Apple Music Features
The Cupertino-based ginat’s long awaiting music streaming has finally been announced on stage at WWDC 2015 keynote in San Fransisco. Aptly called Apple Music, and it’s a good indication that the firm is making good use of its acquired Beats Electronics in which the Beats Music streaming service was part of the deal.
Apple clarifies: “Apple Music is a revolutionary music service, a 24/7 global radio, and a new way to connect with artists.” It’s time you dive a little deeper to give you a glimpse of what actually Apple Music really is about.
Apple Music is not all about everything new, it also features a revamped iTunes library, which means all those tunes which you’ve favorite – and own – over the years will be up for listening at a moment’s notice. Option there to stream your iTunes tracks, or you can download them for offline listening.
In Apple Music library, there is almost 1 to 1 copy of iTunes, expect for a few expectations when it comes to artists, such as The Beatles. So that you can keep on listening to your music stored and you’ll never ever run out of stuff to listen to. Ultimately.
Coming back to the ‘music experts‘ but we are talking about the ealier, Apple says: “Get recommendations for albums and playlists you’ll love from experts — real people who know and love music.” Slightly off track choose your music for you, Apple is all set taking a more hands-on and professional appraoch in this equation.
Wondering about; is Apple Music all about streaming music with no radio in sight? No, it isn’t. According to Apple, its new service comes integrated with what they’re calling a “groundbreaking 24/7 global radio station,” which imminently broadcasts non-stop music t 100 countries directly from LA, New York and London.
You’ll be pleased to know that Apple Music comes bundled with ‘Beats 1′ which will be hosted by the world’s “best voices” such as Zane Lowe. Apple Music gives artists a brilliant hub of their own through which they can ‘Connect’ with their fans. Artists can “post their latest tracks, behind-the-scenes photos, in-progress lyrics, or a new remix.”
Music video fans has a good news and that is; Apple Music hosts ‘ten of thousands‘ of music videos, which is too without a single ad in them. Ad-free!
Now that Apple Music also integrates with Siri, so that your songs or genres are just a voice command away. Unlike Beats Music, Apple Music will live in iTunes on the desktop. Bet you haven’t seen anything like this anywhere else before, right?
Apple Music will be available on June 30 in 100 countries, and wil work on iPhones, iPads, iPod touches and Macs. For iOS devices, it will be a part of the iOS 8.4 update, due to release on the same date of June 2015.
Windows and Android users get the flavor of the musical action too, and they’ll be able to drive into the Apple Music this fall.
Subscription for Apple Music will cost $9.99 a month for individual users, and Apple is throwing in a family plan too, in which 6 people can share one single Apple Music account for just $14.99.
Before you go and get paid for Apple Music, it will be free for the first three-months to decide whether or not they’re gonna stick with Apple’s brand new service.
Update: Apple Music will be supported by the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and PC while Apple says that Apple TV and Android support will arrive in Fall. Initial launch on 30th of June. Windows version of the Apple Music app tells you all you need to know about the service or not. The decision to make Apple Music cross-platform may come from its Beats Music roots. You will be able to move your existing Beats Music subscription over to Apple Music.
