Apple announce Apple Music

Apple Music  Apple announce Apple Music Apple MusicApple have just announced it’s new music streaming service named Apple Music at its yearly conference WWDC.

The new service similar to Spotify will be launching June 30th in 100+ countries and has all the songs on iTunes available for streaming. Like Spotify, you will also be able to store songs on your device for offline playing with a subscription. The good news for Android users is that there will be an app coming in the autumn.

The cost is $9.99 in the US so I imagine it will cost about the same as Spotify in the UK which is £9.99 a month. Apple is offering the first 3 months for free as well as a family subscription which costs a little more but allows for 6 people to use the service at once.

Built into Apple Music are two other feature, the first is a service called Beats 1. Beats 1 is an online radio station that broadcasts 24 hours a day with DJ’s such as Zane Lowe, Ebro Darden and Julie Adenuga. Also the Connect service is a place for new and established artist to connect with fans.
