The best part about it is that the Voice plan will cost just $4.99/month instead of the $9.99/month users are paying for the individual plan. The Apple Music Voice Plan will be available later this fall in 17 countries and regions across the globe. The list includes the United States, Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. If you live in any of these countries then you can subscribe to the Apple Music Voice Plan.
To try out the services under this plan users can enjoy a 7-day free trial. Although the subscription cost is cheaper, users will get the same 90 million songs, thousands of playlists. Usually how one can subscribe to Apple Music, by going into the Apple Music app but as the Apple Music Voice Plan is exclusively for Siri users can subscribe to the plan through Siri as well. All they need to do is say ” Hey Siri, start my Apple Music Voice Trial” . That’s it Siri will activate the Voice plan on the user’s account. How cool is that? Of course one can also subscribe to it through the Apple Music app.
After subscribing to the Apple Music Voice plan users can request music on all the Siri-enabled devices like Homepod mini, AirPods, iPhone, iPad, and Mac and also through CarPlay. Apple will also add hundreds of new mood and activity playlists fully optimized for this new voice plan. You might be wondering what’s difference between the Voice and Individual plan is. The difference is you will lose out on premium features like Spatial Audio and Lossless Audio, Lyrics, and Music Videos.
Overall Apple Music Voice Plan is a nice attempt from Apple to lure more customers to Apple Music. Now the entry barrier is much cheaper and comparable to other music streaming services. But still, it will not be able to compete with the Spotify ad-supported plan which is absolutely free for the users. Along with this plan Apple also unveiled Homepod Mini in three new colours: Orange, Yellow, and Blue so now it will be available in a total of five colours.
