YouTube Music adds a splash of background color on Android and iOS

Since its inception in 2015 (and the 2018 relaunch), YouTube Music has solely ever provided a darkish theme, however the Android and iOS apps are actually including a splash of colour to liven issues up.

This splash seems on the prime of the cell apps (together with the system standing bar) and seems behind the app bar (YouTube Music brand, Solid button, search, and your profile avatar). It extends right down to the Exercise, Energize, Calm down, Commute, and Focus carousel — with the tablet containers getting significantly emphasised, in addition to components (i.e., the highest half) of that first shelf suggestion.

It’s a blurred multi-color background that’s not overly vibrant and suits in with the darkish YouTube Music design/theme. These hues notably replace each time you refresh the Dwelling feed (or open the app after a while away). This theming disappears and fades to black as you scroll via Dwelling, whereas there’s no colourful background within the Discover or Library tabs.

Previously, Google has proven background photographs when customers are on the default Dwelling tab. Nonetheless pictures was primarily used, which is what the moods carousel does at present. In our expertise, this was usually the case if you happen to have been on the free plan, however didn’t actually happen for paying subscribers. Different occasions, the quilt picture was associated to the primary shelf.

That’s not the case at present as YouTube Music is simply utilizing generic colours to brighten up the app. It’s a small tweak, however it does make cell purchasers more energizing and fewer static.

We first encountered the colourful background this afternoon on YouTube Music (model 5.04.51) for Android and iOS. Shut the streaming app and/or refresh the Dwelling feed to verify for this new look. We’re not seeing this server-side change on the internet, however it’s reside on iPad and Android tablets. On giant screens, colours are significantly pronounced and brighten up the app a fantastic deal.

In the meantime, YouTube Music in latest days has been tweaking what number of objects seem within the Pay attention once more grid. Over the weekend, we encountered 20 songs/albums/playlists/artists, however it’s been hovering round 10 (for me in any case) in latest days.
