YouTube Music’s new playlist design is rolling out to more devices


Last updated: October 19th, 2022 at 17:19 UTC+02:00

YouTube Music has been receiving design changes over the past few months. It received the Material You buttons and a redesigned library tab. Now, the redesigned Playlist View on the YouTube Music app is rolling out to more devices. Notably, this improved playlist design was first released for Android tablets, and now it is rolling out to more devices worldwide.

According to the latest reports, if we go by the latest changes introduced to the playlist view design, this seems similar to the album view redesign that was introduced back in June, which featured larger cover art. The redesigned playlist view on the YouTube Music app shows the album or cover art in the middle, with the uploader details, playlist name, and description down below the cover art.

The change of position for the uploader details and playlist name is a nice one. Earlier, all the info was crammed beside the cover art, and it looked cluttered. Also, the buttons for the playback controls are getting re-positioned. The old YouTube Music playlist view had rectangular buttons for Shuffle and Play.

The redesigned playlist view hides the Shuffle button inside the overflow menu

The updated design places a bold and big circular Play button under the playlist description at the center, whereas other buttons, including Edit, Download, and Share the playlist or album are on either side of the big Play button. The Shuffle button, though, isn’t immediately visible in the new arrangement.

It is now hidden inside the overflow menu, which can be accessed by tapping the 3-dot icon beside the Play button. This shouldn’t be much of a problem, as the overall redesign looks pleasing to the eyes.

The redesigned YouTube Music playlist view is rolling out to Android phones in multiple countries. If you aren’t seeing any changes in your YouTube Music app, then we advise you to check if there is any update pending at your end. You could also try clearing the cache, force-stopping, or restarting the app to see the changes.
