Under the Google umbrella, YouTube Music is a well-known player in the music streaming space that has fought tenaciously for market share against industry heavyweights like Spotify and Apple Music.

By providing features similar to its competitors, YouTube Music has managed to build a devoted user base despite fierce competition—it may have even surpassed Apple Music in terms of subscribers.

To enhance the user experience even more, the platform has released a new feature that helps users keep up to date with the newest music that their favorite artists have to offer.

YouTube Music’s “Activity” keeps you posted with new releases

Much to the delight of music lovers who want to be updated about the newest releases, YouTube Music has added a notification bell icon next to the search bar in the main menu interface. This new feature—which was first noticed by alert Reddit users and later verified by 9to5Google—allows users to easily keep track of new releases from artists they follow.

Pressing the notification bell icon takes users to an “Activity” feed that features the most recent releases arranged chronologically and conveniently labeled “This Week” and “Earlier.” This feature fixes an earlier bug that prevented access to dismissed notifications about new music.

Though it may not have received the same attention as its rivals, Google is actively adding unique features to YouTube Music. One such upcoming feature is the ability to recognize songs by humming, which is similar to a feature that has been present on Google Search for a long time. The user base of YouTube Music seems ready to welcome this smooth integration.

However, YouTube Music continues to struggle with some areas that require improvement, giving rivals a competitive advantage. For example, YouTube Music has been working to catch up to Spotify’s real-time lyrics display during playback. Although a collaboration with Musixmatch has been formed to provide lyrics, there have been some issues with the implementation.

The streaming platform owned by Google needs to be improved constantly, as these current shortcomings highlight. YouTube Music has the potential to become a more competitive player in the crowded music streaming market by taking proactive measures to rectify these shortcomings and introducing planned features. However, considering Google’s diverse range of initiatives, it might take some time for these improvements to materialize.

In the coming days, users can expect a more comprehensive and seamless music discovery experience from YouTube Music as it works to strengthen its position in the competitive music streaming market.
