Apple Music set to rival Spotify and Tidal

Apple Music set to rival Spotify and Tidal

So, as I am sure you are all aware (and for our Twitter followers, perhaps you saw the live updates), Apple has revealed its brand new service. A music service to combat the likes of Spotify, Tidal and other music apps.
I, personally, think its great as it seems to offer so much more than any other music streaming service. It has many “A points”, most recognisably, its 24/7 radio station, its elaborate music video library as well as the streaming service, a way for artists to share unreleased tracks and other materials as well as anybody (yes, you don’t have to be signed to a label) being able to share their music. And it seems to be coming in at the same price as its competitors at $9.99.
Oh, and did we mention you get a three month free trial period?
The app will also include a recommendation system to suggest songs… A bit like Apple Genius we presume, but with the added benefit of choosing any song as opposed to being limited to whatever you have on your iPod.
Apple also revealed that the UK would be the first country to get its Apple Pay service after America.
The radio service that Apple will launch, Beats 1, will be hosted by Zane Lowe among others and will run for 24 hours a day, playing a mixture of genres and being aimed at true music lovers.
Spotify leads the market, with 15 million paying subscribers but some consultants suggest Apple could catch up with this in under a year.
There were many other updates released by Apple, including some good news for Apple Watch users, and these have been shared on our twitter page (@technorumors).
Apple has come late to the music streaming business but they have definitely arrived now.
