I tried to create a smart playlist with "Loved" criteria = true, but this smart playlist will only include the loved songs from my library.

  1. Is there a way to include also the loved songs from Apple Music that are not in my library?

  2. Is there any other way to collect all the loved songs from all my devices into one playlist/album/whatever?

I don't know why Apple makes this so complicated?!

There is no way to achieve the Loved smart playlist without adding the song first to your library from my testing.

I have just given a song Love on Apple Music and it did not appear in my smart playlist until I added it to my library. Even if it was added to a playlist but not actually to My Music it would not appear.

  1. No
  2. No

Apple Music—for some unexplainable reason—does not enable you to make a playlist of your loved songs. It's a questionable omission, and an easy one to avoid for them, but no, you can not set up a playlist of only loved songs. Instead, just add them to a playlist manually.

  • Simply stupid if you ask me... So many songs, such a poor UI and poor discovery/playlist options. Jul 14, 2016 at 12:28
