A lot of Apple Music users might be still expecting for an official Apple Music Web Player. But over these years, there is no clear indication that Apple has the plan to launch a web player or something like that. So if you still want to play Apple Music content on the web, here are the unofficial options that you can try at this time.
How do I know which tool to choose? Don't worry. I've pulled together a list of my top 5 Apple Music Web Players of 2019 and I hope this can help you find the best one for streaming Apple Music through any web browser.
Maeve is created by a software engineer called An Tran. The reason why he decided to make a web player for Apple Music is simple - he was using Linux at working and he couldn't install iTunes to listen to Apple Music. So, if you are looking for a way to listen to Apple Music songs without downloading iTunes, Maeve is a great choice.
What I Like about Maeve
Fantastic tool to manage Apple Music collection: It has a useful navigation panel that lets you browse and access all music sections easily, including For You, Chart, Last.fm, Album, Playlist, Songs, etc. With Maeve, you can create playlists, search playlist, shuffle play music and repeat songs.
It offers an interactive map that allows you to check out the top 100 charts by country or genre.
Customizable themes: You can select the preset themes, or you can create a personalized theme by yourself.
Last.fm integration: Once connecting to Last.fm in Settings, you can scrobble your music to Last.fm easily.
Artists/Songs blocking: If you don't like the artists or songs, just block them and they will be filtered out of any playlist you play.
Lyrics from Genius: You can view the lyrics in different modes: in a pop-up or in a full screen.
Musish is an open-source Apple Music web player created by 4 developers: Brychan Bennett-Odium, aphaël Vigée, James Jarvis, and Filip Grebowski. It has a clean and intuitive interface that looks like it is designed by Apple.
What I Like about Musish
It is available on any computer that can run a web browser. You can use it on a computer which is running macOS, Windows or Linux.
Similar to Maeve, Musish offers you the For You, Browse and My Library sections which show you your recently played tracks, the top 100 playlists and recently added tracks, artists, albums, songs and playlists, etc.
It also features a mini player that lets you play, shuffle, and repeat song easily and lets you see lyrics as well.
Different from Meave, Musish provides you with 2 kinds of streaming quality: High (256 kbps) and standard (64kbps).
Apple Music Toolbox is an unofficial web client for Apple Music. It doesn't look like a proper web player but it's still quite useful when it comes to streaming Apple Music through browser.
It has the search box which lets you find out the song you like by searching for the name of the song, artist, album or playlist.
You can add songs to your library, copy song link, embed album and share music with Apple Music Toolbox.
However, this tool cannot be recognized as a full-feature web player because there are lots of functions not included in it. It can only offer you the basic function of playing songs on web or adding songs to a library and save playlist.
ThinMusic is an Apple Music web player created by Anant Narayanan. It is another tool that lets you play Apple Music songs, albums and playlists from all modern browsers.
You can browse the top playlists and search whatever songs you like in the Apple Music library. You can scrobble songs to Last.fm.
What’s more, you can add the songs into queue and play them in different way: shuffle play, play next, play last, etc.
Zachary Seguin Music has the similar functions as the tools we mentioned above. It lets you view top charts, search music, add songs to queue, and select music playback quality (standard is 64 kbps and high is 256 kbps).
That's it, the above are the top 5 Apple Music Web Players that you can use to stream Apple Music song through a web browser. Which one do you like best? If you have other great options, tell us in the comments!
