    Does anyone know how Genius works? It's amazing. It would take me hours to generate the intuitive playlists that it spits out in a split second.

    By the way - I'm new here. Greetings to all.

    Yes, the fact that some "Genius"'s at Apple can match songs with other songs that have the same genre is absolutely amazing.

    I don't think it uses genres to generate the playlists. Most of my files are not tagged with genres.

    Seriuoslly if you google it you will get a pretty good answer. Apple hasn't let all the secrets out of the bag. The longer people upload there info the the Genius cloud with their music libraries, playlists, etc, the better it will get.

    it basically takes what people listen to in succession from everyone who uses it and generates the averages on what people listen to along with that song. and then they add in certain variables like genre and year. but basically its which songs you listen to after another, averaged in with everyone else who listens to that song as well.

    How i see it is, it determines the beats per minute within that song and then searches for songs within that same rang and generates a list for you.

    That is how i see it
