YouTube Music improvements
In addition to introducing the transfer tool in the YouTube Music app in May, Google has also improved and added new features to the app that are familiar to Google Play Music users. Changes have been made to auxiliary playlist creation, where users can quickly create playlists by adding recommended songs based on the songs in the current playlist. Users can also collaborate with other music lovers to create shared playlists called cooperative playlists. The app will also allow users to browse programmed playlists like Highline, Caribbean Pulse, Condition Underground and others.
Google has also introduced features and improvements to the YouTube music player page (available for Android mobile users) to give users better control over playback. The new “Browse” tab will allow users to find new releases, including albums, individual songs, and music videos. Available on mobile and web devices, this option also contains a catalog of playlists based on mood and gender.
YouTube Music is now available on Android TV through an update. The integration of the application with Google Maps allows subscribers to listen to music and get recommendations within the Google Maps interface.
