Apple Music Replay 2023 Experience Now Live

Apple today rolled out the Apple Music Replay experience for 2023, allowing subscribers to see their top artists, songs, albums, genres, playlists, and stations of the year.

Apple Music Replay 23 Feature
Users can watch a custom Highlight Reel at the top of the Replay webpage before diving into more detailed information and expanded listening insights. The highlight reel presents a series of social media-style animated cards that show musical highlights from the past year based on your listening history. Relevant music plays in the background for each card. The highlight reel is viewable on desktop browsers, but it appears to be primarily designed for mobile devices.

After the highlight reel, users can scroll down to see featured sections with more informative breakdowns of their top albums and playlists from the past year. Users can add their Apple Music Replay 2023 playlist to the Music app at the bottom of the page.

Apple has made some changes to the ‌Apple Music‌ Replay experience for 2023, including a darker color palette and new animations in the Highlight Reel. Milestones also can now be viewed on iOS and Highlight sides can be shared directly to social media platforms for the first time. Last year, Apple revamped the Apple Music Replay experience by introducing the Highlight Reel and a series of other improvements.

‌Apple Music‌ Replay is Apple's answer Spotify Wrapped, but ‌Apple Music‌ Replay remains a web browser only experience. The Music app itself can only show and play a basic playlist of your top songs for the year, ranked by most played, once it has been added via the Replay webpage.

To view your 2023 ‌Apple Music‌ Replay experience and try out the new highlight reel, visit replay.music.apple.com.

Why not do it in app instead of a website link

This is a real amateur hour launch from Apple. Here's my experience on a MBP:

* Open Music app
* See "year in review" and notice the "view on site" link. ? I want to see this in the Music app, not some website I don't use?
* Click the link anyway and it loads a web player (why?) and of course I'm not logged in there. Well that's annoying.
* Log in and all I see is an animation with the words "This is your Replay" over and over. There is nothing else. Nothing to review, nothing to play, no path forward.

Forcing this to a website is already unexcusable (How many years do they need to build a year in review into the Music app on macOS?!) but how did the above experience pass QA?

Such a cheap feeling web experience, shame. Where's the native, SwiftUI, cross-platform, buttery smooth animations? Spotify wrapped is a big deal, I'm surprised this is such an afterthought to the Apple execs.
