Apple_Apple-Music-Up-Next-Live_King-Princess_070119_carousel.jpg.large

 

Apple today announced Up Next Live, a series of intimate performances from past and present Apple Music Up Next artists including Bad Bunny, Daniel Caesar, Khalid, Ashley McBryde, King Princess, Lewis Capaldi and Jessie Reyez. Each artist will perform for fans in one city, for one night only.
Apple Music Up Next is a monthly program showcasing the best new artists in the world. Each month, Apple Music tastemakers and editors identify one artist to feature, then utilize the power of the platform to raise awareness of that artist to Apple Music’s growing audience of music fans. Apple Music Up Next also includes a deeply curated companion playlistfull of incredible new artists across genres from all over the world.
Each artist on the diverse Up Next Live roster has been featured as an Apple Music Up Next artist in the monthly program or through the playlist. All shows will be hosted after hours in local Apple stores in Milan, San Francisco, Brooklyn, Paris, London, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Apple stores frequently offer free creative sessions through Today at Apple and serve as the place where the local creative community can come together and share ideas, making them the perfect backdrop for Up Next Live. Performances kick off July 9 with global sensation Bad Bunny at Apple Piazza Liberty in Milan.
“The impact [of being part of Up Next] can be seen in everything, in numbers, in plays, in shows,” said Bad Bunny. “There are a lot of fans that, when I go out in the street in the US, people who do not speak Spanish, I think they will not know me and they stop me, they ask me for pictures and they sing my songs. It helped me very much to make myself known in a market different from mine, not only the USA, but in places where Spanish is not spoken or where perhaps Latin music does not dominate, exposing my music and giving people the opportunity to get to know what I do.”

How to set a sleep timer on your iOS

There are various habits before going to bed for sleep. Someone maybe do some reading, and someone would like to listen to music songs before going to sleep. Soothing music is good and helpful for sleep.

The process to use the sleep time to set the playing time is very simple. Start playing some music files, set a timer and watch or listen until you doze off. After the set time has elapsed, the playback will end and, in some cases, the device will power off.

Step 1. Launch the Music app, and start listening to Beats 1 radio or the songs available on Apple Music.

Step 2. Now launch the Clock app from your iPhone or iPad’s Home screen.

Step 3. Tap the Timer tab.

Step 4. Select the time after which you want Apple Music or Beats 1 radio to stop playing using the picker.

Step 5. Tap on When Timer Ends.

Step 6. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the screen.

Step 7. Tap Stop Playing from the list of options.

Step 8. Tap Set at the top right corner.

Step 9. Tap Start to activate the sleep timer.

Set Sleep time on iPad

The sleep timer will start and will automatically turn off Apple Music or Beats 1 radio after the time set by you. If you take on an average half an hour to fall asleep, then set the Sleep timer for 30 minutes.

Please note that if you need to change it back to one of the Ringtones if you want to get an alarm when the timer ends, for the sleep timer isn’t a separate timer.

Spotify is building shared-queue Social Listening

Spotify appears to be testing a “Social Listening” feature that lets friends control the music together. This is similar-ish to its collaborative playlist feature, but it contains a real-time component. The idea is that collaborators are listening to the same songs, together — whether physically in the same room, or apart.

Software engineer Jane Manchun Wong, who is known for discovering unreleased app features by digging through code, recently spotted the feature and posted about it on Twitter. Manchun Wong found the feature buried in Spotify’s Android app code, which she combs through for “clues” of what the company is working on.

While Manchun Wong has found her way in, Social Listening is currently only available to Spotify employees. You can see screenshots of the feature in her tweets below.

Spotify-Social-Listening

A help screen describes Social Listening as “Listen to music together. 1. On your phone, play a song and select (Connected Devices). You’ll see a code at the bottom of the screen. 2. On your friend’s phone, select the same (Connected Devices) icon, tap SCAN CODE, and point the camera at your code. 3. Now you can control the music together.” You’ll then see friends who are part of your Social Listening session listed in the Connected Devices menu. Users can also copy and share a link to join their Social Listening session that starts with the URL prefix https://open.spotify.com/socialsession/. Note that Spotify never explicitly says that playback will be synchronized.

Spotify-Listen-With-Friends

With streaming apps largely having the same music catalog and similar $9.99 per month premium pricing, they have to compete on discovery and user experience. Spotify has long been in the lead here with its algorithmically personalized Discover Weekly playlists, which were promptly copied by Apple and SoundCloud.
