Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – YouTube presents a number of upgrades to its application. The popular streaming platform announced on its blog that there will be dozens of new features and design updates coming.

These changes are scheduled to roll out globally in the coming weeks and will soon be accompanied by an update to the YouTube Kids app.


Of the dozens of updates mentioned, Tom’s Guide reports that they have only discovered 17 features and updates that are present on YouTube. Even so, this update is still noted as a massive improvement from YouTube.

Here are the top three improvements YouTube announced.

1. YouTube new tab

YouTube combined some of its tabs into one new tab. This new tab combines the Library and Account tabs in one tab.

This way, watched videos, playlists, download purchases and settings are all in one place. This enhancement is already available on web browsers, phones, and tablets.

2. Search songs by sound

This upgrade brings AI (artificial intelligence) technology in it. Now, users can search for songs on YouTube on Android devices by playing, singing, or humming them.

AI will work to match the user’s voice with the song they are looking for. This feature is planned to be rolled out in the next few weeks only for Android devices.
