Part 1. How to Turn On Autoplay on Apple Music

For starters, pick up your device to select a song to stream on Apple Music to see the Now Playing bar, then it's time to hand the task to Autoplay Apple Music to play similar songs and plays them afterward with a few simple taps or clicks.

Note: Autoplay is one of the features for an existing Apple Music subscription. If the subscription is no longer existing for this feature, there won't be the Autoplay button.

For iPhone/Android to turn on Apple Music Autoplay:

On Mac, the Apple Music Autoplay is also available as long as the Apple Music subscription is active. Just like in the Apple Music app for mobile, the Autoplay button and the Autoplay section are kept separate.

1. In the Apple Music app for Mac, see the Now Playing bar at the top of the screen.

2. Next to the volume slider, see and click the Playing Next button (Music Inline icon) in the top-right corner of the screen.

3. In the Playing Next queue, see the infinity icon at the top of the queue.

4. To turn on Autoplay on Apple Music, click the Autoplay icon to make it red.

Once the Autoplay is on, it's up to Apple Music users to use it to add songs similar to the one playing to the end of the queue.

On Apple Music's platforms above, it should be familiar for users to manage the songs in the queue with the enabled Autoplay: to play a song, add or move songs to a preferred situation in the queue, change the order of songs in the queue, remove songs from the queue, which is a similar progress.

Additional Tip: How to Get More Control of Songs from Apple Music

Use Apple Music Autoplay to discover more similar songs can be exciting, but there's one more precaution - that is, this is the exclusives to Apple Music subscriptions. This means once the Apple Music subscription is no longer to exist (for example: expired or cancelled), users no longer have this access to the unique listening experience.

From here we'd like to recommend a method to get more control of songs from Apple Music - using ViWizard Audio Converter.

Once the songs are added to ViWizard, it can convert them into 6 supported formats, including MP3, AAC, M4A, M4B, WAV and FLAC for keeping as personal music collection.
