Apple Music now has more than 250 lists of emotions and activities

The Apple Music Voice Plan costs $4.99 a month and allows customers to use Siri on any Apple device to access Apple Music’s vast library of music and playlists, but it lacks features like spatial audio and lossless. Instead of the complete Apple Music app UI, it has a pared-down in-app experience with suggestions based on listening patterns and a queue of music that was recently played through Siri.

As first spotted by MacStories, these playlists are now rolling out to users. Each playlist features custom animated cover art in a minimalist style, but Apple is not currently providing a central location to access all of the new mood and activity playlists in the ‌Apple Music‌ app.

MacStories has shared a comprehensive guide that lists all of the new playlists and is even offering a Shortcut to get fast access to them locally. The guide and Shortcut groups the 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, Doing Chores, Driving and Transportation, Places, Meals, Seasons and Weather, and Zodiac.

Story Highlights

  • Apple unveiled hundreds of new tracks based on moods and activities to complement an all-new low-cost Voice Plan during its “Unleashed” event earlier this month, which also saw the debut of new AirPods and MacBook Pro models.

  • To kickstart the Voice Plan, Apple announced that over 250 new playlists based around moods and activities were being added to ‌Apple Music‌. These playlists are curated by ‌‌Apple Music‌‌’s editorial team and are optimized for the Voice Plan, though they are available to all ‌Apple Music‌ users. To access the playlists, users can use ‌‌Siri‌‌ commands like “Play the dinner party playlist,” “Play something chill,” or “Play more like this.”
