YouTube Music now lets you save your queue as a new playlist

Those who use YouTube Music can now take advantage of a feature that allows them to turn their current play queue into a whole new playlist.

The feature, which is now available to all YouTube Music users, allows users to ensure their play queue is not lost and save it as a playlist for further listening. easy in the future. Although the change was made on the server side, 9to5Google note that you will need the latest YouTube Music app installed. At the time of writing, this is version 4.61 or later.

If this feature sounds familiar, it originated in Play Music. The YouTube Music version is all about adding songs or albums to your queue. Then, opening Up Next from the Now Playing screen reveals a new “Record” button under the top tabs. (Next to this, you’ll also notice a “Play from” header that notes your current playlist or album.)

From there, you get the standard “Add to Reading List” pop-up window that lets you add to an existing collection (“Recent” or “All”) or create a new one. Hopefully this will also work on single-song derivative radio queues, as YouTube Music sometimes creates great mixes that were previously difficult to record manually.

While most people are probably Apple Music and Spotify users, Google’s YouTube Music is still one of the best music listening apps for iPhone. Google continues to improve the app people use to stream their music and updates like this are very welcome.
