Say what you want about the Spotify vs YouTube Music chicken debate, but Google’s product may have one step ahead in this. Just this week, the streaming giant rolled out an update with a lot of changes, including a new AI-generated playlist artwork feature.

The feature is currently available for English language users in the US, but YouTube plans to expand it to other regions and languages in the future.

To use the feature, you can simply the pencil icon on your playlist to edit it. Then, clck on the image of the playlist and then scroll down to select from a variety of visual themes, colors, and image subjects.

Once they have made their selections, the AI will generate a cohesive visual that represents the unique mood and style of their playlist. Not happy? Clikc Randomize to keep the dice rolling. 

This isn’t the only AI-centered feature that’s been rolling out in a music streaming app. Not too long ago, Spotify has just expanded its AI DJ curator. It’s not available in 50 countries and we can expect it rolling out to more in the future. 

Besides, YouTube also announced a new feature that lets you find songs by humming for more than 3 seconds. It sounds more advanced than Shazam or Google Assistant, and it’s been tested in a closed rollout for several Android devices.
