YouTube Music tests elevating 'Search' to the bottom bar
Earlier today, YouTube Music has rolled out fast, seamless switching between audio and music videos.
Instead of having a search in the bar app next to the avatar profile, one user has spotted it in the bottom bar. As the second tab, lookup is between Home and Hotlist, with Library rounding out the main parts of YouTube Music. A generic magnifying icon and a "Search" label are leveraged
This elevation makes a lot of sense as YouTube's music's search capability is actually quite powerful. One of the streaming service's best features, lyrics and descriptions often work to find the song you're looking for.
At four tabs, this is probably the optimal number of menu items for the client. One minor annoyance is a changed back behavior after entering and scrolling through search results. Instead of returning to the previous screen, the system back button now exits you from the app.
The new YouTube Music Search experience is currently being tested for A / B testing. It has appeared on one reader's YouTube account across multiple phones.
