Apple Announces Streaming Service

After months of speculation, Apple finally announced their upcoming Apple Music streaming service at their annual WWDC event in San Francisco. The service, which stems from Apple’s partnership with Beats Music, will compete against streaming service powerhouses Spotify and Pandora (and Tidal, I guess). The announcement comes not long after Spotify announced a range of new features for their premium subscribers, putting Apple’s service on the hot seat before it was even announced. Notable features include Connect, a feature introduced by Drake at the broadcasted event, which allows artists to connect with their fans via video, mixtapes, albums, and even song lyrics. At $9.99 a month, the service remains within the range of what current music consumers have deemed acceptable. Like its competitors, it will also cater to each listener’s tastes with playlists based on mood and genre.
