Apple Music is a streaming service much like Spotify, but it functions out of the music app on your phone/Apple TV and on iTunes on your computer.

You can download songs for offline use and you can play them without being connected to the internet provided that your account is valid.

I have Apple Music and use it to stream songs I am curious to hear/probably wouldn't spend money on. I like it very much because I use it at work and when I'm on the go.

The popularity of streaming services is what killed sales (and especially digital sales). Back in 2008, you needed approx 250,000-300,000 to be #1 on the US Digital Chart. Now, anywhere from 60,000-70,000 is enough depending on the week.

It also killed album sales across, especially in the UK with #1 albums selling less than 5,000 copies a week but with streaming factored in, can reach up to 13,000-14,000.

Call me old fashioned, but I miss the days of physical releases only. The rush of removing the shrinkwrap and looking through the booklet on your first listen...



So it is the same as Spotify. Spotify has the offline thing as well as the phone apps and tv apps. I've had Spotify since 2008 (it's swedish so we were first to get it here and I loved it and had it from day 1).

I thought Apple music was like iTunes music stuff, you got copies of CD:s and mp3 downloads of your choice each month if you pay a certain amount each month. That's why I've been confused and trying to understand it. Don't see any point in Apple having a similar service as Spotify. Two "hot/hip" brands like they both are should cooperate and not be rivals Can't believe they don't see the value in working together instead.

Apple Music is 10$ a month and you can download whatever album or songs in the Apple library (which is basically every song ever) straight to your phone (or whatever) through the iCloud which then adds the music automatically to your laptop and Apple TV and whatever else.

So instead of paying 10$ for one album you want, you pay 10$ a month and can download whatever the ***k you want unlimited. It's a great deal for people like me who download like 3 albums and/or 30 songs or more a month.

I’m on a student plan so I only pay 4.99 a month. Spotify has the same deal. I use Apple Music instead of Spotify (I only have Spotify because my friend needed it so I made an account for him but he got back with his bf so he doesn’t need it now so I just kept it to help WAU) since Apple Music is so much better when you’re in the Apple ecosystem.

Pretty sure you can't download the actual music. It's through iCloud. As soon as you cancel your subscription, all the music disappears.

Ok cool. So essentially Spotify, just Apples version. Thanks.
