Apple Music is one of the world’s most popular music streaming platforms thanks to its high-fidelity audio, extensive library, and integration with all Apple devices. The app was recently introduced for Android users as well and boasts tons of features. You can favorite music and add songs you like to a particular playlist on the platform, which will then show up in your playlists, favorite songs, and overall Apple Music Library.
However, many users like to keep their song libraries separate from their favorite songs. Many also don’t want songs from a particular playlist to show up in their song library. Thankfully, Apple has heard these grievances, and two new settings toggles now allow you to disable this feature. Let’s take a look at how you can stop songs you favorite and add to playlists from showing up in your library in Apple Music.
