Apple Music for Artists exits beta and gets app with more data

About a year and a half ago, we talked here about the Apple Music for Artists, a platform then recently created by Apple that aimed to connect Apple Music artists to the performance of their content – that is, an easy way to access the statistics of their work on the Apple platform.

Until then, Apple Music for Artists was only available in beta and accessible only by a limited number of artists selected on a web page. Now, that changes: Apple released the final version of the tool – entitled to an iOS app!

Apple Music for Artists

With the news, any artist or producer who publishes content on Apple Music can enter the platform and check the statistics about their music. You can view information about play count, daily listeners, audience reach, geographic data, age range, inclusions in playlists, iTunes Store music purchases, video viewing, and more.

One of the recent innovations of Apple Music for Artists is the integration with Shazam: with it, artists and producers can see where their music is most frequently identified. Apple counts data on its content from the launch of Apple Music in 2015, to the most recent 24 hours.

Notably, however, it is not possible to cross data: due to Apple’s privacy policy, it is not possible, for example, to see how many young people between 18 and 25 years old listen to their music in Brazil. Statistics can be checked only on an individual basis, even.

All data can be checked on the platform’s web interface and also on the iOS app, which can be obtained by logging in with your iTunes Connect account on this page – or by creating your profile via the same link. Enjoy!
