Google Assistant on Android now plays personal playlists from Youtube Music

Previously, Google Assistant did not support YouTube Music. Now it plays users’ personal playlists.

STRONG POINTS

  • Google Assistant for Android now supports YouTube Music.
  • Users have to command Google Assistant to play a playlist without even specifying YouTube Music, especially if it’s the default.
  • Google Play Music will disappear globally this month.

Google Play Music is expected to close its store globally this month. Months ago, Google sounded the alarm to make Youtube Music the default replacement by introducing handy transfer options. Now Google Assistant on Android supports Youtube Music playlists.

These can be playlists created by users over the months or playlists that they particularly like. All they have to do is command Google Assistant to play a playlist without even specifying YouTube Music, especially if it’s the default.

A 9to5 Google report notes that to start a personal playlist in YouTube Music, users can say “Hey Google, play playlist X” or “Ok Google, play X.” Users can also ask Google Assistant to play their likes in the same way. .

It seems like a decent attempt by Google to make the new Youtube Music a go-to place for music lovers who have personally curated YouTube Music playlists. Some suggestions on Reddit’s unofficial YouTube Music subreddit, however, indicate that Google Assistant plays YouTube music from the connected YouTube account.

Users noted that it was annoying because anyone with a brand account or customers will need to log in to other accounts to effectively switch the YouTube Music account. To avoid confusion, it is suggested that the YouTube Music account be separated from the connected YouTube account.

It’s unclear if this feature is a Google test or here to stay. Google is making a lot of changes to direct users from Google Play Music to YouTube Music. Google Play Music that goes beyond September will be converted to Play Store credits. Google Play Music has already disappeared for some users on the Windows operating system, according to a report from Android Headlines.

Previously, YouTube Music was not supported by Google Assistant. This means that users cannot ask Google Assistant to play music from their Youtube Music playlists. The feature is not region specific and is now available internationally.
