Apple Music has only been around for about a month and it has already attracted 11 million users. The new music streaming service is expected to be one of the best ways to get your favorite music and it is only getting started.
That is a pretty impressive number of users in a short amount of time considering Spotify has around 20 million users. The service launched in June and users can select music to stream to their choice of device. It also includes Internet radio stations like Beats 1 and a blog area where users can connect with artists and other music fans. And of course, Apple Music wouldn’t be complete without Siri.
It costs $14.99 a month for the family plan, which can be used by six people. If you want to opt out of the family plan, Apple Music is free for the first three months then will cost $9.99 per month. Like a lot of the television streaming services, Apple Music offers recommendations based on the users taste of music. Apple Music hopes to be different than other music streaming services by offering exclusive features.
Apple Music is compatible with all iOS devices running at least version 8.4 with iTunes version 12.2 and also the Apple Watch. Apple TV and Android devices can see Apple Music hopefully in the fall this year.
