Apple Music launches beta web app

Apple Music launches beta web app

Apple Music is testing out a new web version of its music streaming app. 

Previously, Apple Music could only be used on desktops by downloading the iTunes store application. Now, the web app is available for all browsers.

The launch of the web app comes after the announcement that Apple Music is doing away with iTunes after 18 years. The move away from the iTunes store should be a welcome addition for PC users. While the feature isn't available just yet, users will eventually be able to sign up for Apple Music through the web app, according to a statement from Apple. The new web player also has a similar design to the forthcoming Apple Music app in Mac OS Catalina, which will come out this fall. 

Apple Music subscribers can now sign into their accounts, and will be able to play songs from their computer libraries, as well as their iCloud music libraries. For now, the web app does not include Apple Music Friends and Beats 1. It is expected to be added in the near future. 

For now, only current Apple Music subscribers outside of China will be able to use this new web app on their preferred browser.
