Apple’s Music Streaming Service To Offer Artists A Ping-like Social Network
Apple will reportedly have the discontinued iTunes Ping-like social network in its upcoming music streaming service for artists. This is according to a report published by 9to5Mac which suggests that this communication channel will be specified for musicians only.
The roots of the yet to be launched music-based social network, are being connected to the iTunes Ping — Apple didn’t take much time in closing it after its launch a couple of years ago.
Now the Cupertino is aspiring for its renaissance, though with slightly different form, saying it will allow musicians to “have their own pages within the streaming music service that they can use to post track samples, photos, videos, and concert updates.”
The musicians working on Apple’s anticipated Beats-based streaming service will not be obliged to use the service. That is to say they will be given the option to disable or enable the service anytime, the report reveals.
The predicted social network will be accompanied by Apple’s new music streaming app. Apple’s developers will redesign the company’s last year acquisition Beats Music app to build a unique Apple version. Supposedly, music service will be called “Apple Music.”
Further in the report, 9to5Mac reveals that the music service will be offered at $7.99 per month. Apple will launch the app during its developers conference, which has been scheduled for June. One of the interesting offering with the launch will be an Android version of the App–something which Apple has never done before.
