Apple Music web player listeners can now stream full-length songs without exiting their browsers
Apple appears to have streamlined the online music listening process for Apple Music‘s web player. Whereas playing full-length songs via Apple Music previously required users to open iTunes or the mobile Apple Music app, Apple Music’s embeddable web player now permits listeners to play whole songs upon sign in to one’s Apple account. Expanded Apple Music abilities allow users to add both albums and playlists to their Apple libraries without exiting their open browsers.
Apple Music’s newfound web accessibility continues to remain limited, given that streamers are unable to browse the catalogue, view what their friends are listening to, and create playlists from within their browsers, but the broader utility of Apple Music on web platforms signals that Apple is continually moving towards Apple Music’s higher functionality.
