In this video Joshua Smith gives you a hands-on look at the new YouTube Music app. After spending some time with the new streaming service it’s obvious that YouTube is aiming to carve out it’s turf in the streaming music landscape. Find out how the app works, where it beats other apps, and where it falls short.
