Today we’re going to be taking a look and getting a hands on with Apple music which is Apple’s newest music service that came with the latest iOS 8.4 update.
First, you’ll notice that the music app icon has been updated and this is where you will find Apple music alongside your music that you have stored in your library, so when launching the music app for the first time, we are presented with a subscription page.
Apple music comes with a monthly price of $9.99 for an individual user or you can opt for a family plan of up to six members for $14.99, this subscription is not required, but if you want to take advantage of offline capabilities along with other Apple music features, you will need to be a subscriber.
If you want to get a taste of this new music service, Apple is offering a three-month free trial, be aware if you sign up for this free trial, it will automatically enroll you with a renewal option, if you don’t want to be charged, go ahead and turn off the renewal option, your card associated with your iTunes account won’t be automatically charged.
Once the free trial is up in three months, when starting up, you will select what type of music, you are along with the artist from here, Apple music will generate music for you which is located in the tab below, so you will have recommended playlists according to your artist song or genre preferences.
The music player is going to be located at the bottom and to bring that up, all you got to do is to tap on it, this will bring up what is now playing and you’ll have your music controls and also a heart button on the left.
If selected, it will play similar artists, next we have the new tab which will give you the latest music on Apple music including albums, hot tracks recent releases, top songs, hot albums, new artists playlists, you can even view music videos in Apple music now at the top, you are able to select different genres and it’ll give you the newest music for that specific genre.
Next, we have radio which is going to include apple music radio and all new beats 1 radio now beats 1 is a 24/7 worldwide live radio station hosted by DJs and has different radio shows throughout the day just like you would normally hear on a radio station.
You’re able to see the upcoming shows on beats 1, so you can always stay up to date with what is coming, next we have a connect tab which is a social network for artists to share new songs, photos and videos to those who are following them.
Apple music automatically starts following artists according to your music library, you can always unfollow artists as well, if anyone can follow artists on connect, only Apple music subscribers are able to play and save content or posts, you can also comment on post and share content to other social networks now.
The last tab is the my music tab, this is your music, you will have two tabs up on the top for your music library and your playlist, you can scroll through your library by artist album songs music videos genre composers and compilations.
We have a show music available offline option which will only show the music that you have stored on your device now, your playlist tab will display all of your playlists either on your device or from Apple music now.
If you want to go ahead and search you have the search icon on the top right which will allow you to search through Apple music or your own music library, when putting in a search on Apple music, you have a top results artist songs, albums, playlist music videos and radio stations, depending on what you search now.
I think one of my favorite features with Apple music is the fact that you can use Siri with it, so you can say things like play top hits from 2007, it’ll automatically start playing the top hits on Apple music from 2007.
You can also say things like play more songs like this, if you like that tune, that’s currently playing and you can also cue things, so you can say after this song played jungle bay by skrillex and diplo, so I definitely think with the Siri functionality on Apple music, this is going to be a really awesome music service now.
we do want to give Apple music of run, you will need to be updated to iOS 8.4 on your iPhone iPad or iPod Touch or if you are Mac or PC user go ahead and update to the latest version of iTunes now for those of you who are running Android and you’re curious about it.
Apple will be launching Apple music for Android this fall along with support for the Apple TV, so far using it for a few hours, I’m enjoying it now. I want to know if you are a fan of Apple’s new music service or whether you will be sticking to whatever you currently use or which music service you are using.
