YouTube Music's daily mixes now have a new way to get you pumped up

The music streaming app has picked up 'Energize' mood in its activity bar.

What you need to know

  • YouTube Music now features the "Energize" mood in its personalized mixes, its fifth mood filter.
  • The new mood is intended to perk you up after a long day, especially if you need some motivation.
  • It currently has four featured playlists based on your personal preferences.

YouTube Music has a new way to save you from boredom with the addition of a new mood filter to its personalized daily mixes. The new "Energize" mood joins the music streaming app's existing four filters for curated personalized playlists.

The new mood includes personalized daily mixes from various genres and artists that match your mood, especially if you want to listen to something upbeat (via 9to5Google). It appears at the top of the app's home page, alongside the existing mood filters, which include "Workout," "Relax," "Commute," and "Focus."

Google launched these new personalized mixes late last year, taking a cue from Spotify's Daily Mix feature and serving up various mixes based on your personal preferences. The Energize mood filter, like the others, features a "Mixed for you" carousel directly below the activity bar. This mix contains four playlists, the first of which is the "Supermix," followed by three other mixes.

More playlists to get you going are available below that carousel, including "Pop bangers," "Hip-hop energy," "Rock and punk anthems," "Latin bangers," "R&B bangers," and "Indie and alt anthems." These playlists will be updated on a regular basis, as usual.

The most recent update expands your options for curated playlists to listen to on one of the best music streaming services. YouTube Music added a feature earlier this year that would display related playlists at the bottom of each playlist. These are a mix of songs generated by Google's algorithm and those made publicly available by other users with similar musical tastes as you.

The new mood is now available on the YouTube Music app for many of the best Android phones and iOS devices, provided you've updated the app to the latest version.

How to get the Microsoft experience on a Chromebook

Microsoft's dedication to Android translates to a great Chrome OS experience, too. Once upon a time, to get the best experience for Microsoft services, you needed to buy a Windows laptop . If you were on a budget laptop with lower specs, though, performance was slow, all tasks were tedious, and your productivity suffered. These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature . (Side note: the famous quote about coming to kick ass and chew bubblegum and being all out of gum? Like most
