Pick your genre. With 12 music genres to choose from, you can select and switch any time. From blues to country to rock to jazz, just pick your favorite and listen. If you do not like a song, you can just hit Skip to move onto the next one. But, if you hear one you like, you can share it right from the main screen.
Check your weather. The app displays basic weather details for your current conditions along with a photo background to match. You will see your location, the temperature, and if it is cloudy or clear. You can switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius depending on your location and preference.
View the video. When a song plays, you can see the title and artist and there is an option to pop open the YouTube video at the bottom of the screen. So, you can watch as well as listen. Both the video and song can conveniently be paused if needed.
