With YouTube Music now replacing Google Play Music, I’m left with several issues that have not been resolved:
- Google-based Podcast support is not included in YouTube Music and there is no support for Google Podcasts yet. Is Google Podcast service support planned or will YouTube Music add Podcast support similar to that in the former Google Play Music?
- The Explore interface from the YouTube Music app doesn’t seem to be replicated within the Sonos interface, so there does not appear to be any way to Explore (Browse Stations under Google Play Music) by Mood/Activity/etc. and no way to easily access the large variety of curated Radio Stations/Dynamic Playlists/etc. that are available through the Explore pane. The current Sonos-based YouTube Music links under Home are very limited and do not have nearly the range of stuff available on the App.
- Example, I browse the YTMusic App(Android/Windows/Mac/etc.), navigate to Explore, select Moods/Genres, Genres, Jazz and see options such as Big Band Boogie or Women of Jazz. I cannot find ANY way to locate the same within Sonos currently.
- The “Start Radio” feature is available from Artists (Artist Radio), individual Songs or Albums (menu-click on song or album) within the YTMusic app, but NOT within the Sonos YouTube Music browser - only “Artist Radio” is supported.
Are these features available in some other manner or are they planned for addition soon?
