After selecting it, you need to scroll down and choose the option you prefer.
Options include: playing what is already playing on iPhone if it is already playing a song; quick play - which automatically assembles a playlist if you are an Apple Music subscriber - access Beats 1 and Apple's 24-hour international radio. You can also select songs on Apple Watch in the music app itself, as well as play your playlists created on iPhone.
