Apple launches Voice Plan to make Apple Music more accessible
(Pocket-lint) – Apple is introducing a new Apple Music pricing tier, bringing the price down to just $ 4.99 per month. It’s half the price of the individual plan, which makes Apple Music a lot cheaper.
But there is a catch – you have to control it with your voice, hence the name Voice Plan. This new plan will allow a user to use Siri on Apple devices to access Apple Music.
Yes, you’ll have to ask Siri to play this music, which means it applies more naturally to those who use voice for everything – so those who use the HomePod mini might find this to be the perfect plan for them. .
Apple isn’t the first to take this sort of approach – Amazon offers an Echo plan for Amazon Music Unlimited for $ 3.99 – but again has the limitation that you only have access to everything on your device. Echo.
Apple has the advantage that the voice plan is applicable on all your Apple devices, but whether you want to use only voice control is another matter.
To help you get the most out of Apple Music, Apple has also introduced a new line of playlists that can be controlled with Siri. You can just ask Siri to schedule some music for your dinner or workout and you’ll end up with suitable tunes.
At least for those who only use voice, then you won’t have to ask for all the songs you want to listen to.
