YouTube Music has provided a Precise Location feature to provide song recommendations according to the user's location point, YouTube Music will provide song recommendations that match the atmosphere of the location the user is going to. However, this service will be stopped immediately next month, Saturday (27/08).
Google has indeed developed a lot of technology for the YouTube Music service, this service has been used by millions of users from all over the world to listen to songs digitally. Now, YouTube Music has also been using the Precise Location feature for quite a while for their service.
Unfortunately, this feature will be discontinued in September. Later, YouTube Music will stop location tracking, data storage through Google services, and give users access to be able to manage location tracking accessed by YouTube Music.
Previously, the service would use location access to provide recommendations around songs that were suitable to play. For example, when you go to the fitness center, YouTube Music will access your location and provide a list of songs in the form of songs that match the atmosphere of the fitness center, let's call it like the EDM genre.
With the removal of this service, YouTube Music provides another option to be able to enjoy songs according to your location point. Previously, YouTube Music also had song features according to the user's genre and location, such as a list of songs for Workout, Relax, Commute, to Focus that can be selected according to taste.
In any case, removing the Precise Location feature won't change most of the songs you like on YouTube Music. The platform already stores the search data of the songs you are browsing, so it will still provide a list of song recommendations that suit the user's taste.
In addition, YouTube Music will continue to expand their features going forward. Later, YouTube Music will provide song recommendations according to the type of weather in your city, for example when the weather conditions are in the rainy season, YouTube Music will provide a list of song recommendations that match the atmosphere.
