Everyone can add! One of the best features of iOS 17 is in development and is now ready to use.
IOS 17 has already been installed on most compatible Apple devices for some time. Even if It’s been some time since its official release
If you have CarPlay, you’ve probably already seen that this is possible.. It is undoubtedly a great idea for long trips and with friends. But if you have any doubts, below we’ll explain how they work and why you should activate them now. Ready?
How do Apple Music shared lists work?
The new version of iOS 17 brings an important change for CarPlay users– SharePlay integration with Apple Music. This innovative feature allows anyone in the vehicle to control and contribute to the playlist in Apple Music, rather than relying on just one person.
We recently had the opportunity to test shared playlists for Apple Music in iOS 17. This is an entertaining feature that will give a new style to our road trips.
The method to activate SharePlay in CarPlay is quite intuitive. On the current Apple Music playback screen, there is a new SharePlay symbol in the upper right corner. Tapping this icon generates a QR code that other passengers can scan. After scanning the QR code, a notification appears asking to join the SharePlay session.
Once you have approved this request, the person who joined can take control of the music on Apple Music. What is interesting is that this function is operational even if the other user does not have an Apple Music subscription (a great opportunity).
We were able to verify that the reading and scanning of the QR code is done quickly
Actually, This function is not limited to people inside the car (although that is its main function, come on). Some users tried to share their QR with other users thousands of miles away. The only thing you need is internet and a constant connection, but we highly recommend doing it right in the car for the main purpose: fun.
Without a doubt, shared lists on Apple Music will be a nice feature, especially since 60% of iPhones already have iOS 17, so lChances of finding a friend to share and a DJ along the way are reduced. This feature also promises that it will be updated to add more fun things.
