Apple Music Web player leaves beta
What you need to know
- Apple Music's Web player has left beta.
- The service was launched last September.
- It allows users to access their Apple Music libraries, along with browsing and the 'For You section.
Apple Music's Web Player has left beta and is now a fully-fledged web application for listening to Apple Music in-browser.
As MacRumors reports:
To use the service, you need to sign in using your Apple ID and password, you'll also need an Apple Music subscription. You'll be able to access your Apple Music library, as well as browsing and the 'For You' section.
The Web Player is pretty clunky, and definitely not as enjoyable as using Apple's mobile apps. However, it might well be a good deal better than using iTunes if you're a Windows user!
The coolest feature of Apple Music's web player by far is 'Replay.' Replay allows users to see a breakdown of their favorite artists, songs and albums over the previous year, and it's updated every week. you can generate playlists as far back as 2015 of your top 100 songs of the year, then save them to keep on Apple Music for listening on other devices. Replay gives great insight into which songs, albums, and artists you listen to the most, including stats about hours listened and the number of times you've played certain songs.
To access the web player and Replay, simply head to music.appple.com (opens in new tab).
