YouTube Music starts rolling out multi-select in the web app
A big problem with Google’s current streaming service for some is the lack of basic functionality for music apps. Multi-select in List Views was one of those absences, but now YouTube Music is rolling out the feature.
Some users notice that tracks in music.youtube.com list views now show a checkbox to the right (after thumbs up/down and overflow menu). This presumably appears when hovering over a song and remains visible after at least one selection.
YouTube Music will show a box at the bottom of your screen with options to add to playlist or queue. There is also another overflow menu here.
So far, multi-select is only rolling out to a handful of users on the web. It remains to be seen if the capability also comes to Android and iOS mobile apps, which would perhaps require more development effort than the web client.
Still, it’s progress that its functionality exists anywhere, and the addition gives people at least one place to perform bulk actions on their library. A wider multi-select launch is expected to arrive sooner rather than later on YouTube Music.
