How to Add Friends on Apple Music?

A common question among Apple Music users is how to add friends on the platform. While the process may not be immediately obvious, it is indeed possible to connect with friends and discover new music together. Let's explore how to do it.

To get started, go to your profile in the top right corner of the Apple Music app. This will take you to your account settings. Here, you'll find an option called "Find Friends." To activate this feature, you'll need to grant Apple Music access to your contacts on your iPhone. Once enabled, Apple Music will periodically check your contacts to recommend new friends.

Next, tap on your profile, which may be a bit challenging to locate at first. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, where you'll see an option that says "Follow More Friends." By clicking on this, you'll be able to find contacts who are also on Apple Music. The number of contacts you'll find here depends on the extent of your iPhone contact book.

When browsing through the suggestions, you may notice different categories, such as contacts on Apple Music who are sharing their music and contacts who have Apple Music but are not sharing any music. You can choose to follow any of these contacts, or you can invite them to follow you by clicking on the "Invite" button.

Adding friends on Apple Music can be a bit complicated. It requires you to have a substantial number of contacts in your iPhone contact book. To find and add friends, you'll need to include their phone number or Apple ID, which they use for Apple Music, in your contact book. Once added, they will appear in your suggested list of friends on Apple Music.

Unfortunately, Apple Music does not currently offer the ability to search for friends by username. However, you can ask your friends to share their profiles with you or send you a link to their profiles, which you can then follow.

If you want to increase your visibility and have more friends discover your profile, you can go to "Edit Profile" and enable the "Everyone" option under "Who Can Follow Your Activity." By doing this, you will appear more often in the suggested friend list. Additionally, you can share what you listen to on your profile, similar to how it works on Spotify.

While adding friends on Apple Music may not be as straightforward as some users would prefer, it is possible to connect and discover music together. Hopefully, Apple will consider adding more user-friendly features to enhance the social aspects of their music streaming platform in the future.
