Apple has announced a second music streaming app, Apple Music Classical, which makes it easy to find different versions of a piece of classical music.
While Spotify introduced new features on Wednesday, March 8, particularly to highlight video content and podcasts, Apple Music was quick to respond in its own way.
The Cupertino company announced this Thursday a new streaming application specialized in classical music. Quite soberly named Apple Music Classical, it is intended above all for music lovers and will allow you to browse a library with a “premium classical music experience“According to the American firm. What to also face is the Qobuz hunting ground, historically linked to classical music.
The idea is therefore to allow users to easily find not only a title or a composer, but also the different interpretations with various recordings offered for each piece. Apple promises in particular to allow you to search for works by composer, but also by director or by catalog number. 5 million titles will be available when the app launches on March 28, including several thousand exclusive albums.
Files in HD quality and spatial audio
Of course, Apple Music Classical will also allow you to take advantage of Apple Music’s advanced features in terms of sound quality. Like its big sister, the application dedicated to classical music will offer high definition files, up to 192 kHz in 24 bits. It will also be possible to enjoy recordings made in spatial audio with head movement tracking.
The new Apple Music Classical app will be available for download starting March 28. To take advantage of it, all you have to do is sign up for a traditional Apple Music account. Please note, however, that the Apple Music Voice offer will not allow you to take advantage of the Apple Music Classical app. Finally, the application will not only be released on iPhone, but also on Android, in a second step.
