Apple launched a web version of apple music which lets subscribers stream music without the need to install Apple Music app or iTunes. The web player works almost on all browsers including Google Chrome running any OS including Windows 10, Chrome OS and even on Android. The user interface looks identical to Apple’s standalone music app that the company is launching with mac OS Catalina.
The web version can be accessed by beta.music.apple.com
App VS Web
The web version is limited in features and functionality at the moment with this beta. It offers access to the entire apple music categories and catalogues. It also offers all the tracks that the user have synced with their libraries which aren’t on apple music. Radio Station and apple’s personalized playlist “For you” are also available in the beta.
The web version will be missing some features that the app version provides but Apple says it will continue to add all those features in the future beta.
Users can also be able to Sign Up to Apple music although the feature is not yet avaiable at the moment.
This move from Apple makes Apple Music available on other platforms like Chrome OS and Linux which makes it easier for Apple to deliver Apple music without developing a separate app for the corresponding OS and to compete with Spotify, one of the biggest competitor of Apple Music that provides web player.
