YouTube Music will stop snooping on your location unnecessarily

Determining the exact location of a mobile phone and its owner can be very useful in some situations, but sometimes this practice seems quite unnecessary. The YouTube Music development team has recently been considering whether it really needs this data anymore. Google announced that by the music version of YouTube precise location will not be required at all from September 26even though it was linked to recommending specific playlists.

Energetic music in the gym, relaxing songs for relaxing at home or songs for concentration at work. These and other recommendations were made by the YouTube Music app based on the exact location of the mobile device. “During the past year, we they found new ways to get the right music to you. For example, music for exercise, focus, and other activities can now be found within the activity bar at the top of the Home app. We think it’s a better approach to help you tone your day,” explains Google’s changes on the support pages.

As a result of this decision, the application will continue to use only the determination of the approximate location, which will lead, for example, to recommending playlists based on the country or the current weather in the city. It is said that Google will delete the data collected so far about the exact location from the YouTube servers. However, the change will not affect the entries in the general location history.
