Say you’re listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. With a few clicks, the Genius feature finds the songs in your library that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you. You can listen to the playlist straightaway, save it for later or even refresh it and give it another go. Count on Genius to create a mix you wouldn’t have thought of yourself.
