YouTube Music Gets a New ‘Collaborate’ Button for Playlists


INTRO: If any of you and your close ones use YouTube Music a lot, so this news is for your guys, you will soon be able to create collaborative playlists in the app. The new feature was first noticed in the development a few months back. But today reports from 9to5Google say that it’s showing up in the YouTube Music app.

So, if you open a playlist in YouTube Music, and tap on the edit button (which is the pencil icon) you will now see a new ‘Collaborate’ button alongside the privacy settings for the playlist. Further reports from 9to5Google say that the button shows up regardless of the privacy settings you choose: public, private, or unlisted. However, after tapping on the button currently, it does not do anything. Instead, you will simply get a toast notification saying “navigation unavailable”.

YouTube Music adds 'Collaborate' button for playlists, not live ...

According to the report, the button is showing up in the latest version of the YouTube Music Android app (v3.69). On the other hand, the same doesn’t show up on Pixel 4. It is also not available on the latest version of the YouTube Music app on iOS devices. It seems like Google is testing the button, or maybe it’s a server-side rollout that will take place over the next few days or in the upcoming weeks. So, if you also don’t see that button or if that is not visible in your app, then don’t freak out soon it will be on a wide rollout for everyone as expected.

This idea of having a collaborative playlist may be a great idea for a lot of users.  Actually it is going to be useful for a lot of people and their friends when they plan something together maybe a get together at home or a  road trip. With collaborative playlists, we don’t need to worry about “who gets to play the music” anymore.
