Apple introduced a new more accessible plan for Apple Music solely with Siri at its “Unleashed” event.
This Apple Music subscription package is ideal for a single user. People will rely on Siri to listen to music on the service with the new “Voice Plan.”
On all of their Apple devices, users will get access to 90 million songs, tens of thousands of playlists, and stations for $4.99.
“Apple Music and Siri are natural partners and already work seamlessly together,” said Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats. “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 may subscribe to the Voice Plan by telling Siri, “Hey Siri, start my Apple Music Voice trial,” or by signing up through the Music app, according to Apple. Users may request music to be played across all of their Siri-enabled devices, including the HomePod mini, AirPods, iPhone, or any other Apple device, as well as when using CarPlay, if they have subscribed to the Apple Music Voice Plan.
For a tailored music experience, Siri subscribers may ask Siri to “Play the dinner party playlist,” “Play something relaxing,” or even “Play more like this.” Unfortunately, Spatial Audio and Lossless quality, as well as lyrics and music videos, will not be supported with this low-cost subscription.
Later this autumn, Australia, Austria, Canada, China mainland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States will be able to use this new option.
The following are all of the plans that are currently available:
