"For years, this is one thing Spotify was better at doing for its users," she added. "It discovered music for you and recommended music based on your listening behavior. It sort of became a personal musical researcher and butler. Apple has maintained a more detached but exclusive feel, very consistent with its branding. This new station is a good attempt at bridging itself closer to its users." Fairlane Raymundo, the CEO of Asian Entertainment And Culture, said in an email.

Spotify has the Discover Weekly playlist, which updates every morning with songs by new and familiar artists inspired by your listening history. Pandora, Amazon Music, and other apps allow you to start a station based on an artist to listen to an endless stream of similar music.


Apple Music Discovery Station is a personalized radio station that updates every week with new songs that match your taste and mood. You can access it from the Radio tab in the Apple Music app or on the web. The station plays a mix of genres and artists that you already like, as well as new ones that you might not have heard of before.

The station is powered by Apple Music's algorithm, which analyzes your music library, playlists, likes, and dislikes to create a customized playlist for you. You can also influence the station by rating the songs that play, either with a heart or a dislike. The more you rate, the more the station learns about your preferences and adjusts accordingly.


Apple Music Discovery Station is a great way to discover new music without having to search for it yourself. You can just sit back and enjoy the tunes, or explore more about the artists and albums that catch your interest. You can also share the station with your friends or family, or download it for offline listening.

If you're an Apple Music subscriber, you can start listening to Apple Music Discovery Station right now. Just open the app or go to and look for the station under the Radio tab. You might be surprised by what you find.
