At Last, Apple Launches Apple Music Web App Apple’s popular music streaming service Apple Music is expanding to the web, further liberate the company’s media services from iTunes. If the user has already subscribed Apple Music, they can log in with the Apple ID and try to experience the public beta version of the web player. The web version of the Apple Music provides the same functionality as the Music app in macOS Catalina.
The browser-based experience offers a set of core features. For instance, a user can search and play any song in the Apple Music catalog. Users can also access their own playlists, as well as other features provided by iTunes, including music library, search, personalized recommendations, “Browse”, and “Radio”. Apple plans to add more features in the future, based on the feedback from consumers.
One of the benefits of providing a web-based Apple Music service is that the service will no longer depend on the operating system. Users can use this service on computers that do not have iTunes or Music apps, this is also a boon for those who can’t install these apps on their office systems.
Apple says that, in the end, users will be able to sign up for Apple Music through the web app. Apple is paying more attention to the service business, so it is more sensible to offer products such as Apple Music and Apple TV+ in a more convenient manner and is also beneficial to current and future paid subscribers. In addition, competitors such as Spotify, Amazon Music, and Pandora have already provided web players, which makes it logical for Apple Music to do so.
At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June this year, Apple announced separate Music, Podcasts and TV apps for the latest version of the desktop operating system, foreshadowing that iTunes is coming to an end.
