Today, at the “Unleashed” event, Apple has announced a new music subscription plan “Apple Music Voice Plan”. Powered by smarter Siri, the new plan will allow subscribers to access 90 million songs, thousands of playlists, personalized mixes, and more with their voice commands for only $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.
Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats describes the new experience as:
“Apple Music and Siri are natural partners and already work seamlessly together. With Siri actively used on hundreds of millions of devices worldwide, we are thrilled to add this new plan that delivers an effortless music experience just by using your voice and makes Apple Music accessible to even more people around the world.”
How to subscribe to the new Apple Music Voice Plan
To subscribe to the new plan, Apple Music subscribers can either sign up via the app or with the voice command “Hey Siri, start my Apple Music Voice trial”. When signed up, subscribers will be able to request Siri to play music across their Siri-enabled devices: iPhone, iPad, Mac, Homepod mini, AirPods, Apple TV, Apple Watch, and CarPlay. Through Siri, subscribers will be able to access over 90 million songs and have full play control to skip, play, pause, and more.
Apple Music Voice Plan subscribers will get a customized in-app experience with suggestions based on the listener’s music preferences and a queue of recently played music through Siri. Within the app there will also be a dedicated section called “Just Ask Siri” where subscribers can learn tips to optimize Siri for Apple Music.
