Apple Music is bringing its streaming service to the world's largest platform. On Thursday (Sept. 5), Apple Music launched a web app accessible using any desktop computer browser. Previously, using Apple Music on a PC or Mac required downloading the iTunes store application.
The move away from the iTunes store should be a welcome addition for PC users and for consumers who own Chromebooks or devices running Linux. Eventually, users will be able to sign up for Apple Music through the web app, according to a statement from Apple. The new web player also has a similar design to the forthcoming Apple Music app in Mac OS Catalina, which will come out this fall.
For now, only current Apple Music subscribers outside of China will be able to use this new web app on their preferred browser.
