YouTube Music adds new song rating options
Google Play Music is officially buried in the app graveyard. And now that? Well now all of our music related hopes and dreams are in the hands of the YouTube Music team.
The latest updates from Google improved the Android Auto experience and added Apple Watch support. Now the desktop version of Youtube music is getting some love that enhances the song rating like you’ve never experienced before.
Each section of a user’s personal music library can now be sorted in three ways: Recently Added, A to Z and Z to A. Whether you’re searching for your favorite Halloween jam or scrolling to find that artist you just remembered you love, these new song sorting options make locating faster.
Users have been able to sort library sections like this in the Android app for over a year. What does this mean? That at least the desktop version is finally catching up.
Each library section can now be sorted alphabetically or recently added.
YouTube Music has many weaknesses, but the library on the web is perhaps one of the worst offenders. The vertical list view found in places like the artist tab is a huge waste of screen space, and there are no quick shortcuts to jump between each letter of the alphabet like in Google Play Music.
Hopefully, today’s onboarding is just the first of many changes to come as we move forward. Google works to make YouTube Music a world-class streaming service worthy of competing with Apple Music and Spotify.
