Apple launches new Apple Music web app, public beta available now
Apple has unveiled a public beta for an all-new Apple Music web app, allowing subscribers to sign in and browse the full Apple Music library, listen to songs from playlists, search for tracks, and more through a browser – the first time Apple Music has been officially offered on the web.
The beta, which can be accessed at beta.music.apple.com when signing in with an Apple ID associated with an existing Apple Music subscription lets users trial the site prior to its official launch, and allows for feedback to be shared with Apple engineers, much like how Apple collects feedback from its OS beta programs.
As reported by TechCrunch, expanding the service to the web makes it far more accessible for many people who aren’t able to install the iTunes or Apple Music apps. Additionally, it allows Apple to move away from supporting iTunes on Windows once the new Music app launches on the Mac this fall.
Visitors using the site from a Mac which has Dark Mode enabled will be presented with a dark theme, whilst a light appearance is shown for non-Mac users, and those who have the Light appearance enabled on their Mac.
Anybody with an existing Apple Music subscription can trial the new web page, and Apple will reportedly allow new users to sign up for an Apple Music pay-monthly subscription over the web in the future.
