Shared With You
Expanding on the Story Sharing and Lyrics Sharing features that allowed Apple Music users to share their music to Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat Stories, Apple Music has now introduced Shared With You. The new feature gives users an avenue to share music with others through Messages. Once music is shared through Messages, the music will be recorded and stored in a new Shared With You section in the Music app.
Apple Music and Photo Memories
Apple Music is now also part of the Memories feature in Photos. Millions of songs globally will be available for the soundtrack to photo memories, where users will be able to choose from different songs and also receive suggestions for tracks. The new feature also allows the Memories app to select songs based on the mood filters of the photo memories, allowing for a fitting soundtrack.
Lastly, SharePlay is now available which allows users to listen to the same music in real-time with family and friends all over the world. Available later this year, the feature can be utilized through FaceTime, which has been improved to include buttons that let users turn their cameras and microphones off, chat with each other, share a screen, and more. While being in a call, simply tap on the Music app and choose a song.
This will send a message to those in the call, asking them to join a SharePlay session. SharePlay will be available for albums, playlists, songs, as well as algorithmic stations and music videos.
