I started my 3 month Apple Music trial today and am shocked (shocked!) to find out that I cannot create playlists unless I enable iCloud Music Library. I’ve deliberately kept off from enabling it as I don’t want it to mess up my library, which I spent an unhealthy amount of time many years ago carefully tagging. I can’t believe that there is no way to create online Apple Music only playlists. Howe can this be?! Am I overlooking something?
If I remember correctly, @MacSparky mentioned recently in the Revisiting Music Management episode that he too keeps the iCloud Music Library option disabled and iTunes expert Kirk McElhearn recommends doing so too. How is it possible to use a service though if one can’t create playlists?
