Google is apparently looking to overhaul the playlist UI for the mobile version of YouTube Music. Once the new UI has downloaded to your phone or tablet (whenever that is), you’ll see the name of the person who created the playlist, along with the day the update was performed. The playlist name is in a larger font with the description below it. And navigating the app is a little easier as icons for to downloadI add to libraryI playI componentsand the overflow menu with three dots are all on one line making them easier to find.
New UI is being tested for YouTube Music playlist for iOS and Android
Note that the new look only appears for playlists and not albums. That seems unusual, as both playlists and albums like to share the same user interface. And thanks to the new design, users can also enjoy viewing cover art of the albums that host the songs in the playlists. Google isn’t just making these changes lightly, so rest assured there are some reasons for the rating, even if it’s just to let users enjoy a slightly improved experience.
