YouTube Music and YouTube are too interlinked for many individuals’s tastes, and it seems that Google is lastly taking extra steps to decouple the providers. The YouTube Music app has extensively rolled out a (beforehand noticed) possibility that permits you to disguise preferred music movies from YouTube (as observed on Reddit). Sadly, the setting would not apply to preferred songs within the video streaming service, and suggestions and the watch historical past are nonetheless typically bleeding over from one platform to the opposite.
While you head to music.youtube.com or the YTM app in your cellphone and open the settings from the account menu within the high proper nook of the interface, you are greeted by a brand new possibility: Present your preferred music from YouTube. The toggle is turned on by default, so if you don’t need your preferred YouTube music movies to indicate up in YTM, you need to swap it off manually. As soon as that is performed, it’s best to discover that movies you preferred on YouTube now not seem in YTM. That is notably nice for some movies that YouTube erroneously acknowledges as music.
Sadly, there is not a corresponding setting in YouTube itself, so preferred YTM songs nonetheless seem on the video platform. On a associated observe, I am aggravated that tune suggestions are nonetheless bleeding over from YTM to my YouTube homepage. And typically the music historical past may even seem in YouTube, notably once you ask Google Assistant to begin a playlist in your TV or use the YouTube Music Android TV app (which is only a glorified shortcut to the common YouTube software, in order that’s no shock). These are two extra issues the builders ought to sort out to separate the 2 providers.
You’ll be able to obtain the newest YouTube Music launch for Android from the Play Retailer or over at APK Mirror, nevertheless it appears like the brand new possibility is coming as a server-side swap that ought to be out there on any latest model of the app.
