8tracks, the streaming underdogs, have added some new features, to give users and creators a better overall experience. 8tracks allows users to create playlists of any genre using YouTube links.

Updates now allow users who create playlists to view detailed analytics on how far listeners make it into mixes, how many plays or skips a song in a mix gets, and more. This gives creators a better interaction with the community.

Users are graced with better ‘Exploring’ options. 8tracks will now display relevant tags to you, based on your frequent searches.
