From the home page I select a playlist. From the selected playlist I have 3 options, shuffle, add to library and 3 dots(start radio). Can someone describe the start radio function as it plays music other than the playlist.

A radio is like a personalized playlist that the platform creates for you based on the music you like or, as in this case, with similar types of songs of the playlist you're listening to.
