That means if you have chosen the right Apple Music preferences, then you will find the tracks that fit you taste show up on 'For You' section.


There are up to four various mixes that refresh weekly: Chill Mix, Favorites, Friends Mix and New Music Mix. But for those who just joined Apple Music, you won't see any mixes as Apple Music doesn't understand what you like at that time.
