A nice extra feature for subscribers
Do you ever wonder which songs or albums you listen to the most? If you’re an Apple Music subscriber, you can find out with Apple Music Replay.
Like Spotify Wrapped, you can see a recap of which songs, albums, and artists you play the most each year. In addition, you can add your Replay as a playlist, share it with others, and access it on the web and your Apple devices.
How Apple Music Replay Is Assembled
Apple uses your listening habits and history in the Music app to determine which songs comprise your Apple Music Replay.
It includes songs that you play on your Apple devices where you’re signed into Apple Music with your Apple ID, songs available in the Apple Music catalog, and synced with your Apple Music subscription.
It does not include music you listen to on devices where you have Use Listening History disabled.
You can view an Apple Music Replay for each year you are an Apple Music subscriber. If you don’t see a Replay, turn on the history feature to see future Apple Music Replays.
Turn On Apple Music Listening History
On iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, open your Settings and select Music. Turn on the toggle for Use Listening History.
On a Mac, open the Apple Music app and select Music > Preferences. On the General tab, check the box for Use Listening History and hit OK.
On Apple TV, open Settings and select Apps. Choose Music and pick Use Listening History to turn it on. It will then display as On.
Access Apple Music Replay on the Web
If you don’t have an Apple device handy, you can get your Apple Music Replay online in any browser.
- Visit the Apple Music Replay website at music.apple.com/replay.
- Select Sign In on the top right to enter your Apple ID username and password.
