Just as rumored, Apple today took the wraps off of its new music streaming service, and it’s called Apple Music.
Apple Music will offer on-demand streaming of more than 30 million tracks. You’ll also be able to listen to your own tunes, and the Apple Music app will also include a For You tab that’ll attempt to recommend playlists and albums that it thinks that you’ll like.
The new Apple Music service will also include Beats1, a 24/7 radio station. Beats1 will be hosted by DJs based in New York City, Los Angeles, and London.
The third major part of Apple Music is aimed at connected fans with artists. Called “Connect,” the feature will include photos, music, and video published by the artists, and the fans can then like, comment, and share on that content. Sounds like a little social network built into the Apple Music app, no?
Apple Music will launch in more than 100 countries on June 30, and new users will be able to sign up for a three-month trial. After that, a paid subscription will cost $9.99 per month. There will also be a family subscription available for up to six users at a price of $14.99 per month. The service will be available on iOS, Mac, and PC on June 30, with launches on Apple TV and Android coming this fall.
