Apple Music Web Interface Leaves Beta
Apple Music’s web interface has left beta. Initially launched in September of last year, the web interface for Apple’s music streaming service has dropped ‘beta’ from its URL, signalling a new version is up and running.
Reported by MacRumors, attempting to access the site from the previous beta.music.apple.com address will redirect you to the new music.apple.com web version. Apple’s web-based streaming platform offers a similar experience found in the Mac version of the app.
Signing into with your Apple ID with an Apple Music subscription, you’ll find the ‘For You’, Browse, and ‘Radio’ tabs. Playlists and recommendations are also provided. You’ll have access to the same playlists and library found through the Apple Music app.
Through the web interface, Apple Music plays its content through the browser. This allows a bevy of devices not natively supported to play Apple Music content. Windows 10, Linux, and ChromeOS devices will have access to Apple Music.
The launch of the new Apple Music web interface comes days before Apple Music will host the One World: Together at Home online concert. On Saturday, April 18th, Apple Music will be one of the streaming platforms hosting Lady Gaga’s curated concert, raising awareness and celebrating healthcare workers. Apple has said that they will stream the linear broadcast starting at 8 pm EDT. There is also a multi-hour stream starting at 2 pm EDT that day, streaming on Facebook, Twitter, Amazon Prime, and YouTube.
