If you already subscribe to music services like Spotify, there is no need to purchase YouTube Music Premium. While sometimes you may want to listen to some YouTube music on your Android offline, how you can get this done as offline listening is not available in the free version? Don't worry. In this article, we will show you three accomplishable ways to download music from YouTube on/to Android.

Method 1. YouTube to MP3 Converterer Apps

The first way we recommend to download music from YouTube Music is using a YouTube to MP3 converter app. While you couldn't find any apps used for downloading YouTube videos and audio in Google Play as this is against YouTube's terms and conditions. Still, you can find some apps outside of Google Play, like YouMp34, Tubemate, SnapTube, and VidMate. Here we will take VidMate as an example to show how to rip music from YouTube on Android devices.

Step 1. Install VidMate from its official site. You need to enable the option to install apps from unknown sources to get it. 

Step 2. Tap YouTube on the home screen. Then Search for a YouTube song or enter a YouTube music video URL inside VidMate. You can filter the results and search type on the interface. Locate the music you want to download and hit the download arrow icon.

Step 3. You will find multiple download options in the popup. Choose a format (M4A or MP3) and the quality you prefer under the Music tab. 

Step 4. Hit the download icon at bottom of the page to save the YouTube music. After the download is complete, you can tap the download arrow icon on the home page or enter your profile page to check the downloaded music.
