Over time, new features will be implemented to the web page interface. More generally, the release may point to Apple's plans for Windows in a post-iTunes world.

The news comes ahead of the launch of Apple's new dedicated Apple Music app for Mac computers, which was unveiled earlier this year. Third, it puts the service more on the level of Spotify who has had a web-based UI for years. Playlists - including Apple's personalized "For You" recommendations - and Apple Music's radio stations will be available as part of the beta, too. Apple Music subscribers worldwide can visit and sign in with their Apple ID in order to use it.

Right now, Apple's UI is in beta, so things may be buggy. If you don't have an account yet, Apple is offering free trials.

Apple is starting to get the hang of what being a services company really means.

Now Apple's closing the gap between Apple Music and its competitors with an all-new web experience. At the bottom left is a link labeled "Open in Music", which takes opens the Music app or the iTunes app, depending on the operating system being used.

What Can I Do With Apple Music on the Web?

Apple launched a public beta of its music-streaming service on the web on Thursday.

We confirmed the web player works on several Macs and Android phones. It provides access to your Apple Music library and playlists, along with Apple content, including editor-curated playlists and algorithmically generated playlists like New Music Mix and My Chill Mix.

The "Up Next" queue is also here, and you can add and remove tracks from the queue, although at this point you can't reorder them.
