YouTube Music for Android gets a redesigned comments section

Last updated: April 3rd, 2024 at 14:44 UTC+02:00

In September 2023, Google added a comments section to YouTube Music. It hasn’t even been a year since then and the company is now updating the comments section in the YouTube Music app for Android and iOS with a new design (via 9To5Google).

Up until now, when you clicked on the comments button on the Now Playing screen, the app used to bring up a panel showing the comments section over the playback screen, which used to obstruct the view of the album art, track information, and playback controls.

Now when you click on the comments section button on the Now Playing screen, the app still brings up a panel showing the comments section but it also shrinks the playback screen into a mini-player and displays it above the comments section. This mini-player shows the song’s name and artist and has play/pause and cast buttons. With the new design, you can take a look at the track information and access basic playback controls even when you are interacting with the comments section, which is very convenient.

Reportedly, Google is rolling out the latest change on Android only on smartphones, not tablets. We haven’t received it on our Galaxy S23 or Galaxy S24+ in India. We are assuming that the company is offering the redesign with an update to the app. So, keep checking for an update to YouTube Music on the Play Store to get it.
