YouTube Music revamped its tablet-friendly Home feed at the beginning of the year and hinted at additional UI improvements, particularly for playlists. On Android, YouTube Music now offers a better settings layout, which is a minor adjustment.

Instead of the fullscreen page seen on phones, visiting the Account menu on Android tablets (and Chromebooks) causes a pop-up (keeping navigation context).

Now, Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, and other first-party Android apps all have a two-column UI, as do Settings. The list of what is offered stays on the left while the actual controls display on the right.

Instead of receiving a single long list of toggles and menus, preferences are now organized according to a theme: Overview, Data saving, Playback, Downloads and storage, Notifications, Location and privacy information, Recommendations, Paid memberships, and About YouTube Music. The preferences menu is opened when you use the settings shortcut on the Library page.

This is a lot better strategy because YouTube Music’s settings have been cumbersome for a while as more features have been added. Though with different groups, YouTube Music offers a similar list format for iPhone and iPad today that we aren’t seeing on Android phones. As a result, it might also be coming to smaller Android screens.
