Over 250 new mood and activity Apple Music playlists are rolling out
Following the announcement of the Apple Music Voice plan earlier this month, Apple is now rolling out over 250 new Apple Music playlists based on user activity and mood.
At its “Unleashed” event earlier this month, which also saw the launch of new AirPods and MacBook Pro models, Apple announced that Apple Music was gaining hundreds of new mood and activity-based playlists for complete an all-new low-cost voice plan. .
The Apple Music voice plan costs $4.99 per month and gives subscribers access to Apple Music’s vast library of songs and playlists using Siri on any Apple device, but holds back features like than spatial and lossless audio. It also features a cleaner in-app experience with suggestions based on listening habits and a queue of recently played music via Siri, rather than the full Apple Music app UI.
To kick off the voice plan, Apple announced that more than 250 new playlists based on moods and activities were being added to Apple Music. These playlists are curated by the Apple Music editorial team and are voice-optimized, although they are available to all Apple Music users. To access playlists, users can use Siri commands such as “Play dinner playlist”, “Play something cool”, or “Play more like this”.
As first spotted by MacStories, these playlists are now deployed to users. Each playlist features custom animated cover art in a minimalist style, but Apple does not currently provide a central location to access all new mood and activity playlists within the Apple Music app.
MacStories shared a comprehensive guide that lists all the new playlists and even offers a shortcut to quickly access them locally. Guide and Shortcut groups new playlists into categories such as Happy, Feeling Bad, Angry, Chill, Confidence and Optimism, Self-Care, Inspiration and Focus, Work and Study, Get Going and Get Out, Romantic, Family and Celebrations, Workout, Sports and Games, Activities, Chores, Driving and Transportation, Places, Meals, Seasons and Weather, and Zodiac.
The Apple Music Voice Plan will launch later this fall in 17 countries and regions, including Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, United States. United Kingdom and the United States.
