YouTube Music and YouTube are too interlinked for many individuals’s tastes, and it seems that Google is finally taking extra steps to decouple the providers. The YouTube Music app has extensively rolled out a (beforehand noticed) choice that permits you to hide liked music videos from YouTube (as seen on Reddit). Unfortunately, the setting does not apply to liked songs in the video streaming service, and suggestions and the watch historical past are nonetheless typically bleeding over from one platform to the opposite.
When you head to music.youtube.com or the YTM app in your cellphone and open the settings from the account menu in the highest proper nook of the interface, you are greeted by a brand new choice: Show your liked music from YouTube. The toggle is turned on by default, so if you do not need your liked YouTube music videos to indicate up in YTM, it’s important to swap it off manually. Once that is carried out, you need to discover that videos you liked on YouTube not seem in YTM. That’s significantly nice for some videos that YouTube erroneously acknowledges as music.
Unfortunately, there is not a corresponding setting in YouTube itself, so liked YTM songs nonetheless seem on the video platform. On a associated notice, I’m irritated that tune suggestions are nonetheless bleeding over from YTM to my YouTube homepage. And typically the music historical past can even seem in YouTube, significantly whenever you ask Google Assistant to begin a playlist in your TV or use the YouTube Music Android TV app (which is only a glorified shortcut to the regular YouTube application, in order that’s no shock). These are two extra issues the builders ought to deal with to separate the 2 providers.
You can obtain the newest YouTube Music launch for Android from the Play Store or over at APK Mirror, but it surely appears to be like like the brand new choice is coming as a server-side swap that must be out there on any latest model of the app.
