Apple has addressed concerns with its streaming music acknowledging that there is still 'a bit of homework to be done', reports The Guardian. While Apple Music has garnered good reviews for its curated playlists, it has been criticized for its user interface and music library bugs.
“There’s a lot of work going into making the product better. Our focus is on editorial and playlists, and obviously we have teams all around the world working on that, but we’re also adding features and cleaning up certain things,” Oliver Schusser, vice president, iTunes International, told the Guardian. “Apple Music Connect is growing big-time with more and more artists connecting to their fans, but we still have a bit of homework to be done for the rest of the year.”
When asked about usability concerns, Schusser said, “The product is always our priority, and we are getting a lot of feedback. Remember, this was a very big launch in 110 markets instantly, so we get a ton of feedback. We’re obviously trying to make it better every day.”
Notably, Schusser confirmed that the Apple Music will launch for Android and become Sonos compatible "this fall", saying, "we still have some work to do there, but that’s coming".
The company is preparing for its renamed Apple Music Festival this September in London and it plans to launch a new advertising campaign to promote the service.
