The YouTube Music team is launching a “Listening Room” program to give selected users early access to features and provide feedback to “help shape the future of YTM”.
If chosen, you will get early access to new features and join an “exclusive group of users” on Discord with the YouTube Music product team. Plus, you’ll get a free year of YouTube Music Premium.
Requirements include: being a lover of music, using YouTube Music as your primary music streaming service for a year, giving regular feedback through conversations and polls on Discord, and agreeing to not share any information with anyone outside of the Discord group.
The sign-up process on Google Forms asks how often you listen to streaming music and what you consider to be your primary service. You’ll also be asked to list your favorite artists and genres, as well as select one of seven possible user types.
In addition, the team is asking about form factor usage and frequency, short-form video consumption, and how often you listen to audio-first content. There are also demographic questions.
If accepted, you will be contacted in February 2023 with next steps.
