YouTube Music during 2020 it completely took the place of the now retired Google Play Music, and therefore it is time for the Mountain View giant to push hard on the service, intervening with important news, but also with small tricks.
The one detected by the colleagues of 9to5mac it is a simple detail, which, however, must be included in an overall picture aimed at enhancing the package of Google services, in general, from the most widespread – which will also affect you by radical changes, see Google Photos – to those with still large room for growth.
The interface of the site has changed slightly, and the novelty only affects YouTube Premium users. The sidebar, in fact, previously it consisted of five elements: Home, Trends, Subscriptions, Originals and Library. Now to this list YouTube Music is added as the penultimate element (visible both in compact and expanded form).
An addition that we cannot exclude will arrive in the future to also involve the rest of users, or the vast majority who have not subscribed to the Premium service: after all, YouTube Music is also available for free (with the presence of advertising). This is not a radical change, but even these small changes play a role when trying to promote a service: a side button visible to anyone could attract the attention of numerous users who may not even be aware of the platform.
