The mobile, as well as the desktop interfaces, are quite possibly identical. The home screen shows quite a list of quintessential categories: favourites, recommended, new, also with moods to ascertain your choices. From there, you can switch over to search for a particular artist or a song, peruse a curated video hotlist, or scrutinize your library.

If you’re hearing a music video, you can easily switch to audio-only by clicking on a “song” at the top of the display. Doing so displays the actual audio version, instead of just reeling the music video audio sans-video in. This is amazing because it removes any superfluous dialogue comprising in a music video that isn’t available in the album edit.

You can also develop a playlist by just tapping the three aligned, vertical dots by the playback control module. This opens up a menu of multiple options containing download, add to queue, add to playlist, start radio, and much more. If you’re building a new playlist, name it and pick whether it’s public, unlisted, or private.

Note: Whenever you create a playlist, it also develops the playlist for your normal YouTube account, too. We hope that YouTube fixes this in the future just like how it did with artist subscription overlap.
