Did you subscribe to the Apple Music trial?
The iOS update that allows you to take advantage of the newest music streaming service on the market already started hitting your iPhones and iPads the other day. The revamped Apple Music app comes as part of the fresh iOS 8.4 version, and is accompanied by the new Beats 1 curated radio station, the Connect music social network, and other audiophile favorites.

We already showed you how does Apple Music stack up against some of the more popular competing music streaming services, how to change the new Connect tab with the good ol' Playlists, and how to save those playlists for offline listening. We also showed you how to keep using Apple Music even after the free trial expires, but are actually wondering how many of you did subscribe for the trial at all. Granted, Apple gives you the option to uncheck the automatic charging of your account after the trial expires, and will probably warn you if you want to continue using it when time nears, too. 

Still, some of you might be happy with just using iTunes, the Beats 1 live station, and the Connect music social network for free, or are content with their current streamer, be it Spotify or something else. Take your pick and tell us what you think about Apple Music so far in the comments.

I enrolled but Apple music is missing one very important thing right now - years worth of user created playlists. It will need time to grow and may have my monthly fee in the future.

I have to agree with you on this one. One huge advantage of spotify is user created playlists and the free tier. The free tier means anyone can create play lists. I follow a bunch of user created playlists but see this growing on apple music in the future. For now though this is a big leg up to Spotify.

I think PA should change the way they conduct polls....they shouldn't count votes from those devices that have nothing to do with the poll.

Theres no point in asking anything apple related on this website. Theres barely any Apple people that can handle the consistent trolling here.

I currently have Spotify Premium and the only thing that would entice me to move to Apple Music is when Apple Music has an official app on Android and they have playlists and moods as good as Spotify.

Not all countries are blessed with Google Play Music, Spotify, or any other streaming service, the only available option in Indonesia today is Apple Music. So yeah, I'm taking it for a spin, and probably will keep it on once the 3-month honeymoon is over. For $5/month it's a hell of a bargain to be able to download, listen, delete/keep whatever music you can find in iTunes. I know not all songs in iTunes store repository will be available on Apple Music, but for what is it is still a huge library.

Wrong, actually there are 2 music streaming service in indonesia. Guvera (which is bad) and Rdio (which is good). If you think $5 is 'a hell of a bargain' then you should try Rdio, it's around $3 with a library as extensive as apple music (30Million)
