When Google switched Google Play Music on YouTube Music It was clear to me that the process of achieving a competitor worthy of Spotify would not be easy. Little by little the service was updated and, Today, it’s much more efficient than it was a few years ago. However, it continues to introduce changes, some of which are invisible like a new recommendation algorithm, and others are more prominent.
Create playlists from song queues
One of the novelties of Android, which was already present in iOS, is the ability to put several songs in a queue to listen to … and later turn that list into a playlist by simply pressing a button, something that will be especially loved by those who They want custom listings.
Improvements in TVs and watches
In addition to the phone-specific changes, Google has updated the YouTube Music versions for smart TVs and smartwatches.
On TVs, there will no longer be duplicate songs in the “Listen Again” section. In smart watches we can play randomly downloaded music.
Other small improvements
Other changes are the inclusion of Family Mix for those with an account linked to other people in their families, or the ability to share artist pages in apps like Snapchat.
YouTube Music keeps getting better little by little, but Google needs something more, perhaps in the realm of pricing or promotions, to beat a well-known player like Spotify.
