Apple Music streaming software changes ‘app store’ for Apple Music, ‘music adjusters’
Apple Music now features a new set of software tweaks that aim to streamline the app store for the streaming service.
The new suite of tweaks includes the ability to switch between the ‘music store’ and the ‘custom’ apps, while also enabling you to play a music app directly from the app.
Users also now have the option to view and download a music album, as well as view and delete songs from the ‘app’ store.
Apple has been working on the music app changes for some time and has been testing them for several months now.
As reported by The Verge, Apple Music’s previous “music store” was designed to allow users to choose from a range of music-related music apps.
Instead, the new “custom” apps will provide a more traditional interface for users to navigate around the streaming services, while allowing them to play music directly from their devices.
“This will allow you to choose the music you want to listen to, but you’ll be able to play from the music store as well,” Apple Music general manager Michael Schur wrote in a blog post on the company’s blog.
“[This] is the way it should be for all of us.”
The “custom apps” will also allow users the ability not only to create custom playlists, but also add a new song to their playlist for a small fee.
It’s not clear whether the new tweaks will also let users play music from Apple Music as a ‘customer’, or allow users access to a custom playlist.
Some of the tweaks will allow users with multiple devices to use the same ‘appstore’ to stream music from multiple devices, with the ability for them to choose which device they want to stream from.
For example, users could stream music to their iPhone 4S from their Apple TV and then use the ‘App Store’ to play it on their AppleTV.
There’s also a ‘Music App Switch’ feature that allows users to switch from one app to another when using their Apple Music account, which lets them browse music directly.
In addition to these new tweaks, Apple has also introduced a number of new features for the new app store.
Users will now be able download songs and albums directly from Apple, and the app will also include a new section for ‘Playlists’, which will allow for users of the streaming app to create playlists that can be shared between devices.
The new ‘App Stores’ section has been expanded to allow for more ‘featured’ and ‘unique’ content, including the ability and ability to add ‘friends’ and more.
Other new features include the ability users to view ratings for songs, albums and plays, and to access playlists and recommendations for songs.
The changes come as Apple’s music app continues to evolve, with a number more streaming services launching over the coming months.
