YouTube Music’s comments: A low-key but powerful social media tool for music fans
YouTube Music offers a feature that allows music lovers to interact with each other through comments. Users can comment on any song, video, or podcast that they are listening to and join the conversation with other users who have similar tastes. Users can also explore user-generated playlists from the community and see their top listens.
Google could improve this YouTube Music feature by adding the option to comment on albums and playlists, and by letting users follow other users and see their comments in a feed. This would make YouTube Music a unique place to connect with music and people.
The UI was redesigned a few weeks ago to make key actions more accessible. Now, users can swipe up a panel of comments from the main YouTube app with just one tap on Android and iOS devices.
YouTube Music is not just a streaming service, but also a social network for music enthusiasts. It provides a platform for users to express themselves and engage with others through music. It also helps users discover new music and expand their musical horizons. YouTube Music is a place where music and people come together.

Google Calendar for Android adds ‘ Today’ button on all screens
Google Calendar app allows users to organize their schedules as it offers various views to display events and tasks, such as day, week, or month. However, users may sometimes need to check the current date while browsing the calendar but the existing option to return to the current date’s view may disrupt the user’s navigation.
For that, Google is introducing a minor improvement to the Calendar app which is the “Today” button. It will display the current date on every screen. The date will appear between the search icon and the account switcher. It will resemble the application’s icon on Android 13+. This way, you can see the date without leaving the screen you are on.
At the moment, this change is only for phones, not tablets. Tablets will still show “Today” for the button. You need version 2023.36.1.x of Google Calendar for Android to see this change. If you don’t see it, you can restart the app.
