The streaming service YouTube Music has gained a new feature that is already working in the Android and iOS mobile apps. This is the “Explore” tab, which includes releases and suggestions for you to discover new artists on the platform.
The feature, which has a compass-shaped icon, can be accessed via a button at the bottom of the application. In this new tab, you have access to a series of recommendations made by the application team, from recently released albums to playlists for different climates or genres, as well as new clips released on YouTube.
Thus, you can choose suggestions for relaxing, playlists to liven up a party or just classic rock artists, for example. The update had previously been announced by Google along with another feature: the display of lyrics during playback.
The “Explore” replaces the “Hotlist”, which used to perform a similar function previously, but in a less organized and standardized way. For the time being, the old function is still activated in the web version of YouTube Music.
