Apple opens up Apple Music even further – details

Apple has provided more detailed information for developers on how to take advantage of the new Apple Music API introduced in iOS 9.3.

In a document titled Apple Music Best Practices for App Developers, Apple summarizes how third-party iOS apps can integrate with Apple Music, including some of its functionality in their apps.

Specifically, the Apple Music API will allow develoePrs to directly control Apple Music playback as well as determining if a user is currently a member, determine which country the user’s account is based in, queueing up songs for playback, and reading playlists already in a user’s music library and creating new playlists with a title and description.

Developers can also participate in the Apple Music Affiliate Program, earning a one-time commission if a user signs up for a paid Apple Music account using their app.

Is Apple becoming the new Google? As revenue drops, will Apple look at new ways to open up and gain new users?
