You don’t want to be that guy who’s never heard the track all your friends are raving about. But if you use Apple Music, you don’t have to be.
The new “Friends Mix” playlist makes it easy to enjoy the songs your friends can’t get enough of. It’s updated every week, and you can enjoy it now across all devices.
Apple has cut back on social features in the Music app since the dark days of iTunes Ping, however, it has given users a way to follow friends and share their listening history. Now staying up to date is even easier.
Apple Music adds new ‘Friends Mix’
You can now find a new Friends Mix playlist inside the For You section in Apple Music. It’s filled with tracks your friends have been listening to, and it’s updated every Monday so that you’re never out of the loop.
You can access Friends Mix inside the Apple Music app on Android and iOS, and through iTunes for Mac and PC. However, not everyone will be able to see it today — it’s going to take a little while for Apple to make it available to all.
Of course, you will also need friends inside Apple Music. To find some, visit the For You tab, then scroll down until you see Find & follow friends. Tap the Find More Friends button to see a list of contacts on Apple Music.
You also have the option to connect your Facebook account.
