OK. I am all too familiar with Apple Music giving me issues with greyed out songs, but I wanted to do something in my apple account and it seems to have reverted to iTunes. What did I do wrong? Is it just a glitch and maybe when I try to use it later today (it's just after midnight my time) it should be better. I don't remember accidentally setting something that I should have.

Thank you for your help. :)
Without seeing a screenshot it will be hard to figure out :)

Does anyone know if Mac OS 10.14.6 public beta 3 has been released?

I have public beta 2 installed on my iMac. When I looking for a new beta version, public beta 1 of Mac OS Catalina will show up.

I'm not interested in Catalina right now because I have some 32-bit apps that doesn't work that OS.
Still no public beta 3? anyone knows when the finale release will be?

I think it might be trying to do something, it seems different......
You might try signing out of iCloud then sign back in I know it is a bug but if you do make sure you check keep a back up if it appears

Is iCloud syncing still an issue for you all? I still can't get into my Apple Music playlist. I've reported it a few days ago, I just wish I could talk to someone eiter over the phone or on an apple beta development website since the great people at Apple couldn't help me. (I tried to contact them from the Apple website a few days ago, and she couldn't help me since I was using BETA.)

This is a beta but glad your music app is working some are still having issues
Funny thing is, I had it working earlier this evening and was redownloading from the cloud, when came back about 10:30 my time, I couldn't get in and as I type this, I can't even get onto the Music app.

No, just my 6s.
I was just thinking about this, but is there a site that Apple has that the people using the BETA software could check if certain apps were down that the people designing the BETA know about?

I haven't found one yet but I think that's why they the feedback app installed when you enroll your Mac I think its in the applications -utilities folder and this forum under apps broken-not working thread

I think I am thinking of something different.... It's been awhile since I saw this site that had a list of apple related apps that had red or green dots next to them..... Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Is bluetooth dropping a weather thing or a BETA issue. I am listening to the Chicago Cubs/San Fransisco Giants game, and it keeps dropping. I am also listing to the game on tunein.com. That has it's own issues, but the game still goes on. The bluetooth dropping is strange. Is this BETA-related or not? Should I wait it out and see if it still happens after the official release of the OS?

As of ten 'til nine my time (roughly), I have my Apple Music library and playlists back but I have to download them from the cloud again, should I wait until the official copy of the OS is out before I download my music library and playlists from the cloud?

my advice is download them and make sure you still have a copy in the iCloud:)
Good thing I didn't.... Right now I can't even get in. It's stuck on the "Loading cloud music library" window.

As of 11 'til 6 my time, Apple Music is back up. However, I have multiple copies of song files, how do I get rid of the multiple files. I think I will wait until the official release of Catalina to download from the cloud again. If I am wrong in assuming this, please let me know and I'll just start the cloud download tonight so it can run while I'm asleep and nothing else will be running.

This all must be frustrating — and because it’s a beta there is uncertainty about what comes next. Well, fortunately it isn’t going to be that long now until we do get the official, complete version of Catalina. You beta folks will see the Golden Master and then it won’t be too long after that when it is released to all of us out here. I am thinking that because there are so many significant changes in a number of areas that this is going to be one upgrade I hold off a little on until I am really sure that everything is working smoothly and as it should be. Also I’m going to have my iTunes library backed up nine ways to Sunday, too, before I venture into downloading and installing Catalina! Right now I don’t use Apple Music (the subscription service) and I also don’t have my music in iCloud; it’s all local and on my Macs and iOS devices so I know where it is and that I can find any particular song or album and play it at any time. I am concerned about the possibility of losing something along the way with the transition from iTunes to the separate Apple Music app, but I think in the long run that this will be much better and I am looking forward to having separate apps for music, movies, etc. That has been a long time in coming. I’m just a bit nervous about the initial implementation of it all.....

Yeah, the being usable for x ammount of time then down a few hours later isn't fun....
