Google has released a YouTube Music update, adding a “queue” feature and redesigning the fullscreen player interface. The upgrade was brought to our attention via Reddit, though it hasn’t landed on all devices just yet.

According to the information on Reddit, the music streaming app now lets users arrange songs in a custom playback order — a feature long since found on competing services (and Google Play Music). Previously, users could view the list of upcoming tracks, but not edit it.

This upgrade arrives alongside a new full-screen interface that includes bigger controls for easier song navigation. The Home, Library, and Trending pages appear to be unchanged, however.

Take a look at the GIF below from one of the Redditors showing off the latest version of the app.

YouTube Music is a free, ad-based music subscription service available on Android and iOS. It launched in 2015, and comes with an ad-free option available through a subscription to YouTube Red. Google is expected to drop its other music subscription service, Google Play Music, and migrate it into YouTube Music later this year

We’ll keep an eye out for more information on what’s coming up in YouTube Music from Google I/O 2018 next week.
