Until now, only premium subscribers were able to do this. You can request the personal playlists by name and YouTube Music will identify and play the correct one. Google looks to replace Google Play Music with YouTube Music this month, so these timely updates could enhance the latter's features. YouTube Music will let free users cast uploaded content to smart speakers, displays, and more compatible devices, thereby giving them more autonomy over their music.
