If listeners wish to turn off the video option, they can access their settings and slide "Don't play music videos" to "on." The option is available to both premium and non-premium members. The YouTube Music app, which launched in 2018, is available for both Android and iOS , and in over 60 countries ranging from Austria to Nicaragua.
