The company is offering a three-month free trial service for users to test the service, post which one will have to pay for it. US subscribers will have to pay $9.99 per month or $14.99 per month for a family account. In India, subscribers will have to pay Rs 120 per month for individual accounts, while a family account (up to six members) is priced at Rs 190 per month.

The main feature of Apple Music is  a catalogue of millions of songs and music videos to stream on-demand, as well as a wide variety of programmed playlists created by its in-house team of editors, and by musicians. Apple Music has been specifically designed to tailor the needs of the user .

Another part of Apple Music is  a 24 hour  internet radio station called Beats  1 headed by former BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe

There’s another feature called Connect. It basically allows the  artists to upload music , photos  and messages  for their fans,  just like a blog to which the fans can subscribe to.
