Apple had its second autumn event of the year recently, where it unveiled new M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs, as well as all-new MacBook Pros and AirPods 3. During the high-profile event, Apple also unveiled the “Voice Plan,” a lower-cost version of Apple Music.
Despite that it costs half as much as an individual Apple Music subscription, it still gives you access to the whole 90 million-song database.
The Apple Music Voice Plan is explained in detail here. Let’s get into it!!
A Brief Guide on the Apple Music Voice Plan
The new Apple Music Voice Plan is part of a new Apple Music subscription tier. Users will have access to the complete Apple Music collection of 90 million songs as part of the plan. If you use Siri, Apple’s voice-based assistant, to play music on your HomePod, AirPods, or iPads, the proposal makes a lot of sense. Subscribers can request playlists, songs, and radio stations from Siri. You must subscribe to the individual plan if you want Spatial audio.
What’s the caveat?
While the Apple Music Voice Plan, which costs Rs 49 per month, appears to be enticing, there is one catch: customers can only use it with Siri and their voice. When you sign up for the new Apple Music Voice Plan, you’ll get access to a section of the app called “Just Ask Siri,” where you can learn how to use voice commands to interact with Apple Music. In reality, only consumers with the ‘Voice Plan’ have access to the Apple Music app, which got considerably altered. To listen to Adele’s new single “Easy on Me,” for example, you must ask Siri to play the music rather than typing the artist’s or song’s name. The idea is to increase Siri’s usage.
How much do I have to pay for the “Voice Plan”?
Apple Music Voice Plan costs Rs 49 per month in India. Individual subscriptions to Apple Music cost Rs 99 per month, while family subscriptions cost Rs 149 per month. Students can get a cheaper plan for Rs 49 per month.
Which devices support the new Apple Music Voice Plan?
Any Apple device with Siri should use the Apple Music Voice Plan. It’s compatible with iPhones, iPods, AirPods, Macs, HomePods, Apple TVs, and CarPlay.
Where is the plan available?
Later this fall, the Apple Music Voice Plan will be available in 17 countries, including India, Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Is there a trial?
Yes. Non-subscribers can test the Apple Music Voice Plan for free for seven days with no auto-renewal.
The Bottom Line
Keep in mind that on an Apple Music Voice Plan, you cannot utilize the Apple Music app to manually adjust your listening experience, as you can on other subscription tiers. That is because the Apple Music app for Voice Plan members has a different user experience. It now only displays music recommendations and your recent listening history.
