I have attempted to recreate smart playlist functionality by using the ios shortcuts app.

I have created a shortcut with 2 steps

  • Find All Music
    • filters set to find specific songs
    • Get 25 Music Items
  • Create playlist playlist name with Music

If I preview the shortcut, I see that songs are selected as I hoped.

When I open my music library, I see a playlist named playlist name, but the songs are not present in the playlist.

Does anyone have a workaround for this issue?

I presume that this is a bug in ios shortcuts or in Apple Music. What is the best way to report this type of bug?
