What you need to know
- YouTube Music users can now access four new mixes.
- All the new mixes include personalized songs and are refreshed every Monday.
- The personalized mixes are not accessible from the YouTube Music dashboard for all users just yet.
Over the last few weeks, Google has been working hard to make YouTube Music better by adding several new features. It began rolling out a new "Related tab" two weeks back and introduced the ability to swipe to switch tracks last week. As spotted by an eagle-eyed Redditor, YouTube Music has now added four new Mix playlists (via Android Police).
The new personalized mixes available to YouTube Music users include Chill Mix, Workout Mix, Energy Mix, and Focus Mix. All of the four new playlists are updated every Monday with new songs. Currently, however, it is not possible to access the playlists directly from the YouTube Music dashboard. You will first have to visit the link for each playlist to add it to your library. Once they have been added, they will appear on the YouTube Music app like any other playlist that you may have saved.
Google is also expected to add collaborative playlists to YouTube Music very soon. A "Collaborate" button was added to the app last month, although the functionality has not been enabled yet. More such features are expected to be added to the app in the coming weeks, as Google prepares to finally kill Play Music by the end of this year.
