Apple Music Classical Launches In Asian Countries Including China, Japan, Korea, More
Apple has this week pushed its Apple Music Classical app and service live in some Asian countries including China and Japan, according to reports.
Other countries that can now enjoy Apple Music Classical include South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao.
Apple had previously said that it intended to roll its classical music streaming service out to additional countries and it has now done so after launching in the United States and other countries in March of 2023.
The app allows Apple Music subscribers to access more than 5 million classical music tracks including high-quality versions. The app also provides curated playlists for people who want something new to listen to. Overall, the app is similar to the Apple Music app but has tweaks designed to better display information about each track including composer, work, conductor, catalog number, and more.
“We love music — that’s really what we’re all about — and classical music is foundational to music of all genres,” Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats said back in March 2023.
“Apple Music Classical is a dedicated app that is great for classical experts as well as anyone who is new to classical, with the largest classical music selection in the world, the very best search and browse capabilities, the most premium sound experience with Spatial Audio, and thousands of exclusive recordings. We believe this is the very best classical music streaming experience available anywhere, and for us, this is just the beginning.”
Those who are in the Asian countries mentioned above can now download Apple Music Classical from their respective App Stores.
