Apple launches beta of web-based Apple Music streaming service

Apple launches beta of web-based Apple Music streaming service

This will allow subscribers stream music directly from a browser without having to install iTunes or a separate app.

You can finally listen to Apple Music on the web, in any browser of your choice, instead of relying on the dedicated app. Spotify has had a web app for years, and so did other services like Google Play Music, Amazon Prime Music, and YouTube Music, so Apple is playing catch-up here.

You get the full set of features including playlists, radio stations, the For You section and music you might have synced to your library from another source on another device. Subscribers will have to opt-in to the beta at beta.music.apple.com to start using the web player.

Apple Music is coming to the web, even though it is still in beta mode. But Apple says it'll continue to build out the website over time.

By the way, Apple recently added beta Chromecast support to Apple Music for you app users.

The music playback interface is at the top of the browser window. Third, it puts the service more on the level of Spotify who has had a web-based UI for years. In 2015, Apple made a decision to dip its toes in that specific market niche - a niche that was already well occupied by Spotify, Google Play Music, Deezer, Pandora, even Napster and Tidal. However, if you now rely on the syncing of your DJing app and iTunes, you'd be well advised not to upgrade your OS until a workable solution has been found.

Apple will reportedly be requesting feedback from users to streamline features and remove bugs, according to a report from TechCrunch. The web version of Apple Music comes just months after the company announced the end of iTunes (at least, for Apple users) and weeks ahead of its big September iPhone event.

The beta website incorporates the vast majority of Apple Music's core features, yet in case they're another client hoping to join, they'll need to do that somewhere else, through the mobile or desktop application, until further notice.
