One of the best music streaming apps for iPhone and other platforms, Google's YouTube Music dukes it out with Apple Music and Spotify for spots on Home Screens. As part of that, Google says that the new Spring Recap "isn't a one time thing." Subscribers should expect more of these seasonal recaps moving forward.

Other apps and streaming services offer recaps of the most popular music from the last year, but this seasonal approach is an interesting one — and one that does add new value for YouTube Music subscribers. It'll also mean that music fans can see how their tastes change as the seasons evolve, or whether they remain the same throughout.
