After months of rumors, Apple finally unveiled its music streaming service called Apple Music at WWDC today.
The music streaming service will come with a 24 x 7 live radio station called Beats 1, and Apple Music Connect — that will allow artists to easily connect with their fans and share their upcoming work with them.
“Apple Music is really going to move the needle for fans and artists,” said Jimmy Iovine. “Online music has become a complicated mess of apps, services and websites. Apple Music brings the best features together for an experience every music lover will appreciate.”
Apple will be launching Aple Music from June 30. The first three months of the service will be completely free, with subscribers being charged $9.99 per month after that. For family members, Apple is also launching a family plan that will provide up to six family members with access to Apple Music for only $14.99 per month.
On launch, the service will be available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Windows based PCs, with an Android app coming later this year. The service will also be making its way to Apple TV later this fall.
