Hello Sieghard.

I did not know that one could purchase an entire year of Apple Music, at once.  
If this is the case, then I will definitely be subscribing to it as I prefer an 
annual subscription to a monthly one.  

Okay, I'll look into it as HomePod is, for whatever reason, my preferred music 
playback speaker.  There's just something about that rich, elegant, 
sophisticated sound that it emits.  

Thank you, my friend.

Mark

Hi Mark,

I know there are a lot of replies to your message and I haven't read them. 
However, let me say this, you bought the HomePod and said you enjoy it a lot. 
Do yourself a favour and buy the Apple Music subscription, I believe if you 
prepay for the entire year it is cheaper than $9.99 a month or maybe it's that 
you can buy a gift card for a 1-year subscription for a reduced price. If you 
like the HomePod as much as you said this will give you absolutely the best 
experience bar none. Being able to simply tell your HomePod what you want to 
listen to beats using another app and Airplay in my humble opinion.

Regards,
Sieghard

Music for iOS?

Hello Everyone,

Okay, I know I said that I had no plans to subscribe to Apple Music, anytime 
soon but, well, let's just say I'm reconsidering this position.  

The primary reason why I didn't feel the need to subscribe to a music service 
is because, once upon a time, one could create custom radio stations based on 
artists, genres, a song title, etc, in iTunes.  Apparently, Apple has now 
restricted this functionality to only Apple Music subscribers.
(smart).

Before I take the subscription plunge, I would like to consider free 
alternatives if for no other reason but that I know that I will use the custom 
selection feature rarely.

So, is anyone using either the free version of either Pandora or Google Play 
Music for iOS?  If so, is it possible to create custom stations based on 
selected criteria?  

I'm probably going to end up subscribing to Apple Music but wanted to at least 
put this question out there, in the Ether (smile).

All replies greatly appreciated.

By the way, I'm still loving my HomePod.

Went over to a friend's house today to check out the Amazon Echo.  Wow!  I was 
extremely impressed.  

I think I'm going to pick up an Echo Dot and use it at least until my beloved 
Siri can catch up, as I truly think she will, in time-a very, very long, long 
time perhaps, (big smile).  Really enjoyed the audio games that Echo offers.

The way I see it, I will use HomePod for audio playback and personal contact 
features, as they become available, and Echo Dot for fun.  

Mark
