Google, in the past couple of months, has rolled out major upgrades to its YouTube Music app. Right from phasing out Google Play Music to tweaking in-app branding on Android and iOS, the company has made major changes to its music streaming service. Now, the company is planning to roll out another major update to the YouTube Music app.

YouTube Music has a feature called Your Mixtape that offers endless personalised music radio station.

Now, a report by 9To5 Google says that Google is changing the way this feature functions. The company is modifying this feature. It is now called Your Mix and some users are seeing it under the Your Mixed Tape section of the app, which also features the Discover and New Releases section of the app. This new tab creates a fresh list of songs that includes a mix new songs and previous listens when users tap on it. What's good about this feature is that this feature creates a fresh list every time users tap on it.

One of the major changes to this section is that it is now a playlist instead of being a radio station. Furthermore, the name ‘Your Mix' now appears on the artwork of the section and it now features a total of 100 songs. “This personalized mix features a blend of favorites and new songs you're sure to love. Updated daily,” the updated description says.

One downside to this update, the publication notes is that it cannot be created on-demand. Additionally, the app plays music in the same order every time unless they tap on the Shuffle button each time. The catch is that this change is visible to some YouTube Music users. It should be available to other users across the globe soon.
