Apple Music student subscription service reaches 82 new markets

Apple is bringing its Student subscription-based model of Apple Music platform to new countries. The Tim Cook-led firm has announced the launch of the service to as many as 82 new markets. This means the service will be available to nearly all the regions that have Apple Music.

The firm says that the Apple Music student membership plan will be reaching to 79 markets already and will be hitting the remaining three markets by February 26. Some of the countries where the service is available include Israel, Malaysia, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal and Taiwan.
For those wondering, Apple already launched the Music Student membership plan in India back in November 2016. Usually, the individual members will cost you Rs 120 per month while the family membership, which allows up to six members, will cost them Rs 190 per month. For students, the individual membership costs Rs 60 per month.

It is worth adding that since its arrival in 2015, Apple Music has gained over 36 million subscribers in 115 countries.

For student’s membership, Apple has teamed up with UNiDAYS, which in turn has tie up with several colleges in order to verify students. The particular plan will exist for four years.

Apple’s expansion of students’ membership in 82 new prove to be a huge boost, letting it inch closer to its main rival – Spotify, which recently claimed to have 70 million paid subscribers in the US as compared to Apple’s 36 million paid subscribers. The company, according to a report from earlier this month by AFP, said it gained 10 million paid subscribers since its last update in July 2017. Although Apple Music is closing the gap, it still has a lot to catch up before it becomes a ‘threat’ to Spotify.
