HOW TO Make A Quick On The Go Playlist With iOS 10 – Rhyme Hip Hop

“Many people are wondering just what this Up Next feature is, now that it is a bit more visible. This new ability will allow you to create a tiny playlist for the time being, with songs of your choice. Instead of clicking from one song to the next after the song is over, this temporary playlist will allow full indulgence into the listening aspect of your music, which is how it was supposed to be.”

Ask the iTunes Guy: Your questions about the iOS 10 Music app | Macworld

“Many people manage their iTunes libraries with smart playlists populated with their favorite music from certain artists and genres and with specific star ratings. I have a number of playlists for my 4- and 5-star music, and these are essential to me. They allow me to sync music that I really like to my iPhone, without having to trawl through my vast music library and choose specific albums or songs. I also sync new music to my iPhone, and rate it to decide what to keep, or what to listen to again…Apple has indeed removed star ratings from the iOS Music app in favor of Love and Dislike ratings; mostly.”

Listening Out Loud Just Got Easier With Your Sonos App | SONOS

“Sure, the radio always provided a sort-of playlist function, but its one-size-fits-all approach left out anyone who didn’t fit into its very specific (and repetitive) mold. The modern, personalized playlist is decidedly a result of modern technology. Without the CD burners and a-la-carte song purchases made possible by cutting-edge 2004 tech, collecting independent songs together simply couldn’t happen. And neither could playlists.”

“The biggest change is in how the queue works. Now you can just click a song from any album, playlist, or the queue and it starts right away. You can now select Play All on a playlist or album instead of having to choose between Play Now or Play Next, saving you a step. And you can better tell what music should be played where if you have different playlists going in different rooms. The idea is to make it easier to have a continuous flow of music you like from whatever mix you’re listening to going without interruptions.”
