It is a week away from Apple Music’s launching. And it is no doubt that its competitors are uncomfortable with its launching. It is always high competition in tech field.
To compete with Apple Music, Google Play Music introduced a new free, ad-supported version before Apple Music launches.
Google provides a Pandora-like radio streaming service to everyone first in the United States, and the radio streaming service consists of curated playlists and automatically generated streams. This service has its limitation as the users can not pick any song they want just as they did on Spotify’s free tiers.
Google Play Music’s vice president of partnership Zahavah Levine said: “they think more users will become paying subscribers as the service providing them a taste of its new feature through the ad-supported tier.” He added, it has potential to bring more users into Google Play music.
Now this service is available on the web, and it will also introduce iOS and Android apps in the next few days on the web.
Apple is going to launch its Apple Music on its own 24-hour online radio station beats on June 30, confirmed by former Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe.
