TECH BYTE: Apple Launches New Features for Music Fans

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — If you love live music and going to concerts, you’re going to love some of Apple’s newest features.

Apple has just launched some new perks geared toward music fans.

The concert discovery features are on Apple Maps and Music.

The tech company says these features give fans and artists more ways to connect.

Maps now has more than 40 new guides, highlighting select music venues around the world that are worth checking out.

Apple Music editors put them all together.

If you’re looking to take a trip out of town, and want to see a show, look no further.

The more than 10 cities featured include Nashville, Chicago, and New York in the U.S., along with places like London and Tokyo overseas.

There are two guides for Nashville, for example.

One focuses on “The Nashville Music Venues Locals Love,” and the other highlights “Essential Nashville Music Venues.”

These guides are great ways to discover new venues, and even artists you’ve never heard of!

They also allow fans to browse those venues’ upcoming shows.

As for Apple Music, there’s a new space for Set Lists.

Just like the name, it shares set lists from some major ongoing tours, that way you can prepare for your next concert!

Right now, they include Kane Brown’s Drunk or Dreaming Tour, and Ed Sheeran’s Mathematics Tour.

Set Lists for each artist show you how many songs they perform, and about how long the concert is.

You can also use this new feature to check out upcoming concerts on Shazam’s website, explore artists’ catalogs, and sometimes even read about the productions.

The good news is no Apple Music subscription is needed to take advantage of the Set Lists feature.
