Apple has rolled out the Apple Music Voice Plan, a new Apple Music subscription tier built around Siri’s capabilities. For Rs 49 per month, Apple Music Voice Plan subscribers get access to the service.
Providing access to its new Apple Music Voice plan, the new service, which is primarily intended for use with HomePod speakers or AirPods, restricts users from using Siri to access Apple Music.
Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats said, “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.”
Users can sign up for the Apple Music Voice Plan by saying “Hey Siri, start my Apple Music Voice trial,” or by going to the Apple Music app and signing up. Users can request music to be played across all of their Siri-enabled devices, including HomePod mini, AirPods, iPhone, or any other Apple device, as well as when using CarPlay, once they have subscribed to the Apple Music Voice Plan.
In addition, Apple Music is releasing hundreds of new mood and activity playlists created by Apple Music’s editorial team and optimised specifically for voice. For a truly personalised music experience, Siri subscribers can ask Siri to “Play the dinner party playlist,” “Play something chill,” or even “Play more like this.” These new playlists are available to all Apple Music subscribers, and they make using Apple Music with Siri even better. Apple Music Voice Plan subscribers will also have access to all of Apple Music’s playlists, including New Music Daily, Rap Life, Today’s Hits, Today’s Country, A-List Pop, R&B Now, and more.
Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States will all have access to the Apple Music Voice Plan later this fall.
Also, the subscribers will receive a personalised in-app experience that includes suggestions based on the listener’s music preferences as well as a queue of recently played music via Siri. There will also be a section called “Just Ask Siri” in the app where subscribers can learn how to get Siri to work better with Apple Music.
Subscribers can easily switch to Apple Music’s individual plan for INR 99 per month or family plan with up to six accounts for Rs 149 per month at any time to gain access to Apple Music’s premium offerings, which include Spatial Audio and Lossless Audio, Lyrics, Music Videos, and more.
