Apple Music web app launches


Apple Music for web

Todd Haselton | CNBC

Apple Music is now available to stream in your web browser. Apple Music for the web quietly launched in beta in September but seems to have slid under the radar for most folks who didn’t know the service existed.

Apple Music for the web requires a subscription ($9.99 per month) and is similar to Spotify’s web service. It lets you stream more than 60 million songs and access playlists, albums, artists and favorites you may have saved on your iPhone.

The web version is convenient for subscribers who normally use the Apple Music app on an iPhone or iPad, but have not used the service on a Windows computer where they’d have to download and install Apple’s famously sluggish iTunes software. It’s not as relevant for Mac users, as Apple replaced iTunes with a much better app just for Music (as well as separate apps for Podcasts and TV) in the newest version of macOS.

The web version has the same clean and easy to use interface as Apple Music on Mac, iPhone and iPad. There’s a list of your playlists and different sections of Apple Music like — For You with recommended tunes, Browse and Radio — on the left panel. And you can easily search for and stream new music. It’s simple.

Apple wasn’t immediately available to comment on what changed between the beta and Friday’s launch, if anything.
