Most music streaming services have a radio function that generates a playlist based on a selected song or artist, but it usually lacks any kind of customization options. Essentially, you choose one song or artist and YouTube Music creates a playlist accordingly, similar to how Spotify and Apple Music work.
Google has introduced a new version of the radio feature in YouTube Music, which gives users greater control over their listening experience. The updated feature allows users to choose up to 30 artists to create their radio station and select how often those artists will repeat. Additionally, users can apply filters that modify the mood of the generated playlist, such as “chill,” “downbeat,” and “pump-up.”

YouTube TV hits 5 million subscribers and is looking like the future of cable
One of the striking features of the updated radio feature is the ability to modify the parameters even after creating the playlist. Users can fine-tune their preferences and adjust the playlist according to their mood or taste by using the “Tune” option. The playlist can be saved for future listening, making it easier for users to access their preferred music.
While the new radio feature alone may not be enough to convince users to switch from Spotify or Apple Music to YouTube Music, it provides current YouTube Music subscribers with a more customized listening experience, which may encourage them to use the service more frequently. Furthermore, the feature may attract new users to try out YouTube Music, especially those who are looking for a more personalized music streaming experience.
