YouTube Red – the final YouTube experience you ever needed

YouTube Red is finally upon us and a new life without ads has finally become a reality. Well, technically, the service goes live on October 28th, but we already know all the details. When you agree to a $9.99 monthly fee you will never have to see another ad on YouTube again; plus you get other nice perks to go with it.

Why is YouTube Red special?

 

This feature will stop streaming ads on ALL videos, including offline and playback viewing. Users who agree to this option will no longer see any banners, pre or mid-roll ads or text overlay ads on the videos they see. When it comes to embedded promotions on a channel the situation is different, as Google doesn’t have anything to do with them, meaning you will still see those. This feature will be available everywhere you log into your account to watch videos. This comes along with a new YouTube Music app that is siphoning some nice stuff for the Red.

What is most interesting and helpful about YouTube Red is the fact that it is linked with Play Music. If you pay a monthly Red subscription, you also get unlimited Play Music streaming and if you are already subscribed to Play Music you also get Red for free. This allows you to pay $10 for both apps in their subscription mode, which is a decent deal from Google.

 

It all starts in the US on October 28th, when new users will be able to try out YouTube Red for free for about a month. That is also when the Red subscription method becomes available but you can already subscribe to Play Music to get automatic access to it. Welcome to the official ad-free YouTube Red subscription world!

Nexus 6 to have Ambient Display feature similar to Moto X Moto Display

Nexus 6 has been the star of the week and it seems that more and more customers are drawn to Google’s newest flagship. Considering it was made by Motorola, you can practically look at it and compare it to Moto X and you will find countless similarities between the two.

The new Nexus has a feature similar to Moto Display, only in this instance it is named Ambient Display. The option is found under the display settings and it is described as the position of waking screen when the device is picked up or if notifications arrive. When the option is enabled, the notifications will appear automatically on screen when new ones arrive or when the phone is picked up.

The Ambient Display idiom appears on Nexus 6’s official Google Playstore page but there is no description of what the feature does. It does say though that the phone will last for around 250 hours on standby with the feature turned on and up to 330 hours when turned off.

The feature first appeared on the Moto X and was transferred to other Motorola devices afterwards. This appears to be a feature that translates to all Motorola devices, be they proprietary or not. Those accustomed to this particular functionality will not want to give it up.
