The activity bar on the Home tab on YouTube Music will give users easy access to music for the following featured activities: Workout, Focus, Relax, and Commute. Tapping on the workout icon will directly take you to a dedicated personalised homepage that will have playlists suited for your workout, as per YouTube. There will be up to four new personalised Workout Mixes here.

“We're introducing a suite of new personalized playlists and a way to navigate the YouTube Music homepage, to ensure every listener can easily enjoy the music that speaks to them,” wrote YouTube Music product manager Nathan Lasche in a blog post.

The set of seven personalised playlists being rolled out by YouTube Music is a feature similar to Spotify's Daily Mixes. When we checked out the new My Mix playlists, there were fifty songs in each playlist, based on our past listening habits.

My Supermix playlist (formerly Your Mix) is also available. It will combine music across moods and genres. YouTube Music also has New Release Mix, Your Like auto playlist, and Discover Mix playlist.

With Google Play Music shutting down, YouTube Music has been receiving a slew of updates in the past few months. Google is encouraging users to shift to YouTube Music and has introduced features such as letting users cast their songs, play personalised playlists through Google Assistant, and more.
