Apple Music Gaining 116 Global 'Top 100' Music Charts
Apple Music is introducing new top music charts for regional and global markets, reports Rolling Stone. Starting today, the music service will offer up 116 "Daily Top 100" charts that display the top-streamed songs on Apple Music.
Charts, which are refreshed each day at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time, are available for every country where Apple Music is available, plus there's a single global chart that aggregates the top songs worldwide.
Apple Music executives demonstrated the new feature for Rolling Stone, with the new charts located under the "Browse" tab with a visual appearance similar to playlists or albums.
The Apple Music service previously featured a Top Charts section in the Browse portion of the app, but it was limited to a select number of songs, playlists, albums, and videos with no breakdown by country.
It's not entirely clear exactly when the new top 100 charts will be available, but Rolling Stone mentions a software update, which suggests the feature is rolling out over the air. Access to the charts should be available soon.
