Google-owned music streaming platform YouTube Music is likely testing suggestion chips to filter what pops up.
According to 9To5Google, just below the bar showing what radio users are playing from is a carousel of filters they can tap to customize with next plays in Up next.
“All” is the default and joined by “Familiar”, “Recommendation” and “Instrumental”.
According to a user on Reddit, filter pills vary by song and they only mention it for radio generated queues.
This should allow users to find more songs to listen to without having to browse the home feed.
According to the report, this can be ideal when a user’s current radio queue is great, but they. want more variety.
All in all, it keeps people in the Now Playing UI, which is the fastest way to start another song. This view gets slightly busier and cluttered, but it’s still fairly straightforward, according to the report.
At the moment, there is only one report on YouTube Music’s new ability to filter radio queues, the report mentions.
