What does a Star mean in Apple Music, Star on Apple Music
Apple Music is one of the widely popular music streaming services out there and it has seen tremendous growth in recent years. The platform not only boasts an impressive 60 million songs library but it also offers various customization features which makes it a hot choice among avid listeners.
Apple has previously explained why a Star actually appears in Apple Music, however, that doesn’t seem to have satisfied the users. This is because the company has only offered a brief statement saying that these are simply hot tracks.
Ideally, a star icon is generally assigned to songs based on their performance. This essentially has to do with how popular the track is and if it is the most track from an album. Earlier, the company used to have star ratings for the tracks, where users also had the ability to rate their favourite songs. However, the star rating feature has been removed by Apple.
While the feature no longer exists, the new star icon helps users identify all the popular songs from the library. However, the company hasn’t provided any details on how many plays it actually takes for a track to earn the star symbol. The app also offers a dedicated section for users where they can discover the most played tracks on the app.
The service has been called ‘Apple Music for Artists’ and it gives users a detailed insight on the tracks including the total number of times they were played, along with other details such as purchases and average daily listeners.
