This week Apple has debuted the latest of its personalized playlists for Apple Music users. Called “My Chill Mix,” the playlist will automatically populate with, you guessed it, chill, low-key songs based on the user’s Apple Music listening history and song ratings.
According to a report from TechCrunch, “a small number of test users got the new playlist yesterday evening. An updated Chill playlist will be delivered every Sunday to users who join the test group, which will roll out through the summer.”
Apple, in a report from The Loop, said that “…the new mix will not be available to everyone immediately, but it will show up over time.”
In screenshots, the playlist doesn’t have a description like My Favorites Mix and My New Music Mix, but a few users who have been listening to the playlist have given a decent description of what kind of music it includes.
Each subscriber’s Chill Mix will update once a week, apparently every Sunday. A pair of control buttons will allow the subscriber to play his/her Chill Mix in the order seen on the screen, or the titles can be shuffled allowing for a random playback order. Each Apple Music subscriber will end up with a unique experience based on his/her listening habits.
Comparatively, the current My Favorites Mix (refreshed every Wednesday) gives subscribers a list of the songs they most listen to, while My New Music Mix (refreshed every Friday) recommends newly released music that aligns with the taste of a user’s previous listening history.
On a related note, Diddy has debuted his hip hop documentary, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story, exclusively on Apple Music.
