wwdc 2016 music redesign 2

The beautiful new design language in a revamped Apple Music is now a reality. According to Apple, the first tab within the app is now Library that gives you quick access to your songs as well as your downloaded music. A new Recently Added section makes it easy to pinpoint new songs and albums you’ve added to your library.

Apple Music now has inline lyrics, which is pretty awesome.

The top of the For You tab now has a Discovery mix, a Recently Played playlist, a daily curated playlist in an obvious shot at Spotify and more. Content from the Connect tab is now integrated within the For You tab rather than live in its own tab.

Unfortunately, even though the redesigned interface puts greater emphasis on larger photos and a redesigned Now Playing screen, there’s still too much of white space. Rumors leading up to the WWDC keynote said that Apple Music would switch to a darker interface.

What do you guys think so far?

Are you liking the new look for Apple Music? Does it feel rushed a bit? I’m still torn…

    It’s ugly , come on Apple

  • T. Allen

    Why not have Dre make an appearance? Does he even work there?

  • port87

    the presenter… cringeworthy

    • Sailor_V90

      Really? I thought she was cute!

    • How so? Her presentation or her looks? Most little boys can’t handle a real woman wit curves so i understand, but her presentation wasn’t bad at all either

      • Sailor_V90

        Me personally I meant both. She was attractive and the only presenter who didn’t seem forced and had some personality. But that’s just me.

    • Mr.Coolfreak

      the message presenters were cringeworthy

  • SkyFall

    They went from a pretty nice design to a design thats worse in every way… They could have kept the Blur and the colours and add the new features…
    And whats with the bold letters…

  • lemonhead

    this is like an all new design for old people

    The fonts are huge holy moly

  • Sailor_V90

    I’m not feeling The Music Update either

  • Jackson Grong

    I hate the new look, it’s pretty fine right now don’t know why they had to ruin it.

  • August Ebbesen

    God.. That was not necessary Apple.

  • Gregg

    Pretty liberal use of Arial Black, and in BOLD… Did anyone review this???

  • Kubaton

    I’m highly unimpressed. I want some usability features, such as an overlay to an album letting me know it’s already added to my library when I’m browsing for new music.

  • hush

    I don’t feel like this is going to help me navigate easier. Looks ok and I guess I’ll get used to it.

  • The bold! It’s so… So damn bold!

  • Brandon

    looks more like the old Beats Music app than anything

    I don’t want a darker space. While I’m excited to get home and try the redesign, because Apple Music could use a redesign, I love the colors and white space. It’s pulled directly from the last version of the Zune desktop client. Seriously, look it up, it’s almost the exact same color scheme and feel. I’m excited they didn’t change it, but I do recognize I’m in the minority.
