YouTube Music app with your Google account. First time using the YouTube Music app, you might not get the option to switch even if you follow the guide below.

You also have to subscribe to any of YouTube music premium membership plans then you could choose whether to listen to your music or watch its video.

While The Song is Playing

  • Open the YouTube music app and select a song to play.
  • Look to the top of the music play screen and tap on “Song” to switch to audio mode. This will play only the song. If you’d like to switch back to video mode, tap on “Video” at the top of the screen which would play the song’s music video unless it doesn’t have one.
