Apple Music is making a big splash today as Apple released a brand new web app for the streaming music platform. Through this new browser-based interface, Apple Music subscribers can stream from anywhere without the need for a platform-specific application.

Apple Music usually offers a very basic web experience, but Apple is already taking things to the next level. If you are an Apple Music subscriber, this new web interface must look very familiar.
Through Apple Music on the Web, you can access all the main features of the streaming service, including your library, search, radio, surf and more ▼. If you have the Sync Library setting enabled, you will be able to keep your library the same in Apple Music on all your devices.
All editorial content of Apple Music can also be found through the Web App, including Select For You and all other curated playlists and charts. The web application also responds to your Dark Mode setting, which is a very nice touch. Overall, it looks a lot like the new macOS Catalina music app.
As noted by TechCrunch extending Apple Music to the web makes it far more accessible to many who cannot install iTunes or Apple Music applications. In addition, it is helping Apple move away from iTunes support on Windows after the new music app launches on Mac this fall.
Note: Beats Music was available on the web, but this experience was lost after the service was moved to Apple Music branding.
The new web version of Apple Music is now available as a public beta. You must currently be an existing Apple Music subscriber to use the web application. In the future, Apple says new users will be able to sign up for the website.
