Great news for YouTube Music fans who love listening to the latest music, as the music service is getting an update that adds an important new feature. The newly added “Released” playlist of the hottest 50 songs is something that Apple Music and Spotify have offered for quite a while now.

Spotted by 9to5google, the information was confirmed by YouTube Music, so if you visit the Released link, you find a list of “the hottest 50 songs this week, served up fresh to you every Friday.”

If you open YouTube Music, you’ll notice the Released playlist is highlighted in the Home feed, which makes it easier to access. Of course, you can continue to use playlists for the top 100 songs and music videos from YouTube Charts if 50 of the hottest songs are not enough for you.

And, just like Apple Music and Spotify, the list is refreshed every Friday, so you’ll have access to new songs every week. You can even add the playlist to your library and download it for offline playback if you don’t have time.

YouTube Music’s Released playlist is a little nifty feature directly aimed at audiophiles who want to be up to date with the latest trends in the music industry. But it’s also meant to bring the service on the same level as the competition.

Apple is reportedly in talks to let Siri play Spotify tracks

industry-insider---spotify

As we all know that later days if we want to use Siri to control Spotify tracks we need to transfer Spotify playlist to Apple music or do some other settings, now maybe you can directly use Siri to control Spotify directly.

You wouldn’t think that Apple and Spotify’s relationship would be thawing out anytime soon, given that Spotify has lodged an antitrust complaintagainst its streaming rival in the EU. However, the two companies are reportedly discussing a plan to let iPhone users play Spotify songs, playlists and albums using Siri voice commands, according to The Information.

When it unveiled iOS 13, Apple opened up the possibility of Siri working with rival music services via new SiriKit updates. If Apple and Spotify can work something out, you’d be able to play Spotify tunes using Siri from an iPhone without the need to open the app. However, Apple Music would still be the default music service for Siri on Apple devices, according to The Information‘s sources.

As part of its antitrust complaint, Spotify put up a website listing the reasons it feels Apple isn’t behaving competitively. Its main gripe is the 15 to 30 percent fee Apple takes on Spotify’s subscription service from the App Store. It feels that by acting as a gatekeeper to services like Spotify, while also offering its own app, Apple is competing unfairly.

Spotify originally said that “Apple won’t allow us to be on HomePod and they definitely won’t let us connect with Siri to play your jams.” However, as The Information notes, it changed the wording, which now reads: “Only recently, Apple announced that it will let us connect with Siri to play your jams…but fails to mention our name (‘I want to play [X] on Spotify’) and your HomePod will default to Apple Music.”

Google’s Assistant and Amazon Alexa both work with Spotify, but Siri does not. Apple has used that fact to push its own Apple Music service, which has tight integration with Siri, HomePod and Apple TV (As of recent counts, Apple Music has over 60 million paid subscribers, while Spotify has north of 100 million premium users.) In any case, the news — which should be taken with a grain of salt — isn’t likely to derail Spotify’s anti-competition suit in the EU.

Move the playlist from Apple Music to Spotify, yes you can

Some days earlier, jeffmclane187 asked for help:

“Gave Apple Music a try. Made a few nice playlists. But the interface was driving me mad, so I’m back to Spotify (with open arms?). Is there an easy way to import my recent playlists into Spotify playlists? Googling this seems to be just ideas on how to do the opposite. Maybe Spotify should have an easy import tool to go along with a “Come back to me” ad campaign?!?”

Drake’s surprise new ‘Care Package’ album collects his best one-off releases

All those one-off tracks Drake has fired off in between album releases over the course of his career? They now have an official home, thanks to his new release “Care Package,” which collects the many loosies the 32-year-old rapper has dropped in the past 10-plus years.

The album brings many of these songs to streaming services for the first time, featuring fan-favorite deep cuts including 2011’s “Club Paradise” and “Girls Love Beyonce” and “5am in Toronto,” both from 2013, as well as amusingly dated-sounding tracks like “Jodeci Freestyle” and “Draft Day.”

“Care Package” is Drake first solo compilation album, and his first full-length release since 2018’s “Scorpion.” Over on Instagram, the rapper has been busy promoting his other efforts, including “Euphoria,” the HBO series on which he has a producer credit, as well as his forthcoming Toronto-based OVO Fest and other recording sessions for yet-to-be-announced new music.
