Unleash the sound! Apple Music now has 100 million songs and comments on app improvements

Apple has just announced that Apple Music has just reached 100 million songs with its collection. To celebrate, the company is also commenting on improvements in two areas that are now being made to make their app even more interesting.

In a note, Apple says:

One hundred million songs.

Twenty-one years after the invention of iTunes and the debut of the original iPod, we’ve gone from 1,000 songs in your pocket to 100,000x that on Apple Music. It’s phenomenal growth by any metric. The entire history, present and future of music is at your fingertips or voice command.

Elsewhere in the statement, Apple notes that it is increasingly working on human curation for music recommendation, making its app better and better at recommending songs based on what you listen to.

This is not just an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come, but also a time to look forward to the work we have left to do. At Apple Music, human curation has always been at the core of everything we do, both in ways you can see and in our editorial playlists; and ways you can’t, like the human touch that drives our recommendation algorithms.

Now, more than ever, we know that investing in human curation will be key to making us the best at connecting artists and audiences.

With such a wide range of songs, we know you need someone there to guide you. Gone are the days of listening to the shuffle in your library: Now it’s up to us to help you discover new favorites and rediscover forgotten gems, whether it’s one of our expert radio hosts lighting your way, or a handcrafted playlist.

Another commented improvement involves Apple Music Today, which presents the story of creating a song and what it is about:

We also know that it is more important than ever that we are raising the voices of artists and providing opportunities for them to tell their own stories and contextualize their music. It’s not just about connecting artists and fans, it’s about making those connections deeper and more meaningful. And just one of the many ways we’re helping to provide context is through the new Apple Music Today series, where we’ll be picking up a new song every day and delving into its story, because we know that each of the 100 million songs in our catalog has your own story.

That way, every day Apple Music users can discover more about a song, which can become their favorite being more than just a sound, but also a story.

Finally, it is also highlighted how Apple Music has popularized music to its users in 167 regions of the world.

In the 1960s, only 5,000 new albums were released each year. Today, anywhere in the world, in Apple Music’s 167 countries and regions, any artist of any description can write and record a song and release it globally. Every day, more than 20,000 singer-songwriters are delivering new music to Apple Music — songs that make our catalog even better than it was the day before. A hundred million songs are evidence of a more democratic space, where anyone, even a new artist making music out of their bedroom, can have the next big thing.

It is worth remembering that Apple Music is also receiving more news in beta version on Android, including functions that until now were only available on iOS 16.
