How to see your favorite songs on Apple Music

Apple Music has a feature that allows you to bookmark a song that you “love.” Once you’ve marked a song like this, Apple Music adds a heart icon so you can easily see the songs you’ve liked later. You can also add “wanted” songs to a playlist, making it easy to access and listen whenever you want. This is especially true if you are in the habit of loving the songs you have heard. There will come a point where these songs will be too many and you will find it difficult to remember them later. In this quick guide, I’ll walk you through the steps on how to view your favorite songs in Apple Music and how you can add these favorite songs to a playlist.
