Apple has started rolling out the new “Chill Mix” in the For You section of Apple Music to more users. Mine showed up a few days ago.

I listen to a lot of ambient music on Apple Music, and some classical music, which would seem a lot more “chill” than the blues in the list. The Chill Mix is supposed to help me “relax and unwind”:
But I don’t see this as relaxing music.
Interestingly, every single song in my Chill Mix is blues; there’s nothing else, nothing from the vast range of music I listen to, just one genre. I guess it’s not really “Tailored to my musical taste.” Or I broke the Apple Music algorithm again.
