Youtube launches an Music Discovery Project

Everyone now uses Youtube to find Music videos of its favorite artist or band, and basically listen to music from there so it’s kind of logical that Youtube now creates its own music playlist maker.
When you connect to their new site there is a search box on top of which says, “Find>Mix>Watch,” and once you enter a name, you hit the “Disco” button to find music.
You can enter any music group or artist, and a playlist pops up, along with a thumbnail video and a description of the band. You can find related artists, create a mixtape, and save playlists. As you are listening to music and watching videos, it is easy to add and delete songs.
Playlists are saved to your regular YouTube playlists page, from where you can share them via email.
Isn’t that great? Should Spotify have fears?
