Way 2. Download Music from YouTube for Free via Online Downloader

Another way to download music from YouTube for free is to use the online tool YouTubeMP3. It is a web-based YouTube Music downloader that can convert YouTube videos into MP3 files for free. It allows you to search for your favorite songs or playlists to download them with one simple click on a computer, phone, or tablet.

However, YouTubeMP3 doesn't support downloading all songs from a playlist at once. You can only download singles in the playlist one by one.

If you don't mind the drawbacks, you can try this free online YouTube Music downloader with the steps below.

Way 3. Download Songs on YouTube Music [Premium Required]

If you have upgraded your YouTube Music account to the premium subscription, you are allowed to download songs from the YouTube Music app on your iPhone or Android.

All you need to do is find songs that you want to download and tap the three-dot menu to select Download. Or, you can open your favorite playlist and directly tap the download arrow on its detail page.

Download YouTube Music on Phone

Plus, you can try automatic downloads of the YouTube Music app. When the Smart Downloads feature is enabled, based on your listening history, music will be automatically downloaded for you every night when your device is connected to Wi-Fi. You are allowed to play downloaded music offline for up to 30 days without the internet.

Turn on Smart Downloads

However, the downloaded songs may become inaccessible under certain circumstances, such as when your subscription expires or if you have downloaded songs on too many devices. In such cases, TuneFab YouTube Music Converter is recommended to help you listen to YouTube Music offline without premium.

FAQs about Downloading Music from YouTube Music

Can I Transfer the Downloaded YouTube Music to iTunes on iPhone?

After downloading music from YouTube Music, you might encounter a problem in that you can't transfer songs to other devices due to DRM restrictions. Therefore, you can't sync your YouTube Music with your iPhone via iTunes.

However, there is a solution to this issue. TuneFab YouTube Music Converter can be a helper to convert and download YouTube Music as MP3 files to iTunes, and then sync the MP3 music to your iPhone. This way, you can enjoy your YouTube Music songs on any device you want.

How Long Do Downloads Last on YouTube Music?

If you subscribe to a premium account and download music from YouTube Music directly, you should keep your subscription active to prevent your downloads from expiring. Plus, you need to reconnect to the internet at least once every 30 days to maintain your downloaded songs.

If you want to permanently save the downloaded YouTube Music songs and play them without any restrictions, we still recommend you resort to TuneFab YouTube Music Converter.


In conclusion, we have summarized three methods for downloading YouTube music to MP3 files: the official app, online tool, and third-party downloader. To use the official method, you are required to pay for a premium account. The online tool is convenient, but sometimes it overloads and only downloads music from playlists one-by-one.

If you want to download multiple songs and playlists without premium, we recommend the intuitive software TuneFab YouTube Music Converter for achieving quick conversion. With it, you can download desired high-quality YouTube music with simple clicks.
