Yes, and it's because all your streaming is based on your region. It's annoying, because I always like to go to random countries and see what's in their top 10.Tansike wrote:Anyone else got the problem that when you switch the country for your iTunes store and go back to yours, all the stuff you added to your library from apple music is gone?
A beta is when you release it to a select group for real-life testing....like Google are doing with their new version of the Marshmallow operating system.Oldmacs wrote:Everyone should remember that Apple Music is essentially still in beta...

Thus I said "Essentially In Beta". Spotify was also buggy at launch and so is just about every single other service. Personally I think Apple should have launched it with a beta tag. People also need to have some common sense when it comes to new software, wait 6 months for the bugs to be fixed and that usually does the trick.ShayLaB wrote:A beta is when you release it to a select group for real-life testing....like Google are doing with their new version of the Marshmallow operating system.Oldmacs wrote:Everyone should remember that Apple Music is essentially still in beta...

This was a full product, main stage stage announcement, no beta mentioned release of the app.
I have heard some horrible stories about how the track/artist matching in the library appears to work and it's no wonder there are issues. You have a song by an artist on a studio album and a live album...good luck with that.
It's just broken.
It will be fixed but it's clearly not ready.
Yes sure Apple should tell people, but people also need to have common sense not to download brand new software.... If you work in software you'll know that no matter how much testing is done bad coding gets through, as no testing can simulate actually being sued by a vast majority of people and some bugs will be mixed, especially when you're rolling out to the number of people Apple are. I have no doubt in my mind that Apple is fully responsible in providing software which is as finished as possible, but sometimes that is not possible, and thats where common sense about upgrades should kick in.Airwrecka wrote:The responsibility isn't with users to wait six months before downloading, it lies with Apple who need to fix their shit before they make the updates available, or else offer it as an optional beta with the relevant disclaimer.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/ ... r=yahootixFor many Apple users, October’s credit card statement will be the first that has a line on it for Apple Music. With the ninety-day free trial rolling over to a paid subscription, this is the key moment for Apple Music. Will people continue to stay subscribed to Apple’s model of a subscription music service? Has the service delivered enough value? Does it compare favourably to the current leading streaming players?
Personally, the answer is no.
Close to four months have passed since launch, and the Apple Music experience has not been improved in any substantial way. The package that Apple delivered out of the box was horribly mainstream, with a huge focus on popular artists. In my time exploring the playlists and radio it has been hard to find niche music in the package. Having seen countless people set up their Apple Music profile when they were forced to move to the updated Music app in iOS 8.4, I’d be confident that every single Apple Music user was offered Taylor Swift as a musical recommendation. Those bubbles forced mainstream pop music recommendation into everyone’s system, so is it any wonder I’m offered Katy Perry, One Direction, and Miley Cyrus, when a quick glance through my music collection would show that a focus on more Progressive Rock and East European Dance music would be more appropriate?
Apple Music still hasn’t worked this out. Why is it not using the data it can collect to better effect?
Just as the Apple Music recommendations have not been updated, the actual application itself has not seen any major changes. Beyond fighting the huge firestorm of bugs that caused Apple Music, iTunes, and the iCloud Music Library to clash in the cloud-sync process with little clear information on what was going on, the application has maintained a steady state since launch.
