On Android, YouTube Music is testing a new playlist revamp

One thing of note is there appears to be no button for shuffling. There’s also no way to quickly see how many songs are in the playlist, unlike other music streaming services. Reports of the new interface online seem limited to social media for now – so the beta test may not even be available in the United States. The images below collected by 9to5Google show the new redesign on a Galaxy Tab A7. A French user downloaded a YouTube Music app update and saw the new interface. It appears to be limited to playlists, since the YouTube Music album view remains the same.

Google intends to improve YouTube’s music discovery features. On Android smartphones, the YouTube Music playlist function is being redesigned. It’s worth noticing that the new display emphasises who made the playlist and when. The current view only displays the year in which the playlist was last updated. The cover art follows, with a highlighted artist image and vertical text. The YouTube Music logo has been added to the top-left corner.

The new YouTube Music playlist redesign also applies to community-generated playlists. Community generated playlists have been one of the biggest reasons that Spotify has dominated the music streaming space. Now the YouTube profile is named at the top of these playlists.
After early feedback was largely negative, Google has been rolling out changes to the YouTube Music experience. The switch from Google Play Music to YouTube Music has been an especially bitter pill for some users to swallow, given that some features available in GPM are no longer available in YouTube Music.

“Just please copy Google Play Music. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel and make this more complicated,” reads one user’s complaint on Google Support forums. “I was completely blown away at how bad YouTube Music is,” another confesses. “The way it’s organized is clunky and not user-friendly. Simply switching from one song to the next takes way too long.” “If I have to use this crappy app to listen to music, I will be switching to Spotify or something else,” the user concludes. Ouch. No wonder so many changes are coming to the YouTube Music app.
