The introduction of YouTube Music as an eventual replacement for Google Play Music hasn’t been the smoothest in the world, with many features missing from the service. Google is attempting to bring feature parity over time, and the latest is the introduction of Top Charts.
From today, you’ll be able to see YouTube Charts available in YouTube Music as playlists. There’s five playlists being added Top Songs, showing the most played songs on YouTube, Top Videos, showing the most viewed music videos, and Top Trending. Google is offering both local and global playlists for the Top Songs and Top Videos categories, letting you see what’s happening in your area and around the world.
Australians can get access to YouTube Music for AU$11.99/month or go all in on YouTube with the YouTube Premium service which includes YouTube Music as well as ad-free videos on the platform for AU$14.99 per month.
If you’re a music fan you’ll probably watching the transition from Google Play Music to YouTube Music with interest and while there’s a long way to go, this is at least progress.
