Google Play Music Loses Another Feature

Viewers will now be able to access their saved playlists and liked songs in library from the YouTube Music tab in the app. Google has been adamant that regardless of whether or not YouTube Music will reach the parity of Play Music feature-wise, those using the latter will eventually have to switch to the former.

YouTube has announced several new features for YouTube Music on smart TVs and the new Google Chromecast with Google TV. The update also brings new visual effects to show album and playlist covers.

An official announcement in this regard isn't available, and as it turns out, the new feature isn't powered by a new software update. In fact, you can also use the service to buy music and download them to your device to listen to them on Google Play Music.

The main change YouTube made was to allow Android TV OS users to add music directly to their library. The new playback interface includes information like the song and artist name, and a progress bar as the music plays.

YouTube Music has now become Google's primary music streaming service.

More changes are expected in the YouTube Music TV application in the coming period.

For the time being, the transition from Google Play Music to YouTube Music is still under way, so hopefully, Google would manage to resolve other shortcomings in its subscription-based service before it pulls the plug on its old media platform. The company announced that the Google Play Music app will stop functioning completely by the end of this year.
