Apple announces iTunes Radio
Posted on 11-Jun-2013 09:24 | Tags Filed under: News



Apple has announced iTunes Radio, a free Internet radio service featuring over 200 stations and a catalog of music from the iTunes Store. When you tune into iTunes Radio on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC or Apple TV, you’ll have access to stations selected by the service based on the music you already listen to, Featured Stations curated by Apple and genre-focused stations that are personalised just for individual preferences.

The company says iTunes Radio evolves based on the music you play and download. The more you use iTunes Radio and iTunes, the more it knows what you like to listen to and the more personalised your experience becomes. iTunes Radio also gives you access to exclusive “first listen” premieres from top selling artists, Siri integration, plus the ability to tag or buy anything you hear with just one click.

“iTunes Radio is an incredible way to listen to personalised radio stations which have been created just for you,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “It’s the music you love most and the music you’re going to love, and you can easily buy it from the iTunes Store with just one click.”

iTunes Radio offers music fans access to thousands of new songs every week, as well as serving up exclusive music from new and popular artists. iTunes Radio will also be home to special events including live streams direct from the iTunes Festival in London and other exclusive iTunes Sessions.

Coming this fall (in the US), iTunes Radio will offer this personalised experience on day one based on your listening history and past purchases from iTunes. In addition, if you’re listening to a song you like from iTunes Radio or your music library you will be able to have a station built around those.

Siri support will let users command iTunes Radio with their voices. Ask Siri “Who plays that song?” or “Play more like this” and Siri will make it happen. Say something like “Play Jazz Radio” or ask for any of your existing favorite stations and genres. Shape your stations by telling Siri what you like and don’t like, or tell Siri to pause, stop or skip. You can also have Siri add songs to your Wish List to download later.

iTunes Radio will be ad-supported and free for everyone. Users of the paid iTunes Match service get iTunes Radio ad-free. With iTunes Match, all your music, even songs you’ve imported from CDs, are stored in iCloud. iTunes Radio can then use information about your entire music collection to make your stations even more personalised.
