YouTube Music has made some updates to improve user experience.

They have redesigned the mini player in their app, making it more user-friendly.

One notable change is the addition of a permanent Cast button, which makes it easier to cast music to Chromecast-enabled devices.

They have also introduced new gestures for track navigation.

Redesigned Mini Player

According to a report by 9to5Google, the mini player in the YouTube Music app has undergone a notable change.

Previously, users used the mini player to skip tracks and cast songs to Chromecast-enabled devices.

However, Google's recent update has made a significant transformation.

They have replaced the Next track button with a permanent Cast button, resulting in the mini player displaying only the Cast button and the Play/Pause button.

This update aims to create a cleaner appearance for the entire app by removing the Cast button from the top right corner.

YouTube Music has introduced a new gesture-based feature for track navigation in their recent update.

With the removal of the Next track button, users can now simply swipe left or right within the app to move to the next track or preview previous tracks.

This intuitive gesture-based navigation enhances the user experience by providing a more interactive and engaging way to navigate through tracks, eliminating the need for an extra button.

According to reports, Google has begun a global rollout of the updated YouTube Music app.

Users around the world can expect to receive the update in the near future.

While some users have already been experiencing these changes for nearly a month, the update is now being made available to a wider audience.
