YouTube Music is finally letting you change the cover art of your playlists. While you still won’t get to upload your own image, you can now make a custom image using generative AI.
As shown in the below GIF, you can create AI-generated art by tapping the pen icon in the bottom right corner of your playlist’s cover art. You can then select the category that you want your image to fall into, like animals, food and drink, colors, nature, or travel.
From there, you can either hit “randomize” or choose from several prompts, such as creating a pug “in the style of a Medieval Gothic painting.” The AI will output five different images for you to choose from. Once you hit “save,” that art will become the image representing your playlist.
