Finding great music online can be quite a challenge. Given the multitude of options available, even the most passionate fans might find it difficult to connect with the sounds that speak to them and their unique taste. 

To make exploring and connecting with your favorite tunes better and more enjoyable, YouTube has rolled out a set of new features for the YouTube Music app.

Easy access to favorites. In the coming months, YouTube Music App will launch a new feature on the Home tab that will help you quickly explore and listen to the songs and artists you’ve got on repeat. Simply open the YouTube Music app and right at the top of the Home tab, you’ll be greeted by your most listened-to music content.

Quick tastes of new music. This year, YouTube introduced the Samples tab, a personalized feed of short form video segments to get you to your new favorite music. Each immersive clip offers a glimpse into the artist, the video, and the feel of the song. Simply swipe vertically to experience a new song. Find something you like? Quickly add the song to your collection, share it with friends, create your next favorite playlist, kick off a great new radio station, watch the full video, visit the album page, or even use the song to create your own Short.

A personalized radio experience. YouTube Music is launching a new radio experience that allows you to create your own radios from the ground up. After picking which artists to draw inspiration from, you can tune your radio to suit your mood, level of discovery or familiarity of the songs, desired mood, and even if you’re looking for popular records versus deep cuts.

Create conversations around your favorite music. The YouTube Music app now has a Comments feature where you can share your thoughts on a new song, podcast, or old favorite and see what others in the community are saying. These comments will mirror the same conversations happening on YouTube, allowing you to stay connected with music lovers across the YouTube ecosystem.

Videoke-ready instant lyrics. For fans who love to videoke along to their favorite songs, YouTube Music launched timed lyrics, so now you and your friends can follow the words onscreen as you listen.
