YouTube Music improves the way users interact with their music through a new redesign.

Spotted by 9to5Google, YouTube Music has started rolling out a redesign update for its Now Playing screen. The update appears to appear on Android devices running YouTube Music version 5.32. This update, according to 9to5’s findings, has not yet shown the redesign on iOS devices.

There are two notable feature changes with this new redesign, and that starts with the Now Playing screen letting you know where your music is coming from. At the top of the screen is a small string of text that lets users know if their music is playing from a playlist, radio station, queue, likes, or an artist’s page.

The next change is that YouTube Music’s Now Playing redesign has removed the “dislike” button on the left side of a song’s title. Now the track title is positioned a bit more to the left and only has the like button on the right.
