One of the ways Apple helps artists promote their music through Apple Music is with a web-based player. This web player lets web developers embed the widget onto websites, which means that artists can share it on their website where visitors get to preview their songs via streaming.

However the only problem is that the web player only allowed previews to be played, but the good news is that has changed. In a post on Reddit (via 9to5Mac) by user fani123q, they discovered that the interface for the web player has been updated where it will now include a sign-in option.

“Ok so sometimes I use the Apple Music tools website to search a playlist that isn’t available in search (like some playlist of Skam or Norwegian rap). But this time I noticed that the player design changed a bit and after listening to a song (preview mode of 30s) I got the message asking me to log in Apple Music.”

Upon signing in and assuming you have an active Apple Music subscription, it will let users play full-length songs and albums from the web player itself. This might come in handy if you’re on a computer that doesn’t have iTunes but you want to access Apple Music. The changes are already live so if you’re someone who uses Apple Music, it could be worth taking a look at.
