Apple Music: 15 Million Subscribers & A Redesign

apple music

Apple Music has just announced that it now has 15 million subscribers.

Good news for the tech giant.

Another thing revealed at the company’s World Wide Developer Conference was that a total redesign of the streaming service’s interface is coming soon.

Good news for users.

15 million is certainly a good number. It means that Apple Music is inching closer to Spotify’s 30 million subscribers. Not close. Just closer.

Though it’s likely that Spotify will continue to grow in a can-see-the-rainbow-but-cant-touch-it-manner, Apple Music is willing to try.

The redesign is meant to get rid of the clutter than makes user experience confusing. It’s also meant to emulate Spotify’s easy-to-use feel and the now-missing lyrics feature. Check out the details:

The new design eliminates much of the clutter that made using Apple Music confusing. Two primary sections control the app – music downloaded on the phone and streaming from Apple Music. Hit play and album artwork is front and center along with easily accessible lyrics. The later is a deliberate jab at Spotify which recently dropped lyrics, at least temporarily.

A new section called “For You” includes “Discover,” “Recently Played” and a personalized playlist that looks very much like a daily version Spotify’s Discover Weekly. hypebot.com
