At long last, you can search for songs within a playlist in Apple Music. Until now, if you had long Apple Music playlists on your iPhone, you couldn’t use the search bar to find a specific song, making it difficult to quickly find the song you really wanted to listen to. It may be overdue, but Apple has finally added the ability to do so to the Music app on both iPhone and iPad.

Though Apple has actually let you search for songs in playlists on Mac for a while, it doesn’t work quite as it does on iOS and iPadOS. We’ll discuss the differences below.

How to search for songs in a playlist in Apple Music for iPhone and iPad

To get this new feature, update your iPhone or iPad to iOS 15.2 or iPadOS 15.2, respectively. Once you have installed iOS 15.2, open the Music app and go to any Apple Music playlist (to locate them, tap the Listen Now tab at the bottom of the screen and select any playlist).

Now, swipe downwards to reveal the search bar. Type in the song or artists you’re looking for. Boom: Your 1,000-song playlists suddenly feels less chaotic.

If you can’t update to iOS 15.2 because your device is too old, you can still search within playlists in Apple Music on your iOS devices. To do this, you’ll have to use a third-party app. Cs: Music Player ($2.99) is the one we’d been using until iOS 15.2 came along, and it’s the one you should try too.

When you fire up Cs: Music Player for the first time, it’ll ask for access to Apple Music. When you’ve done that, tap the Playlists tab at the bottom of the screen, open your favorite playlist, and use the search bar labeled Search Playlist Songs to find the song you need. This search bar is located between the album art and the first song in the playlist.

Cs: Music Player works perfectly well as an Apple Music player for music …….

Google AI Tool Creates Music from Written Descriptions – VOA Learning English

This week, Google researchers published a paper describing results from an artificial intelligence (AI) tool built to create music.

The tool, called MusicLM, is not the first AI music tool to launch. But the examples Google provides demonstrate musical creative ability based on a limited set of descriptive words.

AI shows how complex computer systems have been trained to behave in human-like ways.

Tools like ChatGPT can quickly produce, or generate, written documents that compare well with the work by humans. ChatGPT and similar systems require powerful computers to operate complex machine-learning models. The San Francisco-based company OpenAI launched ChatGPT late…….


Bringing music to the masses… on a tram – BBC

French pianists, Hervé Billaut and Guillaume Coppola, brought a piano on to a tram in Nantes, as part of the opening of the annual La Folle Journée classical music festival.

They played to passengers all afternoon on Wednesday.

Mr Billaut said that they wanted to bring music to places you don’t expect it: “Perhaps someone, a child, a young person or a pensioner will have a musical shock.”
