Apple announces iTunes Radio streaming music service

At long last, Apple has announced their very own streaming music service. For the first time ever, Apple iTunes Radio, Cupertino’s own Spotify.

 Apple’s new iTunes Radio service is smart. It takes into account the type of songs that you download and listen to and recommends songs that you’ll most probably like (or love, as Apple promises). The new Radio service has access to all 26 million songs in the iTunes catalog and that is a lot (understatement).

iTunes Radio is an incredible way to listen to personalized radio stations which have been created just for you. It is the music you love most and the music you’re going to love, and you can easily buy it from the iTunes Store with just one click,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet software and services.

Apple iTunes Radio will be available more multiple platforms that include the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC and Apple TV. Another very attractive feature of iTunes Radio is that the service is absolutely free (ad-supported), with users having the option to pay $3.99 per month to get rid of the ads. In contrast, Google’s All Access feature will cost $9.99 per month (starting June 30) which makes Apple’s service far more attractive.

The all new iTunes Radio service will arrive in the US (only) later this year, probably coinciding with the release of iOS 7. We sincerely hope that Apple rolls out their new service worldwide soon (after the US release).
