Calif. – Google’s (NASD: GOOG) YouTube has
begun testing a new music discovery and playlist creation tool, NewTeeVee
reports. A user enters an artist or song title, and the tool returns a list of
music videos that are related to the user’s selection in the form of a playlist
— which users may then delete and add to as desired. NewTeeVee reports that,
at least at launch, the YouTube Music Discovery Project and Playlist Creation
Tool is likely to disappoint users of services like Pandora or Last.fm as
lacking in diversity of content.
