YouTube Music adds new personalization features and other changes

YouTube announced today a new update to Music that introduces new personalization features. The music streaming app is adding a few changes to its Home tab that allow you to listen to a set of personalized playlists and access songs based on your current activity.

The personalized playlists are called My Mix, providing up to seven new and personalized set of songs that will be available on the Home tab. The playlists contain songs from various artists, curated according to your taste. The curated lists also combine your favorite songs with new ones that might capture your interest. YouTube Music is also rebranding its Your Mix playlists into My Supermix, which blends your favorite songs in a single library.

Another change to the app's Home tab is the activity bar that provides access to four types of activity, including Workout, Focus, Relax, and Commute. Tapping on each activity icon will lead you to a dedicated personalized homepage containing playlists that match what you're doing at a given moment. In addition, the Workout tab includes up to four new personalized mixes featuring songs you already like on top of new recommendations. These filters were first seen in September as part of a test.

The latest changes are YouTube's way of taking on Spotify and other music streaming apps in terms of bringing personalization options to users. It remains to be seen whether these new features will help bolster YouTube Music's market adoption.
