Interesting is that the same as Spotify? So in theory you wouldn't need a family account for say you and your spouse, you could share the account, though the pause thing could get annoying.

The pause thing would get REALLY annoying. Also since it's tied to your AppleID, you would have to share everything related to it.

Quite a clever way for them to say that you can stream on multiple devices, but make it so it's not really workable to "cheat" the system.

The setting to allow you to stream over cellular also lets you download offline over cellular. I would prefer those settings were seperate, so my fat fingers can't accidentally tell it to download an album or 100 song playlist over 4G.

Has iTunes updated for anyone to include the Apple Music stuff? I'm not seeing it in mine. Is showing up on my iPhone on 8.4.

EDIT: Was on 12.1, 12.2 now available for download.

Sharing Apple IDs with a family/spouse or what ever just doesn't work properly and shouldn't be done it messes with too much stuff (Phones, iMessage, FaceTime etc). The family sharing thing works pretty well if you want to share content between people.

Anyone else having trouble accessing streaming music? I'm getting an error and I saw the Verge has a stub of an article saying it's offline.

Really wish I had more time at work to have a play with it...

Working for me. I'd imagine the service will be absolutely hammered for the next few days though.

Yes, have to manually download. If you check for updates it says 12.1 is already the latest.

I'm still marvelling over the fact there is no android app at release day, surely they are having a laugh? How could anyone take this launch seriously when half the worlds mobile devices aren't catered for? With the resources at their disposal it's laughable it's not ready yet.

You kidding? How dare Apple prioritise their own devices first..

I imagine a vast number of those "half the world's mobile devices" are cheap, outdated Androids that are probably not even capable of running Apple Music.

Yet they all run Spotify flawlessly! Prioritise thier own devices fine, but they made $13.6 billion last quarter, you think they couldn't have done both at the same? I guess it's like their other multitasking, non existent!

Good luck with that, I can't see this ever coming to non-iOS or iTunes enabled devices.  And why would they? It's yet another value add for going all-in on the Apple ecosystem (not that I'm saying one is better than the other).

Ok, am I the only one having trouble with Siri. Some things just don't play when asking Siri, it understands and says it will play but then nothing happens.

Some work and some don't.

"Play Tom Jones" works.

"Play Imagine Dragons" doesn't.

Can anyone confirm they are having the same thing happen?
