Apple Music Renaming 'Get Up! Mix' to 'Workout Mix'

Apple Music is rolling out a small update to its latest weekly playlist, renaming the "Get Up! Mix" to simply "Workout Mix" (via MacStories' John Voorhees). Apple launched the "Get Up! Mix" in March 2020, boosting the weekly curated playlist count to five, including "Favorites Mix," "Friends Mix," "New Music Mix," and "Chill Mix."

The "Get Up! Mix" was built around curating a collection of songs to help ‌Apple Music‌ subscribers get up and move, so the switch to a direct "Workout Mix" makes sense. The new name appears to be rolling out slowly today.

Apple began a large-scale playlist rebranding in 2019, switching "The A-List: Dance" to "danceXL," "The A-List: Hip-Hop" to "Rap Life," "The A-List: Alternative" to "ALT CTRL," and "Best of the Week" to "New Music Daily." All of the playlists essentially stayed the same, but ditched "The A-List" moniker that had been around since ‌‌Apple Music‌‌ launched in 2015.

‌Apple Music‌ received a few updates in iOS 14 this month, with a new "Listen Now" tab that highlights new playlists, albums, and artists that match your listening tastes. ‌Apple Music‌ playlists in the Listen Now section feature larger artwork that is also animated, and pressing the play, pause, next, and back buttons on the Now Playing screen in the app‌ provides haptic feedback.

I feel like there are a lot of more important updates they could make on Apple Music. Like giving the user the option to blanket organize their personal playlists based on date added instead of having to individually scroll each song to where they want (while also maintaining this feature but adding the above as an additional option). Also, they could add a feature that allows me to control whatever is playing on my HomePod or other device that is playing Apple Music from the Mac/iPhone App (currently you can do so only if you airplay it in, I'm talking "Hey Siri play this" and it showing up across all devices to control). Also, the Mac OS app is clunky so that could really use an update. Lastly, making playlist updates/changes more efficient.

But hey...new playlist names...good; very very good....

I am getting mostly Kpop music in my get up mix recommendation. The music is a nice way to perk up a Monday morning, but I am not really going to work out to it. Just saying...
I agree, Workout Mix isn’t the right name for it. It is upbeat music but not workout music, at least for me.

I actually canceled my Spotify subscription a week ago. Mostly because I felt that paying for both and barely using either was a bit stupid.

I did however forget to state my reason for canceling as “you are messing with JRE”..

Spotify has better music discovery for me. The GetUp playlist is alright but I find it funny that they put 10 trance songs first and then a random radio pop song and finishes the list with 11 metal/rock songs.

Most that I dont like.
