What counts as listening time on Apple Music

Apple Music is a streaming service that offers its users access to millions of songs. If you’re an Apple Music subscriber, you may be wondering how your listening time is calculated.

Listening time on Apple Music is counted when you:
-Stream a song from the Apple Music catalog
-Download a song from the Apple Music catalog for offline listening
-Listen to a Beats 1 show or podcast

Listening time is not counted when you:
-Play songs from your personal music library (i.e. songs that were not purchased from the iTunes Store or added to your music library using Apple Music)
-Listen to radio stations other than Beats 1 (e.g. NPR, ESPN, etc.)
-Watch music videos

If you want to see how many minutes you’ve spent listening to Apple Music, open the app and go to the “For You” tab. Scroll down to the “Apple Music Activity” section and you’ll see your listening time for the current day, week, and month.

How to reset your total listening time on Apple Music

2. Tap on “Music.”
3. Scroll down to the “History” section and tap on “Reset Statistics.”
4. Confirm that you want to reset your total listening time by tapping on “Reset” in the popup window.

After you’ve reset your statistics, the next time you open Apple Music, your total listening time will start from 0:00 again.

What to do if you’re not happy with your total listening time on Apple Music

If you’re not happy with your total listening time on Apple Music, there are a few things you can do to change it.

First, you can go to your settings and turn off ” Show Apple Music History.” This will prevent your total listening time from being tracked.

Second, you can try using a different music player. There are many great options out there, and some of them don’t track your listening time.

Finally, you can always just delete your Apple Music account altogether. This will obviously stop you from using the service, but it will also erase your entire listening history.

Tips for reducing your total listening time on Apple Music

Apple Music has a “Time Listening” feature that allows you to see how much time you’ve spent streaming music over the course of your membership. Here are some tips for reducing your total listening time on Apple Music:

-Instead of listening to music continuously, try listening to it in short burst. For example, listen to a song for 2-3 minutes and then take a break for a few minutes before starting the next song.

-times when you’re not actively listening to music, disable the “Show in History” setting for any stations or playlists that you’re subscribed to. This will prevent those stations/playlists from being counted towards your total listening time.

-manage your offline songs wisely. Download only the songs that you really want to listen to offline and delete any songs that you no longer need. This will help keep your offline library fresh and reduce the temptation to listen to music for long periods of time when you’re not connected to the Internet.

-try using one of Apple Music’s many family sharing features if you have multiple people in your household who want access to the service. This way, you can all share one subscription and keep track of your individual listening habits separately.

Conclusion

Unfortunately, there is no way to see how many minutes you have spent listening to Apple Music. This is likely because Apple does not want users to get too obsessed with the amount of time they are spending on the service. However, there are some third-party apps that allow you to track your usage, such as My Stats for Apple Music.
