YouTube Launches New Version of Music Page
YouTube has launched a revamped version of its Music page, following in the footsteps of its shows and movies pages. The new page showcases the most viewed music videos, as well as special promotions, curated playlists, and unsigned talent.
Users can also create their on mixes. "For example, in the mood for electronic beats? Just scroll down to that genre and click ‘play’ for an instant playlist," says YouTube Music Manager Michele Flannery.
The page will soon include an "events near you" section that will show live music in your area, according to the company.
The new music section could help Google as it builds its rumored "Google Me" social network. Soon all YouTube users will have to have their accounts connected to Google accounts after all.
