Note: Music controls are currently only available to our iOS users.
Tapping the "Music" icon before you begin tracking a workout on the Start Workout screen will give the ability to select a Playlist, Artist, or Album. There are also a few music options here, including shuffle, repeat, and autoplay. These controls are only compatible with the default music app on the iPhone for the time being, so you will only be able to control media that is synced or downloaded from your Apple Music library.
Once recording an activity, music controls will appear above the on-screen map.
You can use other audio apps such as Spotify or Pandora to listen as well, but this method will remain uncontrollable directly in the app until our developers are able to implement more listening options and configure the music player. To prevent these other music sources from pausing automatically upon recording an activity, turn off the autoplay, shuffle, and repeat options mentioned above.
To save and view the playlist you listened to during a workout, you must have:
- The music you listened to during your workout must be stored locally on your iPhone (not streamed)
- You must have used the Apple Music app to listen to music, not another app like Spotify, Pandora, etc.
If you use the music player controls at the top of the MapMy app and the music is stored locally, a playlist should be created for your workout.
