[Updated] Apple Music Replay '22 reportedly not working, loading or updating for a section of users
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on November 30, 2022) follows:
It is that time of the year when music lovers look forward to their musical journey throughout the year in a fun and exciting way. Platforms like Spotify Wrapped, Icebergify, and more help fulfill that purpose.
For Apple users, it is the Apple Music Replay feature that helps them relive the music that defined their year.
Some Apple Music users were unhappy with the Replay feature because it couldn’t match up to the innovative nature of Wrapped. And now Apple has revamped the feature by introducing various exciting ways to present data.
Apple Music Replay ’22 not working
However, a number of users (1,2,3,4,5) are disappointed to find that Apple Music Replay is not really working, loading, or updating their yearly recap of their music history.
is the new apple music replay update not working for anyone else rn?
hi, my apple music replay has been loading for the past 4 hours on the first screen. idk what’s going on, i’ve even closed out and turned my phone off and on again multiple times.
Reports suggest that Apple Music Replay stopped working after subscribing to the family plan. And since then, users are unable to access any of the Replay data and features.
Some Apple Music users are also complaining that the feature starts glitching almost every year. It simply says ‘Once you listen to music, you’ll be eligible for Replay’.
The issue is quite frustrating because the screen is always showing the Replay logo loading over and over again.
Issue is not yet acknowledged
For now, Apple hasn’t commented on the issue yet so users will have to wait for the team to come up with a solution.
Unfortunately, we also haven’t come across a workaround that can help fix the issue temporarily.
We’ll keep tabs on the latest developments and update this article as and when something noteworthy comes up.
Update 1 (December 1, 2022)
04:19 pm (IST): For those who haven’t received the Apple Music Replay 2022 yet, the official Apple troubleshooting might be of help:
If you still don’t see Replay, make sure that Use Listening History is turned on for all of your devices:
On your iPhone or iPad: Go to Settings > Music and turn on Use Listening History. On your Mac: In the Apple Music app, choose Music > Settings, click the General tab, then select Use Listening History. On your Android: At the top of the Apple Music app, tap the More button More button , tap Settings, then turn on Use Listening History.
Before you must make sure you have listened to enough hours of music. You can check your progress bar on the Replay site to see if you meet the listening time requirement.
Update 2 (December 2, 2022)
05:19 pm (IST): Some Apple Music users report that their Replay 2022 is throwing up inaccurate statistics about the music they listen to (1, 2, 3).
According to reports, the most listened songs of the affected users do not appear in the place that they should on the list. Also, for some users, songs that they have never heard are appearing.
My top song was Cold Heart at 22 listens but I listened to Stumpwork 107 times.
is someone in my account? what should i do?
I just looked at my replay and it’s showing me my top albums and top stations but i’ve never listened to them before and I don’t even know who the artists are.
Update 3 (December 8, 2022)
11:21 am (IST): Users who are getting wrong stats or no statistics at all could probably be because of the fact their ‘listening history’ is off. So all they have to do is turn it on in order to get the feature to work properly.
Check your listening history is on
