Replay is the latest feature of Apple Music. It lets you see the songs you've played the most throughout the year. Although similar to Spotify's Wrapped playlist, Apple Music Replay lets you view your most played songs at any time. You can access this playlist with different devices, and it will only take a few moments.
In this guide, we will show you how to see your most played songs on Apple Music on various devices.
Apple Music Replay is a sort of auto-generated summary playlist that shows you the music you have listened to the most on this music streaming app. This feature was introduced by Apple Music in January 2022, so you can use it to see your most played songs from 2022 or any other year.
These playlists consist of artists, bands, and songs you've listened to the most. Apple Music Replay not only gives you the ability to find out what you listened to years ago, but it can also remind you of songs you may have forgotten. Moreover, Apple doesn't just integrate the music you've listened to on your iPhone, but from any other device you've used to sign in to your Apple Music account.
This feature was inspired by Spotify's Wrapped playlist. However, unlike the Wrapped feature, which is only accessible at the end of the year, you can check your Replay playlist on Apple Music all year round.
However, there is one prerequisite for having a Replay playlist, and that is an Apple Music subscription. If you have never had a subscription until now, but have always listened to Apple Music, Apple will not be able to create the Replay playlist for you. If you choose to subscribe to Apple Music now, you'll be able to see your most played songs this year once you've listened to enough songs.
You can access your Apple Music Replay playlist on the Apple Music website or app on your iPhone. To find your most played Apple Music songs on your iPhone, follow the steps below:
- Go to the Apple Music app on your home screen.
- Go to the "Listen Now" tab in the bottom menu.
- Locate the "Replay: Your Top Songs by Year" folder at the bottom of the "Listen Now" section.
- Open the "Replay 2022" folder.
- Scroll down to see all the songs you listened to the most in 2022.
This playlist is updated regularly, so you won't have to worry about finding songs you don't like to be included anymore. At this point, you can hit the "Play" or "Shuffle" buttons under the playlist title if you feel like listening to it.
The Replay playlist consists of 100 songs from each year. If you want to see the songs you listened to the most in 2022, look for the "Replay 2022" folder in the "Replay: your best songs by year" section.
You will be able to see the “Featured Artists” section under each playlist. If you want to see exactly which artists you've been listening to, tap the "Show All" option in the lower right corner of your screen.
