The Verge reports that "Spotify plans to match Apple Music’s very cheap family plan."What's the price comparison for 6 family members?
Yep. 3 Members= 20.The Verge reports that "Spotify plans to match Apple Music’s very cheap family plan."
According to the linked article, "Apple offers a family plan that can be shared by up to six people for $14.99. Spotify and Rdio also offer family plans, but those cost $14.99 for two people, and $29.99 for five."
So Apple is cheaper, at least for the moment, for family plans.
Apple Music is pretty awesome. I didn't use Spotify, but I've heard a lot of people online say Apple Music is a lot better because it's much better at suggesting new music you might like. It takes a little bit of usage to figure it all out, but it works great. I can search for single songs just fine. I think you're looking in the wrong spot. Go to My Music > Apple Music > Search (upper right)> and then look at the song listings rather than scrolling all the way down to stations. From there, you can add it to playlists or save it to your library. You can also save it to the device so it gets stored locally and will be available offline. You might want to remove the @Connect tab to remove some of the clutter and get your playlists tab back. I posted directions for that here. Additionally, you can ask Siri to play genres or specific artists and they will stream without ads or skip limits. If you find something you like, you can save it with one of the methods I stated earlier.I just got into Apple music and think it's awful. I was expecting something song the lines of Spotify but as far as I can tell it's not. I can't search for a single song that I want and add it to my music. I can get an artists "station" but sometimes I don't like all of an artists songs. Maybe I'm missing something but even if I subscribe to Apple Music I still have to buy single songs in iTunes. What a mess
I'm not sure what you mean by killing off iTunes. Your iTunes music will remain on the computer and you can still sync music to the phone. You might be referring to iCloud Library, which is required for full functionally of Apple Music and makes all of your music available on each of your devices via the cloud. I have it enabled, but I still have music synced to my phone and can listen to it offline just as I always have.I think you're right I was doing the search wrong. So if this is right it should kill off iTunes wouldn't it? Thanks for the help btw
Most won't. I'm not. If I cancel the subscription, I'll go back and buy some of the stuff I really liked during the trial period.I don't think I'm doing a good job of explaining myself, sorry. I probably don't fully understand Apple Music either so bear with me. I meant if people can now pay $9.99 a month and get unlimited streaming of their favorite songs why would they continue to pay $1.29 a song on iTunes for the same thing? Or am I missing the point altogether? :-p
Once you buy it, it's yours. If you discontinue your subscription for whatever reason, those purchased songs remain yours. The Music songs you will lose.Ah..... Good point my friend. Of course I'm not looking at the big picture. Not everyone will continue with the Music app. I'll shut up now ha!
So far, these are the two big benefits of Apple Music over Rhapsody. It "guesses" at what I like better. And of course because it's the apple solution it works with Siri without having to jailbreak. The downside is that the recommended playlists are short. Rhapsody's "curated" lists are much longer, so you can pick one and you've got music for quite a while.... Apple Music is a lot better because it's much better at suggesting new music you might like. ...
