[AMA] Ask us anything about YouTube Music app’s new listening experience by Oct 21
12
Hi everyone!
 
Last week, we shared with our YouTube Music listeners (blog post) that background play will soon be available in Canada, free of charge, beginning on November 3, 2021. Alongside this update, some features will become exclusive to YouTube Music Premium listeners, such as on-demand music selection and unlimited skips. These changes are coming to Canada first, and we’ll keep everyone posted on global expansion plans – stay tuned.

More on what this means for YouTube Music listeners in Canada below,
 
Those who listen to music free with ads will now be able to
  • listen to music in the background 
  • shuffle play personalized mixes (that are made just for you!)
  • find the perfect mood mixes for activities like workout, commute and more
  • explore millions of songs & thousands of playlists, free of cost
 
Those who pay for a YouTube Premium subscription will be able to enjoy additional exclusive benefits, like the ability to
  • listen to songs on-demand 
  • watch videos on YouTube Music
  • skip tracks an unlimited number of times
  • enjoy YouTube Music without ads
 
Note: If Free listeners have uploaded songs on the YouTube Music app, they can continue to play them anytime, on-demand.
 
We know many of you have questions, so we’re excited to host an AMA with Product Manager Jason Robinson on this topic! Starting today, you can submit your questions and feedback in the comments below and we’ll respond by next Thursday.

On Thursday Oct 21 at 12 pm PST, Jason will be here in the community answering as many questions as possible – directly on this thread!

Please keep in mind that we will only be addressing questions related to YouTube Music app’s new listening experience since that is Jason’s expertise. All other unrelated questions won’t be addressed but know that we hope to bring more AMAs to you in the future, spanning other topics.
 
That’s all for now, I look forward to reading your questions!
 
– Hazel (on behalf of the YouTube Music team)

Will Canadian users created playlists or playlists in general be affected by this change?

Along wit Leon's question: Currently, all YTM playlists (except GPM migrated) are available inthe main YT app. Is on demand song play going to remain available in the main YT app? Will playlists that free uses created in the YTM app will still be available and playable in the main YT app? Also, along the same lines, will the official releases for albums/songs/etc... still be available in the main YT app?

A few questions from me.

  1. Will this new approach still allow users to listen to their own uploaded music in the background, and queue these songs in any order they like?
  2. Continuing the above, if a user plays music from their own uploads, will it autoplay music outside of their uploads too?
  3. What sound quality options will be available to free users?  Will they be able to choose between quality settings?

Why in YouTube are you able to add a song (or video) to multiple playlists at a time, while in YouTube Music you can only add the song to one playlist at a time? Why did you all remove such a significant, useful feature?
Please explain,
because I seriously have a huge issue with this as being able to add a song to multiple playlists at once probably saves upwards of 40 seconds of your customer's time... PER SONG. I told my family and friend (who were considering using YT Music) and they say they don't really want to use the service anymore because of this, same goes for me
