Apple Music is also launching a redesigned version of its Replay feature, Apple's answer to Spotify's Wrapped playlist, which provides users with real-time data on their listening habits.
"When we first launched Replay, the feature became an instant fan favorite on Apple Music, and we really wanted to develop the experience further and make it even more special, personal, and unique for subscribers," said Oliver Schusser, vice president of Apple Music and Beats.
Apple noted that, unlike Spotify, users' listening data will not be shared with third parties.
"Despite the emphasis on data, Replay maintains Apple's standard privacy throughout the experience," the company wrote in a blog post about the feature. "An individual user's insights are never shared, sold, or used in any marketing materials."
However, users can share their Replay data at their discretion. The company said Replay insights are optimized for sharing on social media and messaging channels.
Speaking of Spotify, the service has yet to release its 2022 Wrapped round-up, though it's expected to drop soon.
Pandora released its top tracks on Tuesday as well, and Wait For U by Future and featuring Drake and Tems was its top track.
