Apple Music’s Replay service, which produces a selection of playlists based on what it listens to during the year, is now updated to support 2020, according tomedia outlet Apple Insider. Apple Music now seems ready for the 2020 Replay playlist. The service is used to generate top 100 playlists and update sits every Sunday using the user’s listening history.
This is a unique feature compared to Spotify’s own “Wrapped” service, which only offers playlists and other data at the end of the year.
Apple first released Replay in November 2019. The service uses Apple’s Apple Music website to generate playlists for the first time. Users can add all available playlists to Apple Music, as early as 2015. Older playlists are interesting because they are no longer updated after the end of the year and can provide unique insights into your music interests for a particular year.
Because it’s too early, some users may not have enough history to populate the full playlist.
Apple Music, one of Apple’s subscription services, has become a very important source of revenue for the company. As they continue to compete with Spotify, more new features are expected.
