Apple Announces “Apple Music” – Streaming Music Service

Apple announces it’s new streaming music service which will launch on June 30, 2015.

Apple Music, meant to compete with existing music services like Spotify, is comprised primarily of three components:

• Stream millions of songs—and discover music you’ll love with handpicked playlists and recommendations from our experts.

• Listen to Beats 1, a 24/7 worldwide station broadcasting the best new music direct from Los Angeles, New York, and London that’s anchored by world-class DJ Zane Lowe.

• Apple Music Connect gives you a direct line to your favorite artists; where they can share demos, remixes, lyrics, photos—really anything they wish—straight to the fan.

The service will be free for three months then be available at $9.99 a month (or $14.99 for a family plan that serves 6). Membership will connect to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC.

A free, limited version will be available.
