Apple Music App Now Shows Notifications For New Albums From Favorite Artists In Library

Apple Music now offers notifications about new content from your favorite artist within the app

With its latest update, the Apple Music app on iOS notifies you about new songs, albums, and videos that were released by your favorite artists, right at the top of your music library.

The Apple Music service was launched back in 2015. At the time of its launch, the Apple Music app was available only on iOS. The Cupertino-based tech giant soon launched an app for Apple Music for Android devices. In its initial stages, the music service had very limited features and it was certainly behind apps from rival music streaming services such as Spotify, which offered a bunch of features such as sleep timer, gapless playback, Chromecast support, and so on.

However, over the past few years, the Apple Music app has gotten much better. The brand has added a lot of functionalities to the app. One of them was a feature that notified users about new content from their favorite artists via the phone’s notification panel. If you are an Apple Music user, you might know that the feature that notifies about new content isn’t consistent.

Well, Apple is now rolling out a new update to the Apple Music app on iOS. After the latest update, the app shows you the latest content from your favorite artists, such as songs, albums, and videos, right inside the app, at the top of your music library.

Once you open the updated app, it shows you a splash screen notifying you about the new feature. You can either choose to use this feature or turn it off. Once you turn it on, you will see the notification pane about new music in the ‘Library’ tab. Currently, the update is rolling out at a slow pace and more people should receive it soon over the next few days. If you haven’t received the update already, you can check for it in the ‘Updates’ pane in the App Store.

Our Take

While the new feature seems to be extremely useful and neatly integrated, there are a ton of other features that Apple Music misses out on, and some of them are sleep timer and the ability to download your entire library for listening to music when you’re offline. Hopefully, the brand will roll out these features in the near future.
