  • Apple releases Apple Music Web App beta

    From @Nathaniel Parker:

    Apple recently released a new web app in beta for Apple Music, one of the main features missing in Apple Music memberships.

    The current beta of the web app allows one to easily play any music from one’s Apple Music membership, including content from one’s iCloud Music Library matched or uploaded to iCloud. Other basic browsing (For You, Browse, Radio, Recently Added, Artists, Albums, and Songs) is available, as well as playlists synced with Apple Music appear. Dark Mode also works on macOS Mojave. The website also works on most modern web browsers.

    The ability to signup for Apple Music from the web app isn’t available yet, but reports are it’s coming.

    I tested this out with my personal Apple Music account. All of the browsing features were there, as well as my playlists and iCloud Music Library content. I occasionally had issues loading album artwork or seeing a “try again” message on some tabs, but clicking off and re-clicking the tabs caused them to load.

    It is a nice and needed addition to Apple Music, and I look forward to seeing the kinks ironed out and it brought out of beta, as well as additional features added to it.

    Personally (this is Woody again), I can’t wait to have an Apple music app that isn’t iTunes. I think I can count hundreds – thousands – of gray hairs from dealing with iTunes over the years. Come to think of it, most of those have fallen out.
