Create a Smart Playlist in Music on Mac
Music can create playlists based on rules you specify, and then update these playlists automatically as your library changes.
For example, you could create a Smart Playlist that includes your most highly rated jazz songs and that’s no larger than 4 gigabytes (GB) in size (so you could burn it to a 5GB USB drive for your car). When you import a new CD with jazz songs, the songs are added automatically to the Smart Playlist.
Smart Playlists you create have this icon next to them.
Create a Smart Playlist
In the Music app on your Mac, choose File > New > Smart Playlist.
Specify your rules.
To add another set of rules within a rule, hold down the Option key, then click the Nest button . (When you hold down the Option key, the Add button changes to the Nest button .)
View and edit Smart Playlists
In the Music app on your Mac, select a Smart Playlist in the sidebar on the left.
Do any of the following:
Change a Smart Playlist: Click Edit Rules.
Change the order of songs: Choose View > Sort By.
Remove a Smart Playlist: Press the Delete key.
