There’s a feature on the desktop version of YouTube that’s much appreciated by music lovers. Called YouTube Mix, the feature suggests music videos from musicians. Its essentially an auto-generated playlist of an artist’s most popular music videos on YouTube. The feature hasn’t been available on the official Android app for quite some time but that has changed now. YouTube Mix has been enabled for the official Android application.

However it looks like YouTube Mix isn’t working for every artist. Actually, it appears to be working primarily for Vevo artists with music videos being pulled in from the popular music channel. Mix also pulls in videos from other accounts as well. The Mix collage is displayed at the top of search results after users search for an artist.

Music selections will automatically play when users choose the Mix function. Videos, selected randomly, play back to back so there’s no interruption in music. Controls for fast forward/reverse and skipping tracks are available.

Since this is a server side change, an update for the YouTube application is not required. It should work straightaway on the official YouTube app for Android. The feature is ready for Chromecast as well, so you can enjoy uninterrupted music videos on a HDTV as well.
