As of this week, Apple Music subscribers can stream music directly from a web browser. The new expansion, currently in its beta form, allows users to stream songs and albums without having to install iTunes or a separate Apple Music app.
According to The Verge, the interface resembles Apple’s standalone app launching with macOS Catalina later this year. Apple has assured subscribers that the new expansion should work in all browsers, including Google Chrome, and on all devices, including Windows 10, Chrome OS, and even Android.
This feature has already been offered by Swedish music streaming giant, Spotify for years already. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple Music has more paid subscribers than Spotify in the US. Spotify comes out on top internationally though.
