Apple Maps and Music Are Making it Easier to Find Concerts

Must read

Apple is rolling out a new feature for its Maps and Music apps that will make it easier for people to find concerts.

Apple Maps will now have over 40 curated "Guides" highlighting popular concert venues in 14 major cities worldwide. The inclusion of it is an expansion of Maps already curated Guides for things like food and shopping.

Apple Music will integrate Shazam's module, allowing users o browse upcoming shows for your favorite music artists. The press release notes that Apple Music will also introduce a new Set Lists space that "shines a light on a selection of major tours, letting fans listen to set lists," it offers users the option to read more about the productions.

Apple's decision to roll out concert-finding features is an interesting move that allows users in its ecosystem to stream music from their iPhones and use it to find upcoming shows. Of course, the feature itself is nothing new as Spotify, Apple's rival in the live music streaming market, has already been doing something similar. Spotify even takes it a step further by allowing you to buy tickets to a concert directly through its app, a feature that rolled out last August.

In comparison, Apple will connect you to ticket-sellers (most notably Ticketmaster) if you want to buy tickets for an upcoming concert. Both features are available today.
