Smart search: YouTube Music search is intelligent enough to come up with correct songs, even if users don't know exactly what they're looking for. For instance, you can search for "that rap song with flute". It removes ads from all the videos and also lets you play them in the background.

Users can also download their favorite tracks. "Plus, your Offline Mixtape automatically downloads songs you love just in case you forgot to".
