youtube new logo 640x640For an app to remain the same without receiving any updates or upgrades at all from the developer does not bode well for its future – in fact, it would mean the app would have a relatively short shelf life since competitors would have far outstripped it in terms of progress in the long run. Having said that, popular mobile app YouTube is in line for yet another update, where a recent APK teardown points (APK stands for Application Package File, and is a file format for the Android ecosystem) to the very real possibility of a Music Pass service.

This Music Pass service is said to be a streaming music service that will also be accompanied by offline video playback, where the latter feature would definitely be more than welcome for most mobile users. Snippets in the code teardown revealed the future “Music Pass” feature, where it references both background music playback in addition to having “no ads on millions of songs”. As for offline video, it does seem as though one is able to save their videos for offline viewing later in either low-quality (360p) or high-quality (720p). It remains to be seen just when will these features finally make their way to the masses.
