YouTube Music is the application that will replace Google Play Music in Spain, in fact, we can already pass all our music easily. Therefore, the application is gradually gaining ground in the market, also acquiring new functions and begins to reach more devices. Google begins to deploy it already on televisions with Android TV.
One of the great disadvantages of the application was that did not support Android TV. Luckily, it seems that this is starting to change already, because YouTube Music begins to work on televisions, in the YouTube app. Although it is somewhat limited and it is having many problems.
This is how the new gesture of YouTube Music works to pass songs
YouTube Music launches a new gesture with which to be able to skip songs while we are playing music and that is already being launched.
YouTube Music for Android TV is real but gives problems
An update from the server side for the YouTube app on Android TV is starting to arrive. Thanks to it, you can see that a new YouTube Music tab has been introduced, where we can also see the logo of the application. It provides users with the usual functions of the music app (the songs you like, recommendations, discover and explore, your playlists …).
Although it has already started dating, still doesn’t work for most users. Most of the functions don’t seem to work, except for auto play when selecting a playlist, artist or radio. Presumably, the rest of the features will start working soon for users on Android TV, although Google has not said anything so far about this new update.
This integration of YouTube Music on Android TV has begun, although you can see that many of the functions that we know in the version of the app for phones are missing. Uploaded music is not displayed, playlists are not allowed to manage, songs cannot be repeated, album covers or songs are not displayed when playing, lyrics are not displayed, and full access is not available from the library. The application is shown in a very limited version therefore.
This certainly doesn’t seem like a good method to integrate YouTube Music into Android TV. Since most of the functions that make this app are of interest to users are missing. Although this is a first release, so it is likely that Google will be rolling out the rest of the functions over time. We await more news soon.
