  • Apple Promotes New Apple Music API

    Today, Apple has introduced something big for developers who wish to allow Apple Music playback in their own apps. A new Apple Music API, which makes it possible now for developers to control Apple Music playback within their own applications which allows options to create a new playlist and offer a title description for good measure. It will also allow for the ability to add new songs to a queue.

    The new Apple Music API was initially introduced in iOS 9.3, and it’s already been built into some third-party music apps, like Shazam.

    Here’s what Apple says developers can expect:

    • Developers can see if a user is currently a member
    • Developers can see which country the users account is based
    • Developers can queue up the next song or songs based on a song ID for playback
    • Developers can inspect playlists already in My Music or create a new playlists with a title and description (see App Store Review Guidelines for limitation)

    Developers need to know that to use the API, the music player needs to be the standard media controls.

    There are a list of guidelines for developers to read over when considering using the new Apple Music API. You can find Apple’s dedicated page through the source link below.
