If you're a new Apple Music subscriber, or you're otherwise unfamiliar with the platform, it can be somewhat confusing to navigate. Even simple tasks like finding playlists may seem difficult. But finding mixes for that annual spring clean or daily workout doesn't have to be hard.

In addition to using the search function, you can also browse featured playlists in the "For You" tab in the app's bottom menu. Friends and family can also send you playlists. Finding playlists and adding them to your library yourself is easiest when you're already logged in to your Apple Music account using your Apple ID.

Here's how to discover a library of playlists available to download and listen to on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer's Apple Music app.
