A new music streaming service from Apple has been announced. It will cost $4.99 a month and is named “Apple Music Voice Plan.” The deal was revealed during Apple’s keynote on Monday, October 18. The AirPods 3 and the new MacBook Pro 14 and 16 inches were among the highlights of Apple’s event.
It’s not so shocking that a new music streaming service has been launched. It could even seem reasonable to do so in conjunction with the launch of the brand’s third-generation wireless headphones. All Siri-enabled Apple devices that can play Apple Music, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, HomePod, Apple TV, and AirPods, will use Voice Plan.
Third-party integrations such as Apple Music for Echo, Samsung smart TVs, and even Android devices, on the other hand, will not be accessible with the service. Subscribers to the Voice Plan have unlimited access to Apple Music’s full repertoire, including artists, songs, albums, stations, and playlists.
Only vocal commands are required to operate the service
But, aside from the student version, why is this service less expensive than Apple Music’s other services? Users will only utilize Voice Plan by using Siri to provide a voice command. Thus it will not navigate directly within Siri. As a result, the app will have a completely different look from the original: suggestions for asking Siri to play and recent listening history. A specific portion will be dedicated to teaching users how to use Siri to interact with Apple Music. Finally, Lossless Music, Dolby Atmos spatial audio, song lyrics, and video clips are not included in the Voice Plan.
Apple Music Voice Plan will be accessible in several countries this year, mostly in Europe; we expect Africa to be covered later. It’s unclear how much it’ll cost, but it’ll probably be around 5 euros each month. The Cupertino company distinguishes itself in the streaming market with this proposition. If Amazon Music has a similar service, it is only available on Echo and Fire TV devices, severely restricting its usability.
