Apple is entering the streaming music service with its new Apple Music app.
What is Apple Music, exactly? Think of SoundCloud, Spotify (or Pandora) and online radio stations all combined in one sweet package. And it only costs $9.99 every month, or $14.99 a month for six family members. Users with Apple ID can sign into the app for free, but they’ll only be able to listen to radio stations. Paid users are allowed to download albums and playlists for offline playback.
The service offers more than 30 million of tracks to listen to. Highly regarded music artists, such as Drake, Dr. Dre and Pharrell, are rumored to become guest DJs for the iTunes Radio station.
Apple Music is slated for an iOS, Windows and Mac release on June 30 in over 100 countries. To further expand its reach, the service will also be available on Android later this year.
