No matter how expertly a playlist is made or how long your favorite album runs, they all end eventually. And nothing breaks the vibe when your DJ suddenly runs out of steam. But a feature in Apple Music for iOS and Android will continue to play songs after an album or playlist has ended, choosing tracks that perfectly match what you were just listening to.
First introduced on iOS 14 and then added to Apple Music version 3.4 on Android, “Autoplay” allows you to continue playing music after an album or playlist has ended. The feature intelligently analyzes what music you just listened to and plays songs that fit that category. You may recognize some songs and you may not know others, but they should all fit well with your previous listening history.
To activate Autoplay, tap the Queue button at the bottom right (which looks like a list). Now tap the Autoplay button (which uses the infinity symbol) next to the Shuffle and Repeat buttons. Apple Music then automatically fills your upcoming “Playing Next”
Autoplay also works on albums and playlists in your own music library, but the selected songs are from Apple Music, not your own music library.
Turning on Autoplay will turn it on for all other albums and playlists you listen to on Apple Music. And if you are signed into Apple Music on other devices with the same Apple ID, it will be enabled there too. Turning off Autoplay will disable it on all connected devices.
