SongShift Lets You Transfer Apple Music Playlists to Other Services

· · Cool Stuff Found

There’s an app called SongShift that lets you transfer Apple Music playlists to other services. Supported services include Apple Music, Deezer, Discogs, HypeMachine, LastFM, Napster, Pandora, Spotify, Tidal, and YouTube. You can “shift” complete playlists from one streaming service to another, and automatically keep all of your playlists synced with each other. I’ve heard some Apple customers say that when they unsubscribe from Apple Music, then re-subscribe later on, none of their playlists and content is saved. I’ve never unsubscribed yet so I haven’t run into this issue, but it sounds like SongShift can help in these cases. App Store: SongShift – Free

Want an Apple Music Web Player? Try This

· · Cool Stuff Found

Ever since Apple Music first came out, people have been clamoring for an Apple Music web player. Recently, Apple has opened an Apple Music API for developers. Although Apple hasn’t created an official Apple Music web player, Redditor u/zseguin has come to the rescue. It’s still in early development, but the code is available on GitHub. All you have to do to get started is sign in with your Apple ID, and allow the app to connect to your account. Everything is available. Not only can you find your own music, but even Apple Music recommendations in the For You section. However, note that the player is built on an API that is currently in beta. The application may stop working at any time.

Create a Universal Music Playlist With Soundsgood

· · Cool Stuff Found

Soundsgood is a platform that lets you create a universal music playlist. You can sync your playlists across Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music, Deezer, and more. You can also create an online music player and share it with people. You’ll get a Stats Dashboard so you can see how many people play songs and follow your playlists. I haven’t tried it out yet but I plan to try the service soon. The company markets it as a social player to “get more followers” but I think the cross-platform universality is far more interesting. There also appears to be an iOS app as well.

How to Correct Siri’s Music Choices

· · Quick Tip

Hey Siri

OK, so Siri isn’t always great at answering follow-up questions. (And if you talk to Apple’s voice assistant a lot, you’ve probably used colorful language at it because of that very thing.) But fortunately, it does parse follow-up requests well for music, so you can correct it when it chooses the wrong item to play. We’ll tell you how to do that in today’s Quick Tip!

Apple Music's Carpool Karaoke Teases Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner

· · Cool Stuff Found

Apple is teasing a new episode of Carpool Karaoke on June 15th, and the trailer’s out. It features Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, and Jeremy Renner, and it looks pretty funny. The three are starring in a new comedy called TAG, which debuts the same day as this episode of Carpool Karaoke will be released, June 15th. That’s this Friday, and I can’t wait to see if season 2 of Carpool Karaoke is better than season 1. Judging by this trailer, that might be a big yes. The episode will be available on Apple Music when it’s released.

Ask Siri to play the top song from a given date

“A Horse with No Name,” by America was the #1 song on April 3rd, 1972—I know this because I randomly picked that date to test this tip: ask Siri to play the top song from any given date, and you can be as specific as you want. [Updated to note that it requires an Apple Music subscription.]
