youtube he touched me and made me whole


Shackled by a heavy burden
Neath a load of guilt and shame
Then the hand of jesus touched me
And now I am no longer the same

He touched me, oh he touched me
And oh the joy that floods my soul
Something happened and now I know
He touched me and made me whole

Since I met this blessed savior
Since he cleansed and made me whole
I will never cease to praise him
Ill shout it while eternity rolls

He touched me oh he touched me
And oh the joy that floods my soul
Something happened and now I know
He touched me and made me whole,
YouTube, like Spotify, has a big built-in advantage when it comes to personalization and recommendation. Over the last decade, users have made hundreds of millions of playlists, an explicit act of curation that allows YouTubeБs machine learning algorithms to understand what songs sound good together and what tracks belong in a genre-specific playlist. Along with input from users and structured metadata added by the music labels, \”weБre a search engine so we have lots of data sources and pointers from the open web,\” says Fowler.

YouTube also has a small human curation staff. Their job is to build playlists, but also to check up on what the algorithms have created, trying to ensure nobody has that \”uh oh\” moment Jimmy Iovine described when praising AppleБs human-centric approach to playlisting. \”We do a lot of quality evaluations,\” says Fowler. \”Because when someone uses your service and asks for a certain style of music, when they expect something to play, that is an important contract you have fulfill. \” Along with the personalized playlists, the app has a tab called trending that will show you the most popular songs on YouTube, the fast-rising stars, and the unknowns the curation team thinks will be big in the near future. The goal is to build playlists \”that help our users understand what is culturally relevant,\” says Fowler.

IБve been using YouTube Red for a couple weeks and definitely feel itБs worth the $10 a month. I download a few clips to watch each morning on my subway commute to and from work and relish the ad-free experience. IБve also been able to enjoy a few broadcasters from gamers I like as audio only while doing chores around the house, essentially converting the clips to podcasts by enabling the background play feature. The one feature I really find lacking in Music is the ability to make playlists, but I know that when it comes to music services IБm hungry for power features that donБt necessarily appeal to the masses, and the goal here is to capture that massive audience which is already using YouTube as its everyday music service. It seems like it would have been easy enough to include, but Fowler insisted that the goal was to create the simplest, most stripped-down experience for the start.

Luckily YouTube Music recognizes that the key to a good offering these days is perfecting recommendation and discovery, and that doing it well requires using more than human editors, as Apple does. Fowler believes curation at scale, relying on a mix of humans and algorithms, is key to transforming a music app from a utility to an experience. \”IБve been working in this industry for decades, IБve built multiple music services. My favorite part about the evolution, itБs no longer just a utility like an outlet, that you can plug into and have all music. You plug into it and it helps make you fall back in love with music, it guides you along. \” Services like Discover Weekly have begun producing some magical moments in my life, and I have high hopes that YouTube Music might be able to do the same. YouTube, with a billion monthly users and global scale, is uniquely poised to help deliver that. \”The indigenous catalogs can be really unique.

In Australia, 30 percent of the music is \’90s alt rock, and that isnБt consumed anywhere else. To say my hand-curated list will satisfy that population is foolish,\” says Fowler. \”ItБs admirable to think you can curate the worldБs music, but once you go global, to have local knowledge, itБs best to give the power back to the user. \” With the launch of the dedicated music app, YouTube has fundamentally changed the market for streaming music. For the last two years the value proposition was clear. Pay $9. 99 a month for unlimited access to the same 30 million tracks, with a few exclusives or gaps here and there on certain services. Now you can pay $10 a month and get the worldБs biggest video library, ad free and offline, a well-built streaming music service with that stock catalog music, and a hybrid music video experience that is unlike anything else out there.
