The beta programme for YouTube Music’s ‘Listening Room’ has begun

To “help shape the future of YTM,” the YouTube Music team is launching a “Listening Room” programme to provide early access to features and feedback to selected users.

The YouTube Music Listening Room sign-up form is “no longer accepting submissions.” It closed about 24 hours after it launched, citing a “overwhelming response” from the YouTube Music team.

Thank you for your interest in shaping YouTube Music’s future! We are no longer accepting submissions due to an overwhelming response. We are grateful to have enthusiastic users who are willing to provide feedback. 🙏

The programme will “ask for feedback on pre-development concepts, or even have casual discussions about your routines and needs as a music listener” in addition to beta testing new features.

We will continue to read this subreddit on a regular basis in order to hear your feedback. Thank you all for your input and suggestions!

If selected for the “Listening Room,” you’ll get early access to new features and join an “exclusive group of users” on Discord, with the YouTube Music product team, to provide feedback.

Another perk is a free year of YouTube Music Premium. Requirements include:

  • Be a lover of music
  • Use YouTube Music as your primary music streaming service for a year (you can still continue using another music streaming service at the same time)
  • Give regular feedback through conversations and polls on Discord
  • Agree to NOT share any information – i.e., taking screenshots, pictures, or recordings of conversations or early features with anyone outside of the Discord group
  • The Google Forms sign-up process asks how frequently you listen to streaming music and what you consider your primary service. The main YouTube app and YTM have an interesting distinction.

    In addition to listing favourite artists and genres, you are asked to choose one of seven possible user types:

  • Music is a huge part of my identity, and my friends know it. I’m always listening to new music, and I stay up-to-date with big music trends.
  • I like discovering new music, but it’s not a huge part of my life. I often listen to music while socializing, gaming, or eating.
  • I like staying in the know and being part of a music community, although I don’t have super strong opinions about music. I don’t want to miss out on the latest music trends.
  • I like to listen to the same music over and over.
  • I use music to change the mood and make moments more enjoyable. I usually rely on music services to stream music for me.
  • I like to listen to nostalgic music, and I usually listen to music in the background while doing chores, traveling, commuting, or working out.
  • Music defines and inspires me. I am highly opinionated about music, and I don’t care as much about music that is considered popular.
  • The team is also interested in the frequency and usage of the following form factors: phone, laptop / desktop computer, tablet, TV, smart speaker, smart display, and smart watch.

    There are questions about short-form video consumption as well as how frequently you listen to audio-first content such as podcasts, interviews, and audiobooks.
