YouTube, the video streaming platform keeps coming up with updates to make it easier for viewers, users, and creators. Last December, YouTube introduced the 2021 Recap, a new experience that provided our dedicated community of music lovers with their personalized listening stats spanning the entire year. After getting positive feedback loud and clear, they decided to take it to the next level.
According to YouTube’s official blog, “We’re excited to announce the launch of Spring Recap, an exploration of your top artists, songs, albums, and playlists over the last season. Similar to the 2021 Recap, you’ll find your personalized content on the Spring Recap landing page on the YouTube Music app along with your personalized Spring Recap playlist. Want to tell your friends about your favorite songs of the Spring? Easily share your Spring Recap playlist and stats by simply tapping the arrow at the bottom of your stats card.”
This isn’t a one-time thing! Moving forward, we’ll be providing listeners with a personalized experience for each season along with our annual Recap to reflect your year in music. You can also expect to see more new stats and features further showcasing your unique tastes later this year. In the meantime, check out your latest musical era by heading over to YouTube Music and revisiting the tunes that soundtracked your Spring.
YouTube is also introducing a new feature named “corrections” that will let creators easily add more obvious corrections. After a video has been uploaded, creators can add corrections that will appear as infocards in the top right-hand corner of a video at the relevant timestamp (but only, it seems, for the first correction in any given video). Viewers can then click on the card to expand the correction notes in the video’s description.
