Apple has come up with its own music app at Worldwide Developers Conference. It was expected that it would be a huge competition for the Spotify. Now it is available for download with the help of iOS 8.4 update over smartphones. Apple has made it available for desktops also which include both Mac and Windows. Now with the introduction of Apple Music, apart from 30 million tracks that is available in iTunes, users are allowed to avail the service of Beats 1, which is Apple’s 24*7 internet radio station. It will be functioned by St. Vincent, Zane Lowe, Drake and others.
The services of Apple Music are free of cost for the initial 3 months. After that users are required to pay a monthly subscription of $9.99. Another option available is that you can avail the services for just $14.99 per month, if you opt the services as a family pack. The family package worth of $14.99 can be utilized by 6 members. So it is advisable to have a family pack of $14.99 instead of individually paying $9.99.
The app looks similar to Beats Music, where you can provide your suggestions along with your preferences. These are provided along with the curated playlists based on your preferences like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and so on. Another feature called the Connect, which will enable the emerging artists to interact with their followers. This feature will permit these artists to share their pictures, videos, tracks and messages with their fans. Also these fans are allowed to share those pictures, videos and so on through social media networks like Facebook or Twitter and so on.
With the download of Apple Music, now you can enjoy all the tracks in Apple Music as well as in iTunes. Specifically saying, the users are allowed to access all the tracks that they have purchased in iTunes from the new music app of Apple. This ultimately gives you the opportunity to bring together the music tracks that you have already bought and what you browse, and you can easily play it. The above option is available with an additional option of offline playback.
We are expecting some more exciting features. But for the time being, be thankful for the iOS update or new version of 12.2 or later from iTunes. As I mentioned earlier, this all comes with an automatically opted subscription of $9.99 after three months of availing the service. But you are allowed to disable auto renewal in Apple Music Settings Menu and remain separated from the monthly subscription scheme.
