The prominent rivals of Apple’s music app would be Spotify and Music Key, which is YouTube’s live music streaming app. Both these apps are very popular amongst the users and provide similar service on the same rate. In the India market the most popular live music streaming apps are Gaana, Saavn, Hungama and others. To subscribe to Saavn, users have to pay about 220 INR per month and 125 INR for Gaana. Therefore, if Apple wants its live music streaming app to be a hit in India, then it had to provide service at a lesser price.
Even it in the western countries Apple’s music app is going to come face cutthroat competition from other music streaming apps that has become really popular amongst the users. Apps like Tidal are really popular amongst the smartphone users of the western countries. These apps are owned by artists like Rihanna and Beyonce and subscribers have access to exclusive videos and other contents which is not available anywhere else. Therefore, Tidal is definitely going to give Apple’s music app tough competition.
However, we must not ignore the fact that Apple already has access to huge data base. So it will be easier for it to infiltrate into the market. However, they must ensure to provide the users with flawless service to attract more users. Recent reports shows that the live music streaming service has taken over CD industry in no time and it is going to be bigger than the music download industry as well.
