    I have been a Spotify user for a long time and I cant wait to use Apple Music. Mostly because I can save my playlists and sync them with my Apple Watch.

    I save my Spotify songs too, but there is no way to get them on anything other than the phone in the Spotify app.

    So who else is excited and why?

    I don't generally use Music streaming, but I do think Apple Music is going to explode in popularity.
    The fact that they've made it available on Android too almost guarantees it.

    If we could set up playlist I might like it. But not for $9.99 a month. Apple wants all our money! That price tag takes excitement out if it for me.

    I'm rather "meh" about the whole streaming music thing. I'd call my interest at this point more of a morbid curiosity. I can't see myself spending $10/month to listen to music that I already own.

    It is no different than the other services... I pay $9.99 per month now for Spotify so I can have offline music and no adds.

    I don't pay for Spotify. I use the free version. I use my $, instead, to buy more songs. I don't have many.

    Not "excited" as much as I am just curious. I'm much looking more forward to what 8.4 contains besides Apple Music.

    How will 8.4 affect the music I currently have? Do I lose my iTunes radio stations I have picked out even if I don't want Beats 1? What happens to my music library if songs I have paid for? I don't do iTunes Match.

    I don't want streaming music if it uses cellular data. Much of my use of listening to my few songs is with a Bluetooth headset in my car. Will I have to have iTunes Match to hear the songs in my library?

    You can definitely set up playlists and use them offline. You will have your radio stations just like you do in iTunes Radio and now you can set up playlists from songs in iTunes and save those offline as well.

    First it doesn't use that much data, even less for the folks that have T-mobile because T-mobile doesn't count streaming music against your data plan. Second what you own, you own. Download and play your music library as you always have ...

    I am not exactly sure how iTunes Match fits in with Apple Music. You don't need it to set up playlists though. You have access to the whole iTunes library with Apple Music so I don't see why you need iTunes Match unless you have music not found on iTunes that you want to access anywhere. Maybe a concert or something that would not be found on iTunes.

    As long as I can play my purchased songs offline and am not required to have iTunes Match I'm good.

    I'm not paying $9.99 each month for streaming music. I just want things like they are. And I don't care about Beats 1 with some hip hop DJ.

    As long as you physically store things from your iTunes library on your device, the rest doesn't matter...

    Then don't pay it. Sounds like you just want to play your music and only your music. That's fine. You can do that and don't have to subscribe to a thing. Save your music to your device and you can play it from there. You won't need any subscription for that.

    I'm not excited one bit. I won't even try out the three months free. I have never paid for any streaming services and i'm not about to start now.

    I can't remember the last time I listened to music on my iPhone either, to be honest.

    Back in the UK, I have in excess of 40,000 songs ripped to my computer from CDs. I spent several months ripping them after I got out of hospital a few years back after a serious motorbike accident and had to sit very still and recuperate, so had nothing better to do. My musical tastes are pretty eclectic and I guarantee that I have everything I need already on my computer for when I want to listen to music, which I do pretty much whenever i'm sat there, if i'm not watching a movie (I ripped all my DVDs too).

    Now of course I am based out here in Los Angeles and I brought a terabyte of music with me on a hard drive which I had added to the NAS on my buddy's system so I can stream it to my shiny new Mac or his hifi system from that. The Amp on his hifi cost him $10,000 and the bass speaker alone cost him $15,000, to give you some idea of the sort of insanely high quality kit we have here.

    I don't listen to music whilst I am out as I am either driving in an unfamiliar city and want to devote all my attention to that (a shame a lot of other drivers here in LA don't do the same as i've seen some shameful displays of 'driving') or I am otherwise busy.
