Looking much like the usual YouTube app, YouTube Music also has the same feature wherein you can watch official MVs,  live performances, remixes, covers, and user-uploaded content. You can also skip as many songs and videos as you like without paying the subscription fee. However, in order to enable the background play feature you have to sign up for YouTube Music Premium for P129 a month.
