Back in March, we saw Google working on a collaborative playlist for its primary streaming service. Although the functionality is not yet active, YouTube Music now has a “Collaborate” button.
Visit a playlist in the latest version of YouTube Music for Android (3.69) and then tap the Edit / Pencil icon to release a new “Collaboration” button next to the “Privacy” menu. No matter which preferences you set – public, listed or private – today, the new option cannot be launched. Instead, a “Available on Navigation” toast message will appear at the bottom of the screen.
Earlier this year, Strings revealed how you would be given a sharing link. Users will always have the option to turn off collaborations, including “Playlists will no longer contribute,” and “All collaborators will be removed.”
Such capabilities have long been available for playlists on a wide range of YouTube services. Direct integration into YouTube Music mobile applications will be extremely convenient.
This upcoming feature will help the service become more social. It comes just weeks after the announcement of new features left, right and center as the transition away from play music begins:
