Apple launches new Apple Music playlists

Apple has rolled out over 250 new playlists to Apple Music, following an announcement alongside a new Apple Music tier at the MacBook Pro (2021) event earlier this week.

As reported by MacStories:

Playlists started appearing on Apple Music, so last night Federico and I started searching the streaming service to see what’s new. What we found are over 250 playlists, each designed to fit a mood or activity that uses an animated cover with simple line art to set them apart from other playlists in Apple. Although they were announced as Siri Playlists at Monday’s event, anyone with an Apple Music subscription can view and play the new playlists in the Music app just like anyone else. another playlist from the service’s collection.

As the report notes, there’s no playlist directory or filters to find them, you just have to find them by asking Siri. That’s partly because these new playlists complement an all-new voice-only plan for Apple Music, as announced earlier this week. From Apple:

Apple today announced the Apple Music Voice Plan, a new subscription tier for Apple Music designed around the power of Siri. The Apple Music Voice plan gives subscribers access to the service’s catalog of 90 million songs; tens of thousands of playlists, including hundreds of new mood and activity playlists, custom mixes and genre stations; plus award-winning Apple Music Radio – all through Siri for just $4.99 a month.

MacStories has the full list of available playlists that have been found so far.
