YouTube Music is getting music recommendtations just like Spotify

Redaction - June, 20th 2020

One of the most acclaimed features of the world's most popular music streaming service, Spotify, is intelligent song recommendation. A huge database of songs, their musical and "paper" characteristics and especially the top algorithm allow Spotify to offer users to listen to songs that are similar to what they already have in the collection or have previously listened to. Developers of competing YouTube Music are also aware of the popularity of such a feature. Therefore, they try to implement the same instruments in the music version of this world-famous service. Sections for recommended and similar songs will take several forms in YouTube Music.

There are already various playlists available in the application, which combine songs of the same nature. For example, relaxing, energetic, training or for good concentration. But much more interesting will be the novelty that is just being prepared. In YouTube Music, it has to add recommended songs to the new tab that are similar to what the user is listening to. Double scrolling should work in this new section. This vertical will classically load additional compositions from the selected artist. In the horizontal one, there will be a panel for viewing similar authors and their songs. The new product was discovered in YouTube Music version v3.65, but is not yet widely available. We wonder how it will work.
