How to stream

Based on my personal research, erasing your playlist or not doesn’t affect anything. You can keep your playlist as long as you stream the title song once every hour (ex. You streamed at 4:15 so your next stream should be at 5:15).

REMINDER: Stream title song once every hour.

How to check/verify your stream/s
  • Go to “마이

GENIESTREAMCHECK

  • Then, select “많이 들은곡

geniecheck2

 

  • Here you can check if your stream has counted and was done correctly.
  • This “총 53회 감상” tells you the number of streams. In my case, it says: “Total 53 streams”
