Apple Music for Artists has just released their beta. Ostensibly “everything you need to understand your music’s impact across Apple Music and iTunes,” Apple Music for Artists seems to be the next great change for the platform.
The beta will offer a quick snapshot of your music’s overall performance, identify milestones and all-time bests at a glance, and aims to expand your understanding with details of trends over time. Though, the new analytical dashboard was first revealed earlier in the year, it hasn’t been completely opened to the public. Apple Artists can reserve their spot in the beta now.
It seems that with Apple Music for Artists, artists will learn which playlists are driving the most plays and gain access to listener demographics. This is a big step in the right direction for Apple Music, especially given that competitor Spotify already offers extensive analytical tools for artists. It is unclear whether there is a cap for the amount of beta testers or not. However, it is clear that Apple is continuing to roll out this new feature.
