Brief news items and worthy reads from around the web:

Beta tests in India for YouTube Go: YouTube has introduced a beta test for its YouTube Go app in India. The service is focused on low-income users, allowing them to preview videos, save¬†clips offline, and share with friends on the app without using data.¬†“With the rapid transformation sweeping India’s mobile internet landscape, we know there will be an even greater demand for a fast and video app,” YouTube Product Manager Jay Akkad said.

Music services become memes: SoundCloud and Bandcamp are well-known services for contemporary musicians, but they’ve been getting an extra boost of promotion from a recent meme. Goofy photos comparing the perception of SoundCloud as an outlet for up-and-coming hip-hop and Bandcamp as a hub for indie and art music have been appearing on social media.
