    Based on whose opinion? Call me extremely skeptical.

    HD audio is coming once the service is established.  

    Based on what?

    So now you don't care about high quality sound when your previous sentence said you did? confused.

    I very much care about high quality at home on my big system. But at work and driving around are noisy environments that I don't feel benefit a lot from super high quality.

    Problem is Pandora/Spotify won't be free for long.


    Again, based on what?

     And for $4 a month (family of 4) I'm more than willing to pay a little to free myself from commericals.

    I'm content to put up with some commercials. To each their own.

    From Apple:
    What happens to my Beats Music service?
    Once Apple Music launches on June 30, you can easily move your current Beats Music subscription over to Apple Music. Just open Beats Music on your iOS device and you’ll be prompted to join Apple Music. Once you’ve signed up, the playlists you’ve created or subscribed to and the albums you’ve saved in your Beats Music library will all be available to you in Apple Music.

    Still have questions? Read the FAQ at Beats Music

    What happens to my iTunes library?
    Your iTunes library is still yours. You can access your entire collection from Apple Music or the iTunes app on Mac or PC.

    How does Apple Music know what songs are in my personal library?
    With an Apple Music membership, your entire library lives in iCloud. We compare every track in your collection to the Apple Music library to see if we have a copy. If we do, you can automatically listen to it straight from the cloud. If you have music that’s not in our catalog, we upload those songs from iTunes on your Mac or PC. It’s all in iCloud, so it won’t take up any space on your devices.

    Does Apple Music work with Apple Watch?
    With a membership to Apple Music, you can sync music to your Apple Watch and play it back — even when your paired iPhone is not nearby.

    Does Apple Music work on Android phone?
    Yes, we are excited to offer Apple Music for the Android platform. It is coming this fall.

    How does the family plan work?
    Up to six people in your family can enjoy the full library and unlimited listening that come with Apple Music. All you need to do is set up iCloud Family Sharing on your iOS device or Mac and invite family members to join.

    Learn how to set up Family Sharing

    Does Apple Music work with iTunes Match?
    Yes. Apple Music and iTunes Match are independent but complementary.

    is this a serious question?

    If you are off of wifi/cellular where exactly would those songs be stored?  

    Locally. I can do this with Google Play Music. Just hit one button and the entire playlist I selected downloads for offline use later. Hit it again when I'm done with that list and it all disappears freeing up that space instantly.

    They didn't detail it, but I believe they may do that and set the expiration time on songs.

    All my songs are on the cloud in iTunes Match and available across all my Apple equipment. I have them in an iTunes Library of course, but that is on an external drive and has been off line for a year in a cupboard, so 100% of 'My Music' is internet dependent by choice.

    I use Google music on my iPhone 5 and my htc m8 just because it's Google doesn't mean you have to hate it. Worst false dichotomy ever

    I was pleasantly surprised by this. I thought I was going to be ho-hum, because I'm pretty happy with Spotify... but some of the features look intriguing, and it wouldn't cost me more than it does now.

     

    I have to see if the library is as deep as Spotify's... I listen to a crapload of obscure stuff, and if I can't find it... :/

     

    I must be the only one actually jazzed about the global radio station.

    I agree with you completely in this case. I think Apple has to get into this space, but this was hardly "revolutionary". And if The Weekend was an example of the "hand-picked" expert curation of the playlists, then it's going to be a bumpy launch.

    Not really. I was pretty excited with what Apple had to offer. If I'm not falling head over heal with Apple glory spurting out of my mouth for you, I apologize. I see this for what they are. I can't wait for iOS 9 and other products but just am not impressed with Apple Music. Once again, I apologize that I have a mind of my own.

    Splitting your single-user subscription across multiple devices does not get you the same functionality as a proper family plan does.

    Plus the DIY of Connect in ?Music brings the same fresh blood and opportunity to music as the App Store brought to small time programmers. This could be huge. I know they could do it on iTunes but this is a whole new game of American Idol ...! :D

    He was going straight for Pandora's jugular with that comment.
