Recognizing its popularity among music- and music video-seeking consumers, YouTube on Thursday debuted a revamped music page. It's "part of a redesign that started with our shows and movies pages," according the video-sharing site, as it "showcases the most viewed music videos, special promotions, curated playlists, unsigned talent and gives you the ability to create on-the-fly mixes."
And for good reason, notes The Next Web
. "When you ask nearly anyone where they go on the Internet to listen to music, an overwhelming majority will say YouTube." YouTube has also launched new functions for finding new music, listening to playlists, and soon plans to let users find local music listings with an "Events Near You" service. Meanwhile, mousing over one of the sections along the top will give users an instant peek at the playlist for that section. Writes The Next Web, "It's a great way to see if one of the sections interests you, or if you'd rather pass."
