Apple launches Beats 1 radio station

Apple music has launched its own music streaming service and it will change the way you experience music.

Apple will be combining your I-Tunes library along with millions of other tracks that you will be able to stream or listen to offline.

The technology giants will  also be making personalised playlists for the user, the same way Spotify do at the moment.

Along with the streaming service the music website will also be launching Beats 1, which will be a 24-hour global radio station, and will be run by three different DJs from three different cities.

The former Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe has been signed to run a station from LA.

Apple have also announced the innovative ‘Connect’ feature which will allow both established and up and coming artists, to communicate with their fans by uploading new tracks, posting behind-the-scenes photos, in- progress lyrics, and new remixes.

The music service is hoping to be able to beat Spotify’s streaming service within a year.
