As 2020 rears its head, Apple Music debuted a new feature to allow users to track their most-played songs of the year. Apple Music Replay, which launched today, builds a playlist of the songs you played the most throughout 2019. Subscribers will also be able to see which artists and albums were their most listened to, similar to Spotify’s “Wrapped” program from the end of each year.
Additionally, the new feature can build playlists for every year you’ve been an Apple Music subscriber. So yes, you can track how much you overplayed Blonde in 2016. The playlists will be updated every Sunday, meaning a 2020 playlist can be built based on most-played songs earlier into the next year. Users can share their Replay playlists with other users, too, just like any other playlist on the streaming platform.
While Spotify has offered auto-generated playlists based on listening activity in the past, this is the biggest effort from Apple on its service to cater to user tastes.
Now that iTunes is officially over as of last month, Apple Music has become the de facto way to listen to music for many. Replacing iTunes was a trio of apps, including Apple Music, Apple TV, and Podcasts.
Apple Music Replay is available here now.
