How to Disable or Enable Autoplay in Apple Music?

When the autoplay is turned on, then Apple Music will keep playing even after it reaches the end of an album or playlist. Right after the last song on the list is done, Apple Music will automatically pick a song from the same genre you were listening to, and it will keep playing. This is good if you are someone who likes to discover new songs now and then. But some people don’t really like that.
