Genius mixes for iOS?

Asked: Jul 31 2018 | 6:34 pm EDT 5821 Views 4 Answers View Best Answer

Is it not possible to create a genius mix playlist from your iPhone? I like how iTunes has pre-made genius mixes. Can this be done on iPhone?

I’ve attached a screenshot. In iTunes for Mac there’s a playlist called “Genius Mixes”. But they don’t show up in Apple Music on my phone..?https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...9764dd6ac7.jpg
To my best knowledge, genius playlists is a feature of the pre-Music era in iTunes. It was build to play music that was similar to the song you created it from.
With Music Apple introduced curated and public playlists, essentially making Genius Mixes obsolete. Apple just hasn’t pulled the plug to disable Genius Mixes in iTunes yet.

Wouldn't a Genius playlist be one created by Apple employees and shared to all? Pretty sure you CAN create your own, but they won't be Genius playlists unless you start working for Apple.

Bummer. I like having iTunes create those mixes automatically.
