The music streaming service Apple Music offers a variety of functions. In our guide we give an overview of prices and functions.
The structure and resources for a music streaming service from Apple had been in place since 2003 - however, company founder Steve Jobs showed a negative attitude towards music streaming. According to a 2003 Apple Special Event, Steve Jobs believed that individual songs would be heard for life - not like movies that are only viewed a few times. For this reason, the company's founder, who died in 2011, turned down a subscription model for music.
This is what Apple Music offers
In addition to streaming numerous music videos, over 60 million songs or from many radio stations, Apple Music also offers other features. For many songs, the lyrics can be read or sung along while listening. Every day, Apple also offers its users personal recommendations of artists, songs, playlists or radio stations that match their own musical tastes. As an additional source of inspiration, there are ready-made playlists of various genres. The global charts and projects of favorite artists are also available as playlists. Songs, artists or playlists can also be selected using the Siri voice assistant.
