YouTube for iOS nabs an update, brings improved music features

Following its announcement of brand new music features earlier today, YouTube for iOS grabbed an update tonight. The update makes your music browsing experience better with the inclusion of a new dedicated music page that offers up listening recommendations. Also along for the ride is the ability to create an endless YouTube mix based on your favorite song or artist, as well as the option to stream full albums directly from search.

The changes are in-line with YouTube's announcement of a subscription music service called Music Key earlier today. While Music Key will serve up ad-free streaming and background listening to its subscribers, it is only available in the form of a limited invite-only beta at the moment, with a wide release scheduled for 2015. Still, it appears that Google is bringing some much needed improvements to the base YouTube app for everyone ahead of time.

Be sure to check for the update through the App Store link below.
