The third and final tab, Activity, provides you with a combined overview of your listening history, anything in your queue, and any downloads you have going. This whole redesign is a welcomed one, and with the current coronavirus pandemic, the release on iOS is certainly timely for those looking to listen to their favorite personalities while working from home.
