It’s easy to find and follow people in the Apple Music app — whether it’s friends, family, or coworkers.

While Apple Music used to allow users to follow artists as well, it removed the feature in 2018. However, you can still follow friends to see what others are listening to — similar to Spotify.

To do so, you’ll just have to set up an account. If you’ve already done so, you can easily add people by accessing your account details in the “For You” tab at any time.

Here’s how to follow people on Apple Music on your mobile app.
