In iTunes (in Windows), it is possible to right-click a music playlist and select "Love". What does this do? What effect does it have? (Thankfully, it doesn't mark all the tracks in the playlist as Loved.)

The For You section of Apple Music, in the Music app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, in iTunes on your Mac or PC, or in the Apple Music app on your Android phone, is where you'll find suggestions from our experts who know and love music. Our recommendations are influenced by:

  • The music that you listen to from the Apple Music catalog.
  • What you tell us you love or dislike.
  • The genre and artist choices that you made when you first joined Apple Music.

    So, loving a playlist is the same as loving each individual track within it? – SabreWolfy Jul 24 '18 at 18:33

    I would assume that's correct but I don't know if Apple specifically equates the two scenarios on the back end. Everything I've read about this indicates that's how Apple uses the love/dislike buttons on playlists but I couldn't find anything from Apple directly that said those words. – fsb Jul 24 '18 at 18:44
