Youtube Music is going to make it easier for users to listen to their favorite music even when we are away from an Internet connection, allowing you to automatically download up to 500 songs that we have “liked” in the application. This feature will be available on Android devices for YouTube Music Premium subscribers.
This feature comes with the name of Smart Downloads and will allow us to have our favorite songs in the internal storage of the device, always downloading via WiFi at night hours up to a limit that we can specify in the application itself.
Smart Downloads arrives as an expansion of the Offline Mixtape, which once activated can create a list of songs that the user likes, while also searching for songs similar to those that the user likes to discover new artists, also downloaded in the storage of the phone.
