Apple Music has started a new playlist that will let users listen to their favorite songs of the year. Apple Music Replay playlist curates songs users listened to the most during the year.
Furthermore, Apple Music Replay can be accessed on the app by tapping on the browse section. Here, scroll right to find ’19 Replay playlist under special announcement.
Users will be taken to a webpage where they have to sign in with their Apple ID and their ‘19 Replay playlist will launch. A more comfortable way to do this is by simply visiting replay.music.apple.com. This feature is accessible on the Apple Music web app as well.
Apple Music Replay playlist will be updated weekly and users need to add the playlist for it to show up on the Apple Music app. In addition to showing the user’s favorite songs, Apple Music also shows data on the user’s listening history.
Here, users will find the several artists they’ve listened to and the top 10 albums they listened to the most. Those who have used Apple Music before 2019 can get their 2017 and 2018 Replay playlists as well.
Apple Music’s throwback playlist is quite similar to it’s rival Spotify’s 2018 Wrapped feature. Similar to Apple Music Replay, Spotify Wrapped shows users their listening history of the year with their most played songs, newly discovered artists, genres and more.
Spotify also introduced something similar for artists where they could check which songs were streamed the most and for how many hours.
While Apple Music took inspiration from Spotify for its Replay feature, the former could return the favor with the integration of lyrics.
According to a report by TechCrunch, Spotify confirmed it is testing real-time lyrics, a feature Apple Music launched earlier this year. Visible to some Spotify users, the music streaming company is partnering with Musixmatch for the lyrics integration. While Spotify did confirm the feature it did not give any further details.
