Finally… The ability to collaborate on playlists within YouTube Music is now available to everyone. We first heard about this feature a couple of months ago with details filtering through in July. The process to collaborate is really simple:

  1. After creating a playlist, navigate to the edit playlist page
  2. You’ll see the new collaborate button, activate it
  3. You can choose to share the playlist with YouTube Music users or, allow them to add content.

The team behind YouTube Music have been hard at work for some time improving the functionality and ensuring features from Google Play Music are present. This additional feature feels like a final polish of the YouTube Music platform.

What more? Feature parity, and removal of stupid bugs! There are SO many little things scattered around that I’ve lost count, although I always try to use the Feedback option. How about track repeat? Inexplicably, disappears when casting. Worked fine in GPM (sounds trivial, but how many people have a specific play list that want on repeat and played through speakers (eg sleeping music) Recently played is a basket case, not only is it not actually in chronological order, it’s enumerates every single track, so if you’ve been playing a long play list, anything before that is miles down or… Read more »
