Little by little, YouTube Music has brought many useful features from the now non-functional Play Music service. And this trend continues as YouTube Music takes over another Play Music feature that makes it easier to store songs you’ve put in Queue.

As noted by 9to5Google, YouTube Music is introducing a new "save" button in the app that allows you to save a queue as a playlist. When you play an album or playlist, the "Next" tab appears in the YouTube Music Now Playing screen in the lower-left corner, revealing a list of upcoming songs. A new save button appears on the Next Up tab and allows users to save an entire row of songs as a playlist with a few taps.

Touching the Save button opens the Add to Playlist dialog, which allows you to save a row to one of the existing playlists or create a new one. This feature should also work on radio lines.

The new save button on the Next tab has not started to expand globally but has only just begun to reach some users. This is most likely a server-side introduction because it was not available on the latest version of YouTube Music.

YouTube Music has recently received a new widget that allows you to access playback controls and recently played songs directly from the home screen. The app has also introduced a new "Energize," a better mood filter that will help you increase energy when you have a long day or feel unmotivated. Other notable features that YouTube Music has gained in recent months include free background play in selected regions, community-generated playlists, the Material You widget, and more.
