YouTube Music now offers YouTube Charts: Keep up with the hottest songs and music videos in the world

At YouTube Music, we are constantly striving to give fans more ways to explore the world of music. Today, we are making the previously announced YouTube Charts available in YouTube Music as playlists so fans in our 29 launched markets can effortlessly explore the hottest songs and videos both globally and locally.

Looking to check out the top most-played songs this week on YouTube, the most-viewed music videos, or see what’s trending? We’ve got you covered! Fans can now easily access YouTube Charts as playlists that will appear on users’ home screens or by search. It’s ALL here and easy to find, watch and listen to what’s popular, rising and trending both locally and globally — all within YouTube Music.

Every country  all 29 markets  will get five charts playlists: three specific to their country and two global lists. Fans can also add their favorite charts to their library so they can stay up-to-date on what’s trending on the platform.

YouTube Charts are the go-to destination to see what music is hot on YouTube and now include the following within YouTube Music:

Top 100 Songs: The most played songs on YouTube (global and local charts available)

The Top Songs chart combines the number of views of a song on YouTube (including the official music video, official song used in user-generated content and lyric videos). The Top Songs chart is updated weekly on Sunday at 12 p.m. PST. Each country will get both a global and country-specific version of this chart. This week, the U.S. list is topped by “thank u, next,” followed by Travis Scott’s “SICKO MODE (feat Drake)” and Halsey’s “Without Me.”

Top 100 Music Videos: The most viewed music videos (global and local charts available)

The Top Music Videos chart goes beyond the song and gives fans the chance to dive into the most viewed official music videos on the platform. Top Videos is updated weekly on Sunday at 12 p.m. PST. Each country will get both a global and country-specific version of this chart. This week, the U.S. list is topped by the same two tracks as the songs list, with Nicki Minaj at #3 with “Good Form ft. Lil Wayne.”

Top 20 Trending (local chart)

The new Trending chart is updated multiple times a day to provide a unique, real-time view of the hottest new music fans are enjoying in a specific country. The Trending chart is YouTube’s first dedicated external signal of the most-viewed new music on the platform, providing an instant snapshot of what is driving music culture. Ariana Grande completes her clean sweep in the U.S. this week, with XXXTENTACION’s “Guardian angel” and Kodak Black’s “Calling My Spirit” rounding out the top 3.

The charts, currently topped globally by Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next,” are the most accurate reflection of what’s happening in music culture and based purely on the number of views from more than 1 billion global music fans on YouTube each month. Full details about how YouTube charts are calculated can be found here.

Spotify users can now share songs and playlists through Facebook Messenger directly

Spotify_Facebook_Messenger

For those of you who communicate using Facebook Messenger and are subscribed to the music streaming service Spotify, you can now share favorite songs and playlists seamlessly.

Facebook has been improving its Messenger application over recent months by including new functionality. Some of which include the ability to pay through the app and call an Uber car when on the go. Now you’ll be able to share songs and playlists from your Spotify account to your friends and family through Facebook Messenger directly. The capability has already been implemented into Facebook’s Messenger application and requires no update. Both Android and iOS apps include the new feature.

Spotify already has a way of its own to share music with others using Email, SMS, and WhatsApp. However, being able to share from the Facebook Messenger application without having to go into Spotify is a big plus. For Facebook this will offer more monetization opportunities and for Spotify it means easier sharing than competing music streaming services. Hopefully for Spotify users will notice the capability and consider it when choosing a music streaming service to use.
