Apple Music’s redesigned Replay experience offers subscribers expanded listening insights and new functionality, including a completely personalized highlight reel.
With the new features, Apple Music subscribers can learn their top songs, artists, albums, genres, and more in a redesigned Replay experience.
2022 was a thrilling year in music, with listeners delving into new sounds, new languages, and new genres more than ever before. Additionally, the 2022 year-end charts show just how influential Apple Music listeners were in making 2022 a year to remember, both individually and as a community.
Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats, Oliver Schusser said, “When we first launched Replay, the feature became an instant fan favorite on Apple Music, and we really wanted to develop the experience further and make it even more special, personal, and unique for subscribers.”
“The music we enjoy throughout the year becomes like a soundtrack, and it’s really fun to be able to go back and relive those meaningful and memorable moments over again.”
