Yesterday, June 30th, Apple launched its highly anticipated music streaming app. The Apple Music app came along with a software update to IOS 8.4 which users had to install before they could begin their three month free trial to Apple Music. So, is there anything that sets Apple's streaming device apart from Spotify and other successful ventures? According to reviews, not yet, but they have the potential.
Apple Music isn't using as high of quality for music as the others but that could change and they have playlists for everything, like Spotify, but easier to browse. Gizmodo's Kelsey Campbell-Dollaghan stated, "It’s not that these things are different than what, say, Spotify offers. They’re just a lot easier to browse from your phone screen through Music."
Apple Music takes the challenge out of browsing and choosing what you want to hear next. Its music suggestion process is not great on the first day but should become quite the nice feature. Another aspect that Apple may have over the others is the 'connect feature' which allows artists to release music directly to their fans first. It makes the listening experience have an exclusive feel. Try three months free of Apple Music. I certainly will, though it'll be hard to pry me away from my beloved Spotify.
