YouTube for Android now auto-generates playlists of your favorite artists


Making YouTube playlists can be a real pain, especially if you just want to veg out listening to music after a long day at work. If you're using an Android phone or tablet, though, you can now just type in an artist's name and voilà -- YouTube will auto-generate a playlist with the artist's most popular videos. The results, however, are mostly Vevo clips, and (sadly) it might not work for lesser-known artists. According to Android Police, this feature (called YouTube Mix) recently made its way to Android after popping up for desktops first in 2013. The lack of fanfare suggests it's just something Google's been experimenting with, so we wouldn't be surprised if this is the first time you've heard of it. Since Mountain View hasn't officially announced anything, we can't say whether all Android users can access YouTube Mix -- but it's the weekend anyway, so have fun trying it out.
