The change will affect millions of songs, and details will continually be added to clips. When I read, "produced by", I wanted to know the significance of these credits and know more about who was being credited.

It's a good addition to the YouTube platform, especially considering it will help provide proper credit to artists and songwriters involved in songs.

The new "music in this video" section will be added to over half a billion videos and will give viewers an instant look into the creatives and people behind music in videos.

Elton John commented, "songwriters are the heart and the soul of songs, so it's wonderful seeing them get the credit they deserve. We do have melody match tech that matches videos directly to musical compositions, but the quality of the metadata is still being improved.This will be an area for us to continue working with the industry and ultimately expand to covers etc". That being the case, the implementation of "Music in this Video" is still a net positive for all those concerned.

"This move by YouTube is an important step forward to deliver that goal and one which Sony/ATV welcomes".

When you're watching a video with a song you love, click "Show more" beneath the video for the song's name, artist, writers, licensors and a link to the official artist channel or music video when available.

YouTube follows in Spotify's footsteps-the streaming service added credits back in February.

JT Meyers, CEO of mtheory, commented: "Artists invest significant creative energy and financial resources to create compelling music videos".

"What YouTube has done by making credits a priority to its platform will allow a better music experience for all".

In today's digital world, achieving accurate and comprehensive song credits is more attainable than ever.

The section, called "music in this video, ' will start showing up on desktop and in the YouTube app under the 'show more" section.
