Posted by: on Jun 9, 2015 | No Comments

Yesterday at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Apple unveiled Apple Music, a single, intuitive app that combines the best ways to enjoy music — all in one place. Apple is hailing Apple Music as a revolutionary streaming music service. The service is available worldwide with live radio station from Apple broadcasting 24 hours a day. According to the Apple press release, Apple Music combines the largest and most diverse collection of music on the planet with the expertise of world-class music experts who have programmed playlists for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, Apple TV and Android phones. The Apple Music will be available starting on June 30 in over 100 countries.

Statement from Apple: We love music, and the new Apple Music service puts an incredible experience at every fan’s fingertips,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “All the ways people love enjoying music come together in one app — a revolutionary streaming service, live worldwide radio and an exciting way for fans to connect with artists.”

“Apple Music is really going to move the needle for fans and artists,” said Jimmy Iovine. “Online music has become a complicated mess of apps, services and websites. Apple Music brings the best features together for an experience every music lover will appreciate.”

Apple Music Connect
Artists and fans now have an incredible way to connect with one another directly in Apple Music with Connect. Through Connect, artists can share lyrics, backstage photos, videos or even release their latest song directly to fans directly from their iPhone. Fans can comment on or like anything an artist has posted, and share it via Messages, Facebook, Twitter and email. And when you comment, the artist can respond directly to you.

Pricing & Availability
Starting on June 30, music fans around the world are invited to a 3-month free membership, after which a $9.99/month subscription fee will apply. There will also be a family plan providing service for up to six family members available for just $14.99/month.

I’m not sure how Apple Music will fair against other well known streaming services in the space but from what I’m reading from other sites and online reports it does seem Apple could disrupt this space with the Apple brand like it does with all it’s new product launches. Spotify the top player in this music stream business has a new challenger in  Apple and unlike other music streaming services Apple has a war chest with over $100 billion at its disposal to shake up the music streaming  space! What do you think of the Apple Music stream service?
