How to properly use “Likes” in Apple Music

First, let me tell you one of my big prob­lems, or sources of con­fu­sion, with likes on stream­ing ser­vices. Let’s say I’m lis­ten­ing to a Met­al sta­tion and a great song comes on, but I con­sid­er it to be Rock. Do I like it? I enjoy the song, but I’m afraid if I like it, more Rock songs will come on the Met­al sta­tion, dilut­ing it.

If, like me, you’ve been try­ing to suss out what the heart does in the new Apple Music, this piece from Jim Dal­rym­ple might just help. Although I still can’t suss why the heart does­n’t change state when a new song comes on when lis­ten­ing to Beats1.
