Apple Music now supports streaming audio on iPhone and iPad through an iOS device, Apple announced today.
The iOS 8 update includes support for downloading music, downloading music tracks, and the ability to listen to audio directly from an Apple Music album.
Users can now stream music from their iPhone, and they can listen to music directly from a Apple Music library on an iPad, too.
Apple Music is now compatible with all iOS devices running iOS 8.2 or later, including the iPhone, the iPad, the iPod touch, and Macs.
The new feature is an extension of the iTunes Music app, which now also includes a new feature called “downloads.”
Users can choose from the “Playlist” section of the iOS 8 iTunes app, then swipe left or right on the list of songs to download them directly from Apple Music.
Apple says this feature will be available for the iPhone X in the next few weeks.
Other new features include support for multiple Apple Music accounts and the option to switch between multiple accounts when the music service is first launched.
Users will also be able to “lock” a song and play it while in a different Apple Music account, but Apple Music says this is a one-time option.
Users can now listen to podcasts in Apple Music by using Siri or the built-in music player on the iPhone.
Apple says it has already worked on iOS 8 support for streaming music in other apps like Spotify, Pandora, and Rdio.
The company will roll out support for music in the future.
Apple announced last week that it plans to open up all of Apple Music’s catalog of songs in a single app, called the App Store, and then launch a new music service later this year.
