YouTube Music is updating itself with new features for each operating system. The company finally launched a redesign of its Now Playing screen for iPad. The music streaming platform released the Now Playing redesign in June of 2020 for Android and iPhone over a year later. Here are the details about the YouTube Music redesign for iPad.
YouTube Music Now Playing UI comes for iPad
YouTube Music is one of the best music streaming platform alternatives to Spotify. The company is trying to be at the top with new features and have more subscribers. For example, there are rumors that YouTube Music could get a sleep timer. Let’s check the YouTube Music redesign for iPad.
YouTube Music’s song/video switcher is still at the top, with Cast next. However, with the redesign, you can now access the overflow menu from the top-right corner. The revamp with cover art is no longer going edge-to-edge as there is now a border.
You can now swipe up or tap for the Up Next queue, while Lyrics and Related have a place at the bottom row. This design offers a great browsing experience on large screens for users. While you can swipe on the cover art to move through songs on Android, you cannot swipe the cover art to change the songs.
When you use YouTube Music in portrait mode, this UI lets you see the cover art better. You can access play/pause and the next track when Now Playing is placed. To get rid of the current queue, you need to swipe down. However, a bug occurs when rotating from portrait results in a fullscreen view. You can now experience the new YouTube Music redesign for iPad.
