Apple announced its plan to launch a standalone app for streaming classical music, starting on March 28. The company aims to set itself apart from rivals like Spotify and other specialized platforms.
The app, called Apple Music Classical, will offer the largest collection of classical music in the world with five million tracks, exclusive albums, and advanced search functionality that is not available on other apps. The app will compete with other classical music streaming services, such as the subscription-based German platform Idagio.
Apple Music Classical will offer high-quality audio streaming, which is highly desirable for classical music enthusiasts. The app will be available to Apple Music subscribers at no extra cost and will soon be available on Android devices, according to the company.
