YouTube Promotes Top Tracks In Music Search

youtube-new-logoYouTube is a wildly popular website where you can just spend hours and hours in this time sink, watching one cat video to another and before you know it, it is time to go to work again the next morning. Of course, it is also the place where many of us go to in order to get our favorite music video fix. Well, it seems that Google, YouTube’s owner, is revamping its existing website (user interface included) to go up against the likes of Spotify and Rdio among other music streaming companies, where a new segment will appear on the right side of the page as you perform a search on a popular and recognized artist.

The default setting would display a bunch of the artist’s most popular tracks alongside links to the corresponding videos on YouTube. Located right at the top would be a thumbnail image, where it will offer a shortcut to a custom playlist so that you will be able to enjoy those tunes one right after the other. It seems that Google is going to maximize its repository of YouTube videos, including the unofficial versions from fans.

Apart from that, the latest music section would also have a place for related artists, in addition to a tab that will be able to switch top tracks in place of a list of their most recently released albums.
