Play Apple Music on the Web

Apple has rolled out a nifty function web player for Apple Music. If you go to the Apple Music Tools website, you can search for and play music by song, album, or playlist. This site is designed as a marketing tool; it allows record labels or artists to create an embeddable web player for their music. By default, it plays 30-second previews, but if a user signs in, they can play full tracks.

Here’s an example:

Click Preview to hear short previews – limited to 30 seconds, not the 90-second previews you can hear on the iTunes Store – or click Sign In to be able to listen to the entire album.

While this is not a fully functional web player, it suggests that Apple may roll out a web interface for Apple Music in the future, extending the service’s reach to all platforms.

  1. Kirk, Interesting. I have the code to play this “preview” audio dynamically in a project I worked on, musosis. However it would be cool to to enable “Apple Music” login and play the entire song via the player. In short musosis has a much more accurate and powerful search engine, enable searches by “Producer”, “Vocalist”, “Country of origin”, returning results that apple music and spotify don’t do, even with 15 times the catalog. 😉
