Apple Music has been updated on the iOS, Mac, and Online apps with a new playlist feature that has been called ‘Replay’.
It is designed to allow subscribers of Apple Music to see their top listened too songs of 2019, it also shows previous years too if you have a library older than 2019.
The service is online, and takes the user to an easy to use menu that instantly starts aggregating after the user has filled in the sign up menu. Once the service has finished populating the playlist, it then lets you listen, or to add to the Apple Music Library, where the playlist can be accessed via the Music app after a few moments.
The playlist is said to also keep updating as the listener listens to new songs as the year continues, as a listeners main listening trends may change from now to the end of the year. The playlist is set to be updated every Sunday by Apple, with new songs and new insights to ‘reflect each persons current listening activity’.
This is the first service of its kind to land itself in Apple Music, and shows that Apple is exploring new ways to continue expanding its usefulness as a music streaming service. Competitors like Spotify have supported such features for the last few years, so it meant Apple would have needed to add such a feature soon, to keep being a competitor to the other streaming services Apple Music shares the market with.
It is in the process of rolling out, but it will be available on the iOS Music app, Mac Music App, and the online Apple Music platform also.
