What you need to know

  • YouTube Music appears to be getting a new interface on Android tablets.
  • The fresh coat of paint will introduce a tablet-optimized design to the app’s album UI.
  • The new interface resembles the previously seen UI redesign for the app’s playlist.

Google hasn’t shown much love to Android apps on tablets in recent years until recently thanks to Android 12L, which has provided a lot of inspiration for major changes to tablet apps and interfaces in Android 13. YouTube Music now appears to be benefiting from this optimization.

As spotted by a Reddit user (u/MoistTart3258 (opens in new tab)), YouTube Music’s album interface is getting a facelift on Android tablets (via 9to5Google (opens in new tab)). The new UI places the album art in the top center of the screen, and it’s larger than it is currently.
