Collaborative Playlists in Apple Music

25 January 2024

The latest version of iOS—17.3—just dropped*, and with it comes a great and long overdue update to Apple Music: Collaborative Playlists.

There’s delightful touches throughout, including emoji reactions per song, which strikes me as just the right amount of social in a Music app.

If you want to test it out, update to 17.3 and add something good (no pressure) to my shared playlist (link below).

* Can operating systems “drop”, or is that reserved for sneakers and hipster brewery collabs? Needs research.
