Transferring playlists between multiple music services is easy until you attempt to do it manually. Instead of having to painstakingly recreate your personal, carefully curated Apple Music playlists on another music-streaming service like Spotify or YouTube, or vice versa, you can just use an app to get the job done.
Apple reportedly held talks about investing in the financially-challenged iHeartMedia, the largest US radio group, in a deal that could give its music-streaming service a major advantage over rivals such as Spotify and Pandora.
Apple has acquired San Francisco-based music analytics startup Asaii which uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to help clients like record labels find the next Justin Bieber. Apple will reportedly use their technology to bolster Apple Music recommendations to users and better compete with Spotify’s efforts to work directly with smaller artist.
In the works since at least 2014, the all-stock transaction will see the ad-supported Pandora service, as well as the company’s Plus and Premium subscriptions, continue unabated without changing pricing.
