Vevo realizes YouTube music videos are its forte, plans to shut down mobile apps and consumer site

Friday, May 25th, 2018

You probably know Vevo from its name being plastered all over music videos on YouTube, and as luck would have it, that's how most people know it. Chances are that you didn't know it had mobile apps and a consumer site, either. For that reason, Vevo is shutting the apps and consumer site down and refocusing on its bread and butter: YouTube.

The official announcement of the decision from Vevo sort of beats around the bush, with the main takeaway from it being, "To be most effective in achieving those goals, we will phase out elements of our owned and operated platforms." Variety clarified this to mean that its apps for Android and iOS (and Windows Phone, but who cares), as well as its consumer-facing website (vevo.com) are shutting down.

Updated YouTube Music now rolling out, will eventually have more Play Music features

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Seemingly out of nowhere, Google unveiled major changes to its YouTube products last week. YouTube Red is being rebranded to 'YouTube Premium,' with a minor price hike ($11.99/month) and promised expanded availability. YouTube Music is turning into a Spotify competitor, complete with an optional $9.99/month ad-free subscription (included in YouTube Premium).

The launch was confusing for just about everyone, mostly because there was a lack of details about certain key points.

Video games are playing an increasingly significant role in popular culture, with the biggest e-sports tournaments offering millions of dollars to the best players and attracting more viewers than ever before.

[Update: Rolling out] YouTube is testing yet another UI modification, this time for collapsed video playback

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Spring cleaning of the YouTube Android app is continuing apace. Already this month we've seen tests for seek bar video previews and an iOS style bottom nav bar. Now, some users are seeing a new interface for collapsing the currently selected video, offering more than just a picture-in-picture window.

Update Notes for YouTube, YouTube Music, Play Store, Play Books, and Google Earth (May 19, 2018)

Saturday, May 19th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

OnePlus 6 emerges from JerryRigEverything’s hands mostly unscathed

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

The OnePlus 6 was finally unveiled about 12 hours ago after quite a bit of shameless self-leaking, and it seems like a pretty solid phone. But how will its glass sandwich design hold up in daily use? JerryRigEverything got his hands on one to find out, and the phone did relatively well.

Zack (not Jerry) starts off with the typical Mohs' pick tests after peeling off the preinstalled screen protector.

YouTube Red is now YouTube Premium, YouTube Music partially replacing Google Play Music

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Google's current services for music and video overlap a bit... to say the least. There's YouTube Red, which gives you ad-free videos and some bonus features. Then you have YouTube Music, which is more oriented towards music videos, and requires a YouTube Red subscription. Google Play Music is purely music-based, and functions as both a streaming service (like Spotify) and a storage location for your vast collection of MP3s.

Rumors have been circulating for months about a new service, believed to be named 'YouTube Remix.' It would replace Google Play Music, and presumably YouTube Music as well.

YouTube adds automatic ‘Music in this video’ credits

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

YouTube videos with identifiable music will now feature credits complete with artist names and song and album titles in their descriptions. The information even includes a link to the artist's official YouTube channel, where applicable. The music is identified automatically by the technology behind YouTube's ContentID.

The feature is working on more than half a billion videos of all kinds—not just music videos—so if you hear music on YouTube, there's a pretty good chance you can see what it is by checking the video's full info.
