Why won’t my Alarm play my music?

I’ve done everything I can think of to try fixing this problem: turning off Dolby Audio, turning off lossless audio, removing downloads, etc but nothing seems to work. Whenever an alarm goes off, it just plays the default alarm sound “radial”.

Suggest less!!!

Why is it that whenever I mark an artist/album as suggest less, it appears on my profile as recently listened to? I didn't hear it and I don't want to hear it. I marked Taylor Swift's latest album to suggest less and my profile shows that I just listened to it.

Any idea why my playlist disappeared from my phone after adding local files on my Mac?

I added some songs I downloaded then it disappeared, the songs showed up fine

Playlist Covers & Organizing.

Wish they would change it back to having the first four album covers as the default playlist cover.

I’ve only seen it show up a few times for a few seconds before it changes to the new default choices (where the first album displays its colors in the different effects like the ombré / record) There was something about it that made it easier to organize and remember where you put what in. It really bothers me for some reason.

I also can’t add music to the playlists anymore from the song / albums section without it only being in alphabetical order. You were once able to change it to organize it from recently added, title, year, artist. I can only do it when I’m not adding music to a playlist, and don’t want to have to do it one at a time.

Just sucks they made those changes. Hopefully they will add them back, unless if there’s a way to fix it.

(I have iOS 17.5.1)

Yeah Apple music Sucks at being random

So I listen to music 24/7 my minutes were over 200,000 in 2021 but have been on the decrease because im starting to use YouTube music more because their algorithm or whatev recommended a wider range of music i haven’t heard yet and Im a person who always needs some new stuff to listen to so I prefer that. Today was a last straw scenario… I recently was removing a lot of songs and decluttering my downloads/library and then pressed shuffle as a “Testing” round and I dont skip any songs throughout the test but the shuffle played the SAME SONG TWICE. I dont even have it downloaded more than once, I was infuriated because they always do this but this was specifically all my “downloaded songs only” so why and how could it play twice 😤, this isn’t my first rodeo though, multiple times ill be currently listening to a song then go to press shuffle then the same song will just “restart” and have a new queue. Also If you listen to a song once then it will immediately make its way in the first “page” of your shuffle queue or in your personal radio station, same goes with artists and albums, and dont even get me started with infinity mode 🤦‍♂️ To make a long fucking story short 💁‍♂️ If you just want to listen to the same shit all day get Apple Music ✨

'This Apple ID is not active'

(So, I'll happily admit that I'm not very tech-savvy. Secondly, I'm fairly new to Apple Music. So, sorry if I'm missing something here.)

Woke up today to play a song on Apple Music (on my Android phone), only for it to ask for my email and password. First issue: it tells me the password is incorrect. (I'm not sure if this is my forgetting, or them removing my Apple ID registration.

So, I try to reset my password. It says 'This Apple ID is not active'. I check my subscriptions and payments on my Google Play app, and this months' payment was made fine.

I've repeated the process many times: A) trying all of the passwords that it could have been B) trying to reset my password C) being told that 'this Apple ID is not active'.

Has anybody experienced this - or can anyone help please? It's just a minor inconvenience, but I'd be happy to fix it in whatever process it would need.

Thank you.

Possible to make it so a playlist cannot be deleted?

Exactly what the title says. Is it possible to make it so a playlist cannot be deleted?

PSA: If you’re using iOS 18 Beta, stop complaining about Apple Music not working right

These are developer betas at this point—not public releases. You’re going to find things that are broken, wonky UI issues, problems with your library and horrible battery drain. This is why you should NEVER put the developer betas on your day-to-day phone. Please stop cluttering this sub with problems related to iOS 18 and instead go into Feedback Assistant and leave the reports there.

Keeps separating Toby Fox from Pokémon albums

I recently got the three Pokémon soundtracks that came out recently , but when I synced them over to my phone, for some reason It separated all of the songs that Toby Fox did alone from the album. Strangely enough, any Toby Fox songs that had another artist name in them stayed in the main album for some reason, but I honestly have no clue why it’s doing on Apple Music iOS.

The new iOS update has disturbed my peace.

Long time Apple Music user.

Since the iOS update last week, my listening peace is ruined.

AirPlay to my two HomePods doesn’t work as smoothly, and is harder to control from my phone. CarPlay is also a pain. Instead of just being able to pause what was playing on my home pods, and then plug into my car and continue on, it now starts the playlist or album again, or goes back to whatever I was last listening in my car.

I am annoyed. Someone please tell me they’ve noticed these changes too!?

EDIT: I’m not on beta folks. See screenshot in comment below BUT THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN.

Apple Music Autoplay is better on iOS 18

I don’t know if it’s just me, but since iOS 18, Apple Music’s infinity play has been much better. Can anyone corroborate this?

Import tracks from iTunes on PC to AM on Android

Hi, I got an Apple Music sub from my sister (who uses Apple everything) and I was excited to try it out. I'm not an Apple user anymore except for my iPad, so I'm having some trouble figuring out how to move to AM.

On my PC I have an iTunes library consisting 100% of music I downloaded, bought or imported from CDs. I copy and paste the folders onto my Android phone and open them with Samsung Music.

A good portion of my library has matches on AM and I spent some time yesterday saving everything that was relevant, but not all tracks or albums are available. For example, Japan-exclusive bonus tracks, or Bastille's "Other People's Heartaches 1 and 2", or random Vocaloid music.

If I had an iPhone I guess I could just use iTunes to import these non-streaming tracks, but I don't, so is there a way to get these files onto Apple Music?? I quite liked the audio quality and animated album art, so it would be a shame to not be able to completely transfer my music library. Thanks

Do downloaded songs use data when you’re online?

I was wondering if songs I’ve downloaded use data when I’m in my car and I have my data on. I’m worried that they’ll use my data because it’s on and I can’t turn my data off as I obviously need it.

Music Listening Case Study

Hey all! I'm doing a case study for Spotify vs Apple Music and wanted to get some opinions. It's really quick (like 3 mins max) and just about the costs for each plan. Thanks!

Album artwork issues with imported files?

https://preview.redd.it/27no28tw5d7d1.png?width=1581&format=png&auto=webp&s=0f41ea7a78a5ee0e8f0930396b6e9f3e692dad98

I recently added ~1500 songs with correct tags and artwork to my library in order to sync it to an iPod. None of the artworks show on the Windows Apple Music library OR on the iPod, but if I go into Preferences -> Artwork on my desktop, it does show that there is artwork in place. Is there a way to fix this?

How a plays counted when the same song is released multiple times?

Like let’s say a song is released as a single, then part of an album and then again as part of the deluxe version of an album. Are these counted as three separate songs when streaming? Or is it complied?

Sound level

This is probably a glitch or something but i’ve been using apple music and suddenly the sound level is not appropriate because i used the spotify and youtube music to listen to the same song at the same volume and even used a decibel meter and it was 10 decibel lower for some reason on apple music and i’ve checked all the settings and it persists even on the phone speakers.Any suggestions?

Can I add an Android to my Family plan?

My dad has an android and the rest of us just started a family plan. Is there anyway to add him to it? Ik Apple Music is on the Play Store, but can he be in my sharing without being in my Apple family or whatever?

Also how does it sound on Android? I just switched from Spotify and the sound quality on my 15 Pro is incredible so I’m wondering if he’d enjoy the same quality on his Samsung.

Is there a 3rd party windows app that supports smart playlists?

Title. Is it just cider or Apple not giving the API?
