    Auto stations are the playlists generated for you based on a particular track, album, artist or playlist. Apple Music easily has the worst of any streaming service imo (okay except Simfy, but they don't even count these days). So like Spotify, you have to hope that the curated playlists can do a good job. Sometimes they can, but I find that Play Music's ability to generate excellent playlists automatically trumps all other features.

    At the end of the day, I discover much more new music with Play Music than Spotify or Apple Music. That gives it the edge over the competition for me. And of course it has a R90pm family plan and allows uploading music, so it's a strong value proposition.
    Okay so basically what is just called "Stations" on Apple Music.

    I rarely use it but can't say I've ever felt a problem from it and has always matched my tastes, but then I've not used it comparatively at all.

    I'm very much set in my ways with these kind of things.

    Maybe I"ll take a Google Music trial for a spin when I spend time in the car again.

    I'm finding it absurdly slow to search for artists.

    Deeply dislike the Xbox One interface for changing tracks when going through the queue.

    I just want to see what's up next because I don't know what it is you muppets, not directly skip to it without asking me or letting me press a button.

    Also how about some Crossfade? And buggering the next song in advance for a smooth transition instead of dead air?

    Where are the lyrics?


    I do however like the auto gamer playlists so far and the genres inside them. The moods seem to work well in general.

    Speaking of moods whatever happened to Songza? They were the first to really do this mood thing nicely.

    I do also like that it doesn't necessarily "hand over" to the other device and shows you what's playing on all devices without having to cast to it from the phone.

    Means you can grab your phone to check or change tracks without quitting your game. Usually that only works if you initiated from your phone and cast it to the other device.

    Also lacks a like/dislike function. So I assume you only have relevance by adding stuff to your own library.

    ****

    Seems like/dislike is an Xbox limitation. It does show up on the phone.

    Yeah and for like an hour it wasn't working then all of a sudden the download option was avail, so is it free to use?
    I am not clued up on this but i could listen to Run The Jewels albums without any issues, it was just a bit late to fiddle around.
    Will check it later when i am home.

    I'm quite happy with the PS4 integration. It is just taking time to get my collection up to speed.

    Web app or the windows App? its lightning fast for me in the standalone app and the android App.

    P.S. small tip for those that want an artist/band specific playlist: just search "This is band name" and it will give you a playlist with that artists songs.

    When doing the setup of artists you like.
