Google-owned YouTube’s music streaming service, Youtube Music has introduced a new ‘Energise’ mood filter for personalized playlists consisting of tracks from various genres and artists. 

This is the fifth filter that adds to the already present Workout, Focus, Relax, and Commute modes. These filters can be accessed from the Activity Bar on the top of the YouTube Music app homepage and it will get updated over time.

The ‘Energise’ mood filter on YouTube Music has a ‘Mixed for you’ carousel with four playlists including Energy Supermix, Energy Mix 1, Energy Mix 2, and Energy Mix 3. Other playlist carousels include Hip-Hop energy, Dance club beats, Pop bangers, Rock & punk anthems, Indie & Alt anthems, Metal mosh pit, among others. 

Each playlist has a number of songs from various artists. The users can either listen to songs from their favorite artists or explore new ones. The “Energise” filter is available on both Android and iOS.

Last year, YouTube Music added the Activity Bar that offers customized and personalized playlists on the Home tab under various moods. These playlists are curated on the basis of artists and genres that a user listens to. 

Apart from this, YouTube Music also has recommendations offering music by “Similar Artists” that the user listens to. Furthermore, one can also get music from various communities and locations. There are also ‘Mixed For You’ playlists under which users get ‘New Release Mix’ and ‘My Supermix’. 

Earlier this year, Google’s video and music-streaming platform announced that it has signed up more than 50 million paid subscribers, which includes people paying for YouTube Music, YouTube Premium customers who get music as part of their subscription, as well as customers on a free trial.
