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.

[Update: Spotted in the wild] Spotify will soon let you share control of your music queue with others

A good party should be an open party. Namely, it should have a few open things: an open door, an open bar (or two), and an open jukebox. That last bit can get more awkward than one would like as people fumble around with a computer or figure out how to connect their phones to the Wi-Fi network.

For about a year now the two services have been working together to deliver a bundle that gets you all that content at a reduced price.
