YouTube Music update adds a comment section to the Now Playing screen

What you need to know

  • YouTube Music is rolling out with a new UI for the Now Playing screen.
  • The UI adds a row of options to easily interact with a song, including a section for comments.
  • Album art is also larger and song titles are now aligned to the left.

YouTube Music has been going through quite a number of changes lately, and the latest one makes the streaming service a little more like YouTube, for better or for worse.

9to5Google spotted the new Now Playing UI rolling out to YouTube Music, which now includes larger album art that takes up a bit more of the screen. Underneath it is a horizontal row of menu items, which now houses the like and dislike buttons. You’ll also find the option to save a song to a playlist, share a song, download a track, or activate the radio based on the current song playing, options that were previously (and still are) available when tapping the album art.
