Thanks to a creative workaround, originally found by 9to5Mac , you can use a special Shazam promotion to double the length of a typical free trial for Apple Music. To get started, download Shazam for iOS. When it does, it should automatically add the song to your Shazam library. Tap that. Cross your fingers on this part, because your promotion could drop to a meager one month likely for those who have already subscribed to Apple Music at some point, as I did. As one commenter described :. We both went through the same process.
How Apple Music compares to the competition
Apple Music plans
In comparison to music streaming sites like Spotify or Pandora, Apple Music can feel a bit mysterious. Anyone who signs up will have to pay a monthly fee to use the service. Considering that Apple Music offers live radio shows and interesting exclusives, this fee may be well worth it to the right buyers. Before we dive into the different pricing tiers Apple Music has to offer, we should note that all the subscriptions offer access to the same catalog of ad-free content, offline listening, Beats 1 live and on-demand radio shows, and exclusive releases. Just like Spotify , Apple offers all students with a valid student email address from a supported educational institution half-off an Apple Music membership.
New and noteworthy.
Apple expanded the global reach of its digital services today. As part of that, the company is making Apple Music free in 52 countries that are getting it for the first time, mostly in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Caribbean. In addition the App Store, which Apple says gets over million visitors a week, will be expanding to 20 new countries. That compares to 63 countries that Google Music currently supports and 80 countries that Spotify supports. The biggest challenge in getting your music-streaming app ready to go in new geographies is, of course, getting licenses from the rights owners, which can take a long time. By contrast the France-based music streaming service Deezer is available in countries.
Apple Music is a subscription-based music streaming service. It offers a three-month free trial for new subscribers. Besides, it also offers family plan as well as discounts for students. If you are an Apple Music new user, you may wonder whether you are able to get Apple songs downloaded to your computer within the free trial period so that you can continue listening to them even if you discontinue the subscription. It's been widely known that Apple Music is a streaming music service offering protected songs, for which you are unable to get them as local files. To make it straight, if you'd like to keep Apple Music for free forever , you'll have to turn to certain kinds of music tools. Here we take full advantage of the three-month free trial period that Apple Music offers. Please download your Apple songs to your computer with NoteBurner in the trial. Here we take the Windows version as an example to show you how to get Apple Music for free. Usually a simple interface is able to get users to be familiar with a program quickly.
