You can now hide liked YouTube videos in YouTube Music

YouTube Music and YouTube are interlinked for many people’s choices and it looks like Google is taking some serious steps to decouple the services. YouTube Music app has become an option that allows you to hide the liked music video from YouTube. This feature is not applied tot he liked sings in the video streaming service. Recommendations as well as watch history sometimes shifts from one platform to another.

When you will go to or the YouTube Music app on your phone and then open the settings from account menu in the top right corner of the interface. You will be greeted by a new option ‘Show your like music from YouTube’. The toggle is turned on by default so that if you dont need your liked YouTube music videos to show up in YTM, you have to switch off manually. Once it is done you will notice that videos you liked on YouTube no longer appear in YouTube Music. It is great for some videos that YouTube erroneously recognizes as music.

There are no corresponding setting in YouTube by itself so the liked YouTube Music songs still appear on the video platform. Though the song recommendations are still popping up from YouTube Music to YouTube homepage. Sometimes the music history will appear in YouTube, especially when you ask Google Assistant to start a playlist on your TV or use YouTube Music Android TV app. These are the two issues the developers should tackle to separate the two services.
