Step aside, Spotify and Tidal! Apple‘s got big plans for their new music service!
The music giant announced its new app, Apple Music at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday — and it has it ALL.
The app’s got streaming, radio, and downloading, but believe it or not, there’s MORE! Apple Music will also include a feature called Connect, which incorporates a social media element, allowing artists to connect with their fans by posting content through their own profiles.
And who better to introduce the service’s social side than Drake! The rapper presented how he started from the bottom — AKA the Internet — to develop a fanbase, which is why he thinks Connect is such a great addition!
Thought the announcement couldn’t get more star-studded? Think again!
The radio station, called Beats 1, enlisted the services of BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, Hot 97’s Ebro Darden, and Julie Adenuga to Broadcast around the clock from London, LA, and New York!
As far as payment is concerned, members pay $9.99 per month — the same as Spotify Premium — but get the first three months for free! There’s also a family plan that allows six people to use the service for $14.99 per month.
But, you don’t HAVE to be a member to use some of the features. Non-members will still have access to Beats 1, and follow their favorite artists.
The service is set to launch on June 30th, but Android compatibility won’t happen until the fall.
