YouTube Music is adding three Spotify-like personalized playlists

Like it or not, YouTube Music is here to replace Google Play Music. Ask any user though and they'll tell you the service isn't ready. Plenty of features are missing and music recommendations are nearly inexistent. That's about to change though as YouTube Music prepares to roll out three personalized playlists which are geared toward discovery.

YouTube Premium and Music launch in 8 new countries in the Middle East

Continuing its expansion across the globe, YouTube's paid Premium membership is making its way to my neck of the woods. The service is now available in eight new countries in the Middle East, most of which are in the GCC area. If you live around here, you probably didn't expect Premium to come to us this "soon" after its international launch, so the news is a nice late-night surprise.

YouTube Music debuts new weekly playlist, tests interface tweaks

Streaming music apps have been looking at ways to add value to the in-app experience for both users and artists alike. Spotify, being the biggest fish in the pond, has pulled off the most of these experiments, but upstart (in a very loosely relative sense) YouTube Music has had its innovations with video and art integrations, too. But today, it's gone to the core of its music serving experience with a new top releases playlist and some design changes in testing that could grab more plays for publlishers.

YouTube Music's revolutionary new feature allows you to sort albums and playlists by name [APK Download]

Google announced YouTube Music with much fanfare in 2018, pledging to reach feature parity with Play Music and eventually replacing the dusty service of old. However, despite promises, development is going extremely slow, and a lot of basic functions are still missing. The latest release of the Android app, version 3.29, coincides with a server-side rollout of a feature that gives you the revolutionary ability to sort albums and playlists by name.

YouTube Music is now integrated in Waze

Many of us use a phone for navigation in the car — the benefits of apps like Waze can't be overstated to commuters in busy cities. Waze is especially useful since the app even integrates controls for other music apps directly, so you don't have to swipe between apps or pull down the notification tray just to pause or skip tracks. Fixing a noteworthy and somewhat embarrassing omission, YouTube music now joins the ranks of other music apps which can integrate directly with Waze's controls.

YouTube Music adds toggle to seamlessly switch between music videos and music during playback

It was inevitable that Google's music streaming service would be video-focused once placed in the hands of YouTube, but plenty of folks interested in music have zero interest in watching the associated video. Thankfully for them, The YouTube Music app now lets you seamlessly switch between music videos and plain 'ol music with a single toggle, and you can even disable videos entirely by default.

YouTube Music can now act as a media player for files stored on your phone

Google has been pitching YouTube Music as an eventual replacement for Google Play Music since the company refocused what it was for last year, but it's still missing plenty of features. You still can't access your Google Play Music uploads from YouTube Music, and there's no easy way to import playlists or libraries between the two services. However, YouTube Music has just picked up the ability to play locally stored audio files — though, sadly, only via external means like file managers. In-app local media playback is still absent.

YouTube Music v3.03 and earlier: Device limits, personal audio library, autoplay, and more [APK Teardown]

With YouTube Music set to eventually replace Google Play Music entirely — the last GPM update with any appreciable change was a year ago — the developers are in the process of migrating features  so users won't be left wanting for too much. Since the last several versions have only contained minor visual tweaks and some of the signs of feature migration, we've been waiting for something more substantial to cover, and with the version number jumping to 3.0 and adding Android Auto support, this seemed like a good time. This post will contain the collective changes and teardown topics from the last few versions.

YouTube Music finally comes to Android Auto [APK Download]

There's probably no other feature that's more often cited as missing from YouTube Music than Android Auto support. Sure, you can manually start and control the app on your phone while it's connected to the car and get music, but this is clearly not what people are asking for. Hints about in-car support were added to the apk a few months ago, but that promise has finally come through. As of version 3.03, you can now use YouTube Music directly through the Android Auto interface.

YouTube Music now lets you add existing playlists to a new one

YouTube has already been the place many people go to build playlists and listen to their favorite new songs. With the addition of the YouTube Music app, it made finding and saving your favorite artists easier than ever. But building playlists wasn't always so easy, though, since you could only add one song to a playlist at a time using the add button through the app. That's been updated, and now you can add entire existing playlists to one of your own creation.
