1. What Is Apple Music Replay?

Since 2019, Apple Music has automatically generated a playlist featuring subscribers’ top songs of the year, known as Apple Music Replay. The 2024 Apple Music Replay was released at the end of January. At first, the Apple Music Replay playlist may not have many songs, but it will gradually grow over time. By the end of the year, subscribers will have a playlist of up to 100 favorite songs on Apple Music Replay.

2. How to Get Apple Music Replay?

Apple Music Replay analyzes your listening history and calculates the number of plays and time spent on a song, artist, album, playlist, genre, and station, then creates a specialized Replay playlist for you. However, it is rather a record and summary of your music listening habit than just a playlist. If you go to the Apple Music Replay Website (music.apple.com/replay), you can get the statistics of your listening milestones such as top songs, top artists, and albums of the year so far.
