Apple Music’s Discovery Station – A New Algorithmic Discovery Option

  • Apple Music users have a new personal radio station called Discovery Station.
  • The Discovery Station is an algorithmically-generated station built to play music the user hasn’t heard but may like.
  • The station was discovered without any official announcement or popup.
  • The Discovery Station appears under the “Listen Now” tab in the category “Stations for You.”

Apple Music users have a new discovery option to find new music – the Discovery Station. The station is an algorithmically-generated station built to play music the user hasn’t heard, but may like, and was discovered without any official announcement or popup.

The Discovery Station appears under the “Listen Now” tab in the category “Stations for You.” It functions like the New Music Mix playlist but can play continuously. Apple Music offers very few easy discovery options, so this station may help bridge the gap between the algorithmic suggestions of Spotify and Apple Music.

The station was discovered due to a small change to the Personal Station. The artwork for the Personal Station changed from a basic red play button to an animated red arrow pointing to the right. This curious change led users to believe that something else must have been updated, and thus, the Discovery Station was discovered.

We can only guess how the Discovery Station functions without any documentation or explanation. It appears to be an algorithmically-generated station built on play history, likes, and other factors in the Apple Music algorithm. While Siri is not yet aware of the station, there is a direct link available to access it.

We will have to test the Discovery Station to determine its efficacy at finding music we’re willing to add to our library. Apple may not officially announce this new station but may instead mention it in update notes in a future iOS release.
