The service is adding new features, more music, revised designs and now YouTube Music has been spotted working on automated recommendations more front-and-center than before with some more music suggestions appearing in the media player area in the notification shade and also on the lock screen.

They only show up when connecting with audio devices with Bluetooth or USB-C port, suggesting some playlists for you to dive into. The card makes it pretty much clear that the content is coming from YouTube Music with a YT Music label and the logo of the app appearing in the left and three suggestions visible on the right-hand side.
