YouTube Music is one of the most popular music streaming services available in the market. However, it only comes second to Spotify which is an older player in the market with better features and intuitive app design. But YouTube Music is getting better with each update and the latest one brings personalized playlists and mixes which are Spotify’s one of the top features.
Earlier this month, the YouTube Music app was finally updated (server-side) to add gapless playback feature which was missing on the service for a long time. And now, once again, it has been updated to add personalized playlists feature which is a must-have on any music streaming app. Spotify is popular for this feature which automatically creates playlists based on user’s listening habits. YouTube announced the rollout of this new feature on its official blog.
According to the official announcement by YouTube, its Music app will now show three personalized playlists namely ‘Discover Mix’, ‘New Release Mix’, and ‘Your Mix’ to the users. As their name suggests, the Discover Mix will create a playlist of 50 lesser-known tracks every week from the artists the user tends to listen regularly. The second playlist named New Release Mix will include newly released tracks every Friday from the user’s favourite artists and other recommended artists. Lastly, Your Mix will contain tracks the user is used to and some additional suggested tracks.
To make use of the new personalized playlists on YouTube Music, make sure to update the app to the latest version from the Play Store or the App Store, depending on the device you use.
