Apple has released a new browser version of its streaming platform Apple Music. With this browser version the streaming service can be used platform-independently for the first time. For example, the service is being introduced to the Linux world for the first time, where it could previously only be used via complicated detours.
The web app does not differ from the previous mobile versions of the service either in terms of design or core functions. The design of the current public beta phase is based primarily on that of the current macOS version. In addition to the classic version, there should also be a dark mode version, which can be used at will.
The web app is equipped with a function called “Library Sinc”, with which it can be synchronized with other versions of the service, so that all content can be transferred to the browser version. A subscription is required to use the new version. However, new users have the option of taking out a trial subscription free of charge for three months.
Apple’s streaming service has been available in over 100 countries since 2015, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In popularity, it ranks behind the market leader Spotify. It remains to be seen whether the introduction of the browser version will be able to change this. It is not yet known when it will be published to the general public.
