The Video Streaming Platform YouTube is all set to introduce a new feature that allows users to make a custom radio list. This feature has been given the name of the “Create a Radio” feature. As per the reports, this feature is currently in the testing phase. However, the stable version of the feature is going to roll out very soon.
Presently, the music streaming platform lets users customize their music queue in the Now Playing section, based on the genre and mood of the song being played.
In the meantime, YouTube Music has also conducted a poll asking users to vote on whether they want the feature on their app or not. The poll titled “what feature do you want the most on ad-supported”. It is really a helpful poll that let the users describe what features do prefer the most. This poll is live for only six days and includes various options such as better recommendations, sleep timer, background play, and improvements to lyrics.
