iOS may make amazing advancements but the Apple music app continues to be an embarassment compared to spotify.

Even basic things like supporting smart playlists is still not in native app - i have to create a smart playlist with rules on a mac, and then those rules transfer over to music app. Why? if mac os can support it year for more than a decade absolutely no reason why iOS app cannot support it.

Why must playlists stop at end of last song? Why not instead like spotify continue playing undiscovered songs at the end so i can discover more music? music discovery in general on music app is terrible.

Why is the content recommendations so bad even after so many years? in spite of loving the song and having enough data on me, why the fuck can’t you personalize music discovery according to my taste?

The only reason Apple music works is iOS / iphone entrenchment. Seriously.
