Apple Music is a good alternative to Spotify, but it was constantly lagging in one critical area for a music flow service: Recommendations. Spotify users have long appreciated the algorithmic ability of their app to serve their useful music recommendations, and those who have tried both services seem to agree with the Apple Music, just not so good in it. In their honor, Apple worked on it. The last attempt to overcome this gap: the opening station.
What is the Apple Music opening station?
The Discovery Station is a new algorithmic playlist that is aimed at the surface of songs similar to your Apple Music library. It emphasizes only the music you have never heard by highlighting it from all other Apple Music play lists. If you are trapped in listening to the same songs over and over, the Discovery station offers an easy way to expand your horizon.
So far I dig it. As someone who continues to look for new music in a wide range of genres, I think that the opening station is a great way to personalize this experience.
For those who come from Spotify, this new feature is close enough to open a weekly one that helps you find new music with a recreational list that is updated every week. Discovery Station is an algorithmic play list that is automatically updated on the basis of your musical taste.
Discovery stations are still missing one compared to Spotify equivalent, however: that does not show you a complete list of songs in your playlist. You can only see one future song and you have to continue listening to find out more.
How can I try the opening station?
Apple does not make it obvious where to find Discovery Station in Apple Music app. Go toListen to nowTab and draw with your finger right under the top elections until you find it. It unfolds all over the world, so if you don’t see it right away, you just have to wait a little longer until it appears on your device.
Despite the fact that Discovery Station is quite good, it always recommends songs you don’t like. If this happens to you, open the music app and touch the mini -pleter to extend it. This will show you an album of art and the name of the song below it. TapIcon with three pointsnext to the song’s name and selectOffer less. It helps you tell the algorithm that you want to hear less music as the song in question.
Apple Music is still tracking Spotify
Even with this new feature, Apple Music has ways to talk about music recommendation. The Listen Now tab shows many great options, but Spotify offers at least five daily mix lists that are automatically updated daily. It also has a list of radar reproduction that emphasizes the new music you can check.
If you are not satisfied with the types of play lists, Apple Music generates, we have a guide to create our own algorithmic smart play lists. It teaches how to determine your own algorithm (no coding is required) and create a play lists according to your tastes. It only takes about 10 minutes, but if it is too much work, you can instantly transfer your favorite SPotify play lists to Apple Music.
