YouTube Red goes live today! Watch videos with no more pesky ads!

The age of ad-free videos and music is upon us as YouTube Red goes live starting today! When you open your YouTube app or page today, you will see a new logo for the Red feature and you may get bombarded with some ads prompting you to try it out… by buying it, of course.

The irony of it all is that, in order to escape 15-second pre-roll ads or click to escape banners, you will have to sit through one about YouTube Red anyway. The feature is allowed on any platform where you log in and it requires you to pay $9.99 per month to be ad-free. That’s not all you get for this money though, as you will also get offline caching that lets you view videos offline, plus some exclusive content from popular YouTubers that you will not be able to see elsewhere (at least not legally – lets be honest, we all know how the Internet works already).



You can get a subscription by paying up to Red directly or if you already have a Play Music subscription already available. The price for each feature is the same, and if you buy one sub, you get the other for free. You can also get a 1 month free trial of YouTube Red if you want to be sure about what you are getting before signing up your money for it. You can give it a look at the source link below.

YouTube Music Key rolling out to Play Music All Access subscribers only

YouTube Music Key is rolling out today, and only All Access subscribers are getting it. The app presents offline playback from YouTube at 360p or 720p, ad-free music videos and background playback. If you subscribed and have the app on your mobile, you can use it on the web as well.


The rollout is limited to Play Music All Access subscribers, even those who didn’t subscribe to the app specifically. An expanded rollout to those who subscribed for YouTube Music Key could follow in a few days.

Android Wear 4.4W.2 build KNX01Q rolls out to LG G Watch, other devices to follow

Android Wear 4.4W.2 build KNX01Q has begun rolling out on LG G Watches today, and among the most important updates you will find GPS support and Offline Music support. These updates solve a nagging problem Gear users have been having: not being able to listen to offline music via Bluetooth and not being able to track activities without a phone. The LG G Watch is the first Wear device which benefits from these interesting additions so far.

Sadly, G Watch doesn’t have an incorporated GPS chip, so the support will not be that much helpful by itself. The only Gear device that will benefit from the GPS support feature will be Sony Smartwatch 3 which will receive the update “soon”, as shown on the Play Store.

LG G Watch is now capable of pairing with Bluetooth audio devices and, even if it is still unclear how you can transfer your music to the watch, you can play existing music. It is also unclear if the new Play Music option initiates playback only from the phone or from the watch as well when it is disconnected. Another update to the Android app on the phone may completely unlock the music option.

The update is released in stages and most people will have to patiently wait for the update.
