If you’ve ever wanted to subscribe to Apple Music, this is probably a really good time to do so as Apple is now giving new Apple Music users a free subscription for 5 months through Shazam. This is essentially a part of Apple’s special holiday offer and will be available for users in Canada, Australian The US, a few other countries and finally, India. Do note that the offer is valid till 17 January, 2021.
To avail the offer all you have to do is download Shazam and use the app to identify a song which will then direct you to Apple Music where you can apply for the offer. Again, this is only available to new users. Current and existing users of Apple Music cannot avail this offer. This comes as no surprise as the holiday season is upon us and there will be other offers coming up as well.
Apple purchased Shazam in 2017 and folded the music identifying app into its own ecosystem. The standard offer for new users on Apple Music is a three-month trial period and have even created a new ‘Stream Local’ initiative to support Indian Music artists. You can read more about that here.
