Apple Music Looks Like A Decent Competitor For Spotify
Coming this July to an Apple device near you!
If you're anything like me, you use your iPhone to primarily stream music on the go, specifically from Spotify or one of the other music services. Apple wants in on this business, and has made its intention to join the ranks of music streaming services around the world with the just-announced Apple Music at WWDC today.
The service will cost $9.99 a month or $14.99 for a family plan that includes up to six people with a three-month trial. You can get a two-person package from Spotify right now for $14.99, so it sounds like a pretty good deal if you've got a lot of family members or friends to hook up with music. The service is being rolled out June 30 with the 30 million tracks on the App Store at its disposal.
Along with this service, Apple announced a feature called Connect, which will allow artists to share things with their fans more readily, a sort of miniature blog that fans can subscribe to like on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Apple Music sounds like it's going to be a fierce contender for Spotify based on its pricing structure and upcoming features, but only time will tell. Are you interested in giving it a spin?
