I read it to say 100 countries go live on 30 June US time. I note the Apple US site says available 30.6.2015 but UK/NZ/AU all say coming soon.

Hopefully I'm wrong, as I'm keen to compare this with Spotify and Google Music.

Perhaps only the radio part (beats 1) will roll out worldwide on that date. It is already showing in the music app for iOS 9 and 8.4.

Its looking like only Beats 1 radio will release tomorrow for countries outside the US. I don't think the rest of Apple Music will release for non US countries.

What gives you that idea? I'm fairly sure it's all launching in 100 countries tomorrow (including NZ). Guess we will find out tomorrow morning!

Well, looks like I was wrong. It appears the full Music service is available to us after upgrading to iOS 8.4.

Time to cancel Spotify renewal for a few months (and permanently if it is any good).

Not that I use Siri much, but the integration with Music will probably quite good while driving - especially with "Hey Siri".

Has anyone found any settings for quality of the music? E.g. "Normal" for streaming on WiFi, "Low" for streaming on 3G/4G, "High" for downloading offline?

I also love the "Play the top songs from 2004" feature. Gonna be an awesome trip back in time.

Looks like it's standardized across the board at 256kbps.

Has anyone figured out how many devices you can stream at once on the personal/single account? Seems I can stream my computer and iPhone at the same time. I wonder if you can stream two iOS devices at once?

It pops up on the first device that you are listening on another device and pauses it. But looks like you can resume and listen to both at once.
