Apple's streaming music service, Apple Music, is no stranger to custom-generated playlists: It launched two alongside iOS 10, My Favorites and My New Music. With iOS 11, Apple looks to be adding a new sound to the mix: Chill.
What is the My Chill Mix playlist?
Like its two predecessors, the Chill Mix will take into account personal music tastes from both your Library and recent listens; it combines that information with recommendations at large from Apple Music's editors to create a playlist designed for your specific level of chill.
As Matt Panzarino of TechCrunch notes:
As a result, everyone's Chill Mix should be slightly different, save for length — as with Favorites and New Music, Apple delivers 25 new songs each week. (For Chill, that delivery date is on Sunday.)
How can I get access to My Chill Mix?
Apple is currently rolling out My Chill Mix to a small group of subscribers on Sundays, with more being added each week. There's no official way to hop on the Chill train unless Apple selects your account, so if you don't have the playlist in your For You section yet, be patient.
In the meantime, you're welcome to groove along to my Chill Mix:

How can I check to see if I have My Chill Mix?
Your account is currently eligible for My Chill Mix if you're a paid Apple Music subscriber and on iOS 10/macOS Sierra or later.
- Open the Music or iTunes app.
- Navigate to For You.
- If you have My Chill Mix, you'll find it at the top of the screen, in between My Favorites and My New Music Mix.
