There is no doubt that Apple Music is a very popular music streaming service, but some subscribers are confused about how to find Apple Music playlists they've downloaded to the library.

"Only by clicking 'Add to Library' button, I can easily add plenty of Apple Music playlists and songs to my library, but I don't know how to find them? Anyone can help me?"

I believe that some of you may have also met the above question, how do you solve it? If you don't know either, then go ahead, here are two easy options for your reference. It's not very difficult to find the downloaded Apple Music playlists on Apple Music, just follow the steps shown as below.


Part 1. Two Easy Options for Finding Apple Music Playlists

There are two easy methods for finding Apple Music playlists or songs on Apple Music, you can select one of them in your preference.

Option 1: Change Categories to iCloud Status

Step 1. First launch iTunes and then log in to your account.

Step 2. Then click on "New" button and choose "Smart Playlist" option.

Step 3. Next find and click on "Apple Music Tunes" option. On the pop-up window, make sure "Match the following rule" option is checked and change the categories to "iCloud Status" "is" "Apple Music"

Step 4. Finally, tick "Live Updating" option and then Press "OK" button.

Change Categories to iCloud Status

After that, you'll find an automatically-updated playlist of any song from Apple Music library. But some friends may have iCloud Music Library opened but not iTunes Match, that means every tune in your library that's matched with an Apple Music catalog song will be winded up. If you want to solve this problem, then go to the option 2.

Option 2: Change Categories to Date Added

Option 2 is a little different from the option 1, it will add all recently downloaded songs to your library whether the downloaded songs are from Apple Music or otherwise.

Step 1. First launch iTunes and then log in to your account.

Step 2. Then click on "New" button and choose "Smart Playlist" option.

Step 3. Also click on "Apple Music Tunes" button to go to the "Apple Music Tunes" pop-up window. Then change the categories to "Date Added" "is after" "6/29/2015".

Step 4. At last, tick "Live Updating" option and press "OK" button.

Change Categories to Data Added

Please note that Apple Music is launched on 6/29/2015, so that enter the date of "6/29/2015" means you can collect all Apple Music songs you've downloaded since you launched Apple Music.
