Apple Music’s Most Played Songs

Apple Music’s latest feature is Replay. This feature allows you to view the songs that you have played the most over the course of the year. Apple Music Replay, which is similar to Spotify’s Wrapped playlist, allows you to see your most-played songs whenever you like. This playlist can be accessed with multiple devices and takes only a few seconds.

This guide will show you how to view your most-played songs on Apple Music across different devices.

Apple Music Replay

Apple Music Replay allows you to see the top music that you have listened to on the app’s music streaming service. Apple Music introduced this feature in January 2021. You can use it to view your most-listened songs from any year, including 2020.

These playlists include artists, bands, as well as songs that you listened to most. Apple Music Replay allows you to see what songs you’ve listened to over the years. It can also help you recall songs that you might have forgotten. Apple includes music from your iPhone and any other devices you signed in to your Apple Music account.

This feature was inspired from Spotify’s Wrapped playlist. You can access your Replay playlist all year long, but not like the Wrapped feature which is only available at the end of the year.
A subscription to Apple Music is a prerequisite for a Replay playlist. Apple will not be able to create a Replay playlist if you don’t have a subscription to Apple Music but have listened to Apple Music. After listening to enough songs, Apple Music will show you your most-listened songs for the year.
