Apple Music Is Available For Rs 120 For A Single User In India
A few days back, Apple released the much-awaited iOS 8.4, and along with It, the much talked about Apple Music. The service arrived in India along with the iOS update, along with 100 more countries. Unexpectedly, the service is available in India for very low rates, especially when you compare it to what Apple is charging in the US. The streaming service has been priced at Rs.120 per month for a single user. You can also opt for a family with maximum six member plan at a discounted subscription of Rs.190 per month. In comparison, US subscribers will have to pay $9.99 (Rs.637) per month or $14.99 (Rs 918) per month for a family account.
Apple Music is slowly rolling out to some regions, and as promised, it is free to use for the first three months. Just enter your credit card details to sign up or if you already have your card on file in the AppStore, you’re good to go with the free trial.
The music service is built into a redesigned variant of the Music app on iOS based on Beats Music. Apple has also revamped its iTunes Radio and expanded the service to new countries. It has added a social media angle to it, making it an interactive feature for music lovers. Only artists will have their profiles, enabling them to post media including music samples and share content from other artists. The regular users can like or comment only using their iTunes accounts.
Apple is all set to revamp and replace its long forgotten ‘iTunes Ping’ with ‘Apple Music’. ‘iTunes Ping’ was a music social network service launched in September 2010 but had to be shut down two years later.
