Apple Music Replay 2022 vs 2023: What Changed
Unlike Replay 2022, which had fewer graphics and relied more on text, Replay 2023 comes with improved visuals and new animations. This makes Replay 2023 more engaging and visually appealing to explore your listening statistics. This year, you can also check if you are among the top 100 listeners of your preferred artist or genre for the year! Isn’t this amazing to flex how big a fan you are of an artist?
Other than that, Replay 2023 has introduced an exciting new feature called the milestones slide. This showcases the number of unique artists and songs you have listened to, along with the dates when you reached these milestones. Additionally, it also displays the moments when you surpassed specific listening thresholds, such as rocking out for 10,000 minutes.

How to Find Apple Music Replay
Unlike Spotify and YouTube Recap, Apple Music Replay is a web-based experience. It is annoying that you have to leave the Music app for the Replay but on the other end, you can view your Replay on any computer or mobile browser. Here’s how to check your Apple Music Replay.
1. Here is the Apple Music Replay webpage. You can also open Apple Music, go to Listening Now tab, and scroll a little to find the Just Launched section where you will find Replay in bright colors.
2. If you haven’t signed in to Apple Music on your web, a sign-in page will appear. Sign in from your account to proceed. Once done, you will be greeted with a text This is your Replay. Tap on Jump In below that.
Pro Tip: Have you tried the new collaborative playlist feature in Apple Music? With this, you can now collaborate with your friends, family, or fellow music lovers to create and manage playlists together.
Sharing Replay stats can be a great way to start conversations and reminisce about music memories, making it a fun experience for all.
To share any template of Replay, just tap on the Share icon on the button left on the reel you want to share.
After that you can directly save the image to your iPhone by tapping on Save Image or you can select the app on which you want to share the Replay.
1. Sharing the Replay directly to a social media app may limit your ability to customize the post. For instance, if you share the Replay directly to your Instagram story, you won’t be able to include music. It’s advisable to save the image so you can create a more creative post.
2. Although you can view the Replay on any web browser on the computer, the option to share the Replay is only available with mobile web browsers.
