See the history of everything you've heard on Apple Music

Last May, we talked about Apple's new page focused on data and privacy, where company customers can request and download information regarding their Apple ID (such as application usage, calendars, reminders, iCloud documents, Apple play history Music, among others).

By default, Apple makes the data requested by the user available in a ZIP file containing several documents in JSON, CSV, XML and PDF formats. To view the downloaded information, more specifically in the case of the Apple Music playback history, the Australian developer Pat Murray created a very interesting page, able to display your year of using the service streaming musical.

To use the tool, you will first need to request your information on that Apple page. See how:

  1. Click on ?Request a copy of your data?.

    Request, correct data or disable Apple ID

  2. Select the data you want to download. In the case of the Apple Music history, select the option ?Information about Apple media services?.

    Select Apple ID privacy data

  3. Click "Continue" and then select the maximum file size you are going to download.
  4. Finally, click on ?Complete request?.

You will receive an email informing you that the data has been requested and within seven days they will be available for download. To check the progress of the request, simply access the page again.

CSV file with Apple Music data

As we said, the data will be made available for download from a ZIP document; download it and unzip the file App_Store_iTunes_Store_iBooks_Store_Apple_Music. Then just browse to the / Apple Music Activity / folder and search for the Apple Music Play Activity.csv document.

Now go to the Apple Music Analyzer page and upload the CSV file. After that, you will see a complete summary of the most played albums, artists and songs on Apple Music, including playing time and other much more specific information, such as the ?reasons for a song to end? and the ranking of most played songs through of the years.

For anyone who has already been a user of the site, for example, see that the tool created by Murray explores and allows viewing specific information about his musical habit.

It is a pity that Ma does not have an equivalent official service. In this sense, some of its rivals are already in charge of the company and offer at least some way for the user to view the personalized reproduction history. O Spotify, for example, creates a kind of website at the end of each year with the reproduction details of each user, including the songs, artists and genres most played in that period.
