Six Months of Free Apple Music Available to PlayStation 5 Owners

As part of an effort to promote Apple Music on the PlayStation, Apple is offering PlayStation 5 owners up to six months of free access to the ‌Apple Music‌ streaming service.

apple music playstation 5
PlayStation 5 owners will need to sign into the PlayStation Network, download the ‌Apple Music‌ app, and follow the on-screen instructions to accept the offer. Users will need to sign in with an Apple ID or create one.

The PlayStation website suggests that gamers use ‌Apple Music‌ to create a personalized gaming playlist to listen to before, during, and after gameplay sessions.

The ‌Apple Music‌ promotion is only available on the PlayStation 5, and it has to be redeemed on a PlayStation 5 console. Only new and qualified returning subscribers to ‌Apple Music‌ can get free access, so this is not a deal that is available to current subscribers. New subscribers will receive six months of ‌Apple Music‌, while returning subscribers will get five months.

Apple will be offering the deal until 11/15/24. After the six-month period expires, a subscription can be continued for $10.99 per month.

Even free I would not switch from Spotify to AM. The way to discover new music and also to go to your favorites is perfect in Spotify. AM is barely releasing a way to mark songs as “favorite”!!!, I would need years to make that list from zero in AM, etc.
You are right about Spotify having much better discovery and recommendation engines.

But I don't really need such features as I listen to what I know. But when I do, I want the best possible audio quality and from time-to-time, enjoy music mastered in Dolby Atmos (particularly great for concerts). And as a classical music fan, I like Apple Music Classical experience.

Maybe others have had a different experience, but I personally find the Apple Music app on PS5 to be particularly sluggish, poorly designed/organized, and for whatever reason if I shuffle a playlist it will only play songs with titles that start with the letter A or B.

Cool promotion for those who are as of yet subscribed to the service, but if my first exposure to Apple Music was through PS5, I don't think my reception would have been particularly warm.
