YouTube Music has been on Android and iOS for quite some time.[ライブラリ]We’ve been working on a major redesign of tabs. YouTube Music on the web has undergone several library tweaks prior to its wide rollout.
As with the upcoming mobile revamp, the “last played” carousel at the top of the library is gone. You will immediately see a tab for Library or Uploads (if available). Following this are filters for ‘Playlists’, ‘Songs’, ‘Albums’ and ‘Artists’, which can be selected one at a time.
Playlists and albums remain in a grid view, but everything else switches to a list approach. When you open an artist, it offers an additional “subscriptions” filter. Finally, you’ll see a “sort by” filter on the right, including recent activity, recently added, or recently played.
The full-screen grid of artists, albums, and playlists is a little overwhelming at first, but it’s faster to start browsing than it used to be.
New libraries for Android and iOS have been rolling out slowly lately, but are far from being widely available. This was one of YouTube Music’s more bizarre feature rollouts. It appeared to have massive availability for several weeks last year, but was abruptly removed.
At that point it certainly felt feature complete and there were no pressing bugs, and communication on Google’s part could have been better. Hopefully, at this point the official launch will happen sooner or later.
Meanwhile, YouTube Music recently broadly rolled out playlist cards into its main home feed. These cards are very useful for viewing and navigating the first few songs in your playlist. It will amazingly change the feel of your app and make everything less siloed.
