Comments section to be added to YouTube Music’s ‘Now Playing’ screen


New Delhi (Best Hindu News): YouTube Music has redesigned its “Now Playing” screen with a new comments section that allows users to read and write comments directly from the app. As per a 9to5Google report, the redesign is currently being rolled out globally for iOS and Android devices. The New Comments button displays existing comments on the official music video on YouTube. Users can also type in their own content, which adds a more engaging social component to the app.

The comment button is located below the cover art. When a user selects the button, a panel slides up on the screen. Next to the comments are icons for like/dislike, save, share, download and radio, which were previously hidden and only accessible when users tapped on the album cover. Late last month, YouTube Music rolled out the Live Lyrics feature for music lovers globally on Android and iOS.

The existing Lyrics tab in Now Playing has been upgraded with a new design and larger text that sees much better spacing. When the song goes to the next line the page will refresh and move. Google-owned YouTube has also announced that it is testing a new feature on Android that will allow users to search for a song on the platform by humming it.

In the experiment, users can toggle on the new sung search features from YouTube voice search, and hum or record the song they are searching for more than three seconds so that the song can be identified.
