Apple Music finally comes to Linux

Apple Music Expands with New Web Interface

The company launched a public beta for a browser-based Apple Music, allowing users to stream without downloading any apps.

At last, you can listen to Apple Music on the web, in your browser of choice, instead of needing an iOS or Android app, or iTunes app for Mac or Windows.

As you may be aware, this new version of macOS will see Apple doing away with iTunes and replacing it with the Music app and several others.

Apple told Billboard that it eventually plans to let people sign up for Apple Music through the web app. At beta.music.apple.com, current Apple Music subscribers can log in and use most of the services core features.

The music playback interface is at the top of the browser window. But until now streaming Apple Music on computers has required the sluggish iTunes app.

If you're not a subscriber, you can sign up here from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac to try it out.

Don't get too excited though, the beta site will be missing some features, including the flagship Beats 1 live broadcast, some of Apple's original music video content, and smart playlists. Additionally, by bringing Apple Music to the web, the company provides Linux and Chrome OS users with more options.

For users who already have the Apple Music app, it might not seem like a huge step for Apple to make it available online. Now that Apple Music has a web version, I can pretty much enjoy the service on all platforms.

While this is the first time Apple has made its music service available on the web, the recent popularity of an unofficial website suggested that there's some pent-up demand here.
