Even although Google gives a devoted music utility, a great chunk of individuals nonetheless cannot shake the behavior of catching their favourite tracks on YouTube. Google beforehand tried to immediate customers to switch to YT Music, but it surely looks like it is bored with doing in order it is testing a brand new YouTube interface that is meant to enhance the music listening expertise.
The interface has been noticed on iOS (through 9to5Google), the place a “Show listening controls” button pops up for some when watching music movies. Tapping it pulls up a variety of controls proper beneath the participant, full with the identify of the video in a sizeable font.
Closer to the underside of the display are the like, save to playlist, and playback pace buttons — notably, no dislike option is to be seen.
To guarantee YT Music would not get sidelined due to this new interface, this characteristic is restricted to Premium subscribers who already pay for entry to YT Music.
For now, this solely appears to be in testing, and I have not been in a position to reproduce it on my finish. We’ll replace the story when it makes it to Android or rolls out extra extensively.
