Trade up and save:Get $450 towards an iPhone 11

    I have an apple music subscription and listen to music on my iPhone 6.

    I don't have any music downloaded, I generally call up the control screen and just hit PLAY on the music section and it starts streaming. I have never understood how it selects what it plays, but it is usually a mix of music I have listened to in the past a with odd ball tracks thrown in.

    Yesterday I hit play and it started playing what sounded like a podcast, with an interview going on. It was really interesting, but when I went back to it today, I could not see how to resume playing it - the music app just started picking random tracks again.

    I have looked in For You > Recently Played but cannot see it in there. In a web browser you can easily call up your browsing history, YouTube will show you your exact watch history, but the same does not seem true in iOS?

    How on earth can I find this mystery track/podcast I was played? I really want to finish listening to it!

    Thanks for any advice!

    If it's not on a playlist, I don't think there is a way, but I could be wrong.

    Ok, its as much frustrating as I do not understand how Apple Music came to select that podcast, as it is not being able to find it.

    I might have to track down all podcasts in the genre and check them all one by one to find it :o(

    Music, in my opinion, needs a simpler GUI. Options for lyrics, Up Next, Previously Played, etcetera need to be readily available and visible on the main screen.

    Couldn’t agree more.
    The way playlists are listed need an overhaul to, IMO.

    Maybe I am going about this the wrong way.

    What I need to understand it how iOS is selecting the music it plays me when I hit PLAY in the music app or control centre - when there is no music downloaded on the phone. What SOURCE is it using to play random tunes - that apparently includes podcasts?

    If i can figure that out, that's where I need to look.

    When I hit play it plays something from my library. Not something from Apple Music and certainly no podcasts.

    Perhaps the podcast you heard was already in your library.

    Thanks for the tip. I just looked on my iphone library and there are about 20 albums listed, but nothing like a podcast.

    Thanks anyway.
