Apple Music, a Music Streaming Service at $9.99 per month announced at WWDC 2015



Apple Music

Apple couldn’t keep itself away from something that has been very popular recently. The Cupertino giant has just unveiled a new service, Apple Music, that would be its music streaming service, of course a paid one, to give the users an access to unlimited music. This is going to take on Pandora and Spotify, one of the most popular in this category, and although this might not serve as a hugely different service, something coming from Apple will always be in the limelight.

“We’ve had a long relationship with music, and music has had a rich history of change, some of which we’ve played a part in.” – Tim Cook.

According to Apple, Apple Music provides all artists, even the kids in their bedrooms, a way to engage with their audience. It is a revolutionary music service, curated by music experts.

The Apple Music has a 24×7 live global radio broadcasted from three cities, and that isn’t based on some machines or research giving you the songs, but programmed by people. The cities from where it will be broadcasted – LA, New York, and London.

My Music is where users can get access to Apple Music. All the playlists that were on iTunes, will be shown here. A new “For You” feature is included with playlists based on the music frequently played in the device, and recommendations are given by other users.

One major feature – Unsigned artists can share their music on Apple Music, too. So music lovers and the entire music industry can hear it. Latest tracks, behind-the-scenes photos, in-progress lyrics, or a new remix can be posted by artists any time, and the end users can comment on them.

The user can reorder and choose the next song in an album or playlist. Or skip the next track altogether. Based on what user suggests as his favorites, Apple Music recommends and shows handpicked music.

Videos: The Apple Music app isn’t limited to just Audio, because according to the website and the demo, the service includes tens of thousands of music videos with no ads.

Apple Music Price and Availability

The Apple Music service will be available from June 30th, and it will cost $9.99 per month, and $14.99 per month for a family plan (includes six members). Interestingly, Apple Music for Android and Windows will be coming this fall, and that will be Apple’s first application made for Android (it seems). The service will be free for the first three months.

This will be available for iOS 8.4 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. And even if you’re not a member, you can still use Apple Music to follow your favorite artists and listen to Beats 1 for free.

Apple also announced the iOS 9, with a few incremental upgrades from the iOS 8, and also WatchOS 2 update with native apps support.
