Apple Music coming after a Reboot

Apple launched its music subscription named Apple Music service in June 2015.The company had also owned Beats music to increase the quality of the music. The music service came up with many features including 24×7 beats radio station, playlists, offline mode, 30 million songs library and the option to link with existing iTunes. It also offered a three-month free trial followed by paid subscription.

It had not gone very successful and got a mixed response from the users. Many of the subscribers had opined that the music app is lacking the hallmark of great Apple products. The major drawbacks of the music app are the complicated user interface and the linking of the new iTunes library to the existing one.

The drawbacks may be a result of the cultural clash between the current employees and the Beats music crew. Many of the Staff had left Apple due to some reasons which partially stopped the Tech giant to reach its goal of becoming the world leader in music services.

Apple is reportedly planning some significant changes in the user interface by redesigning and taking possible steps to make it user-friendly. The updated version may include some special features like publishing lyrics along with the song and gave a bolder theme. Apple is in talks with the music publishers about the same.

About one-third of the team who are behind Siri app left Apple differing them regarding the functionalities of Siri. Now all of them are under one roof working for the new project. The concept of Viv was started in 2003 and its functionality is far better than the Siri.

Viv is built on Siri’s foundation but it is even more powerful because of its Artificial Intelligence technology. It can do various things and go well ahead of the apple’s assistant regarding performance. The new AI assistant would more flexible and would give the feel of a human assistant. It was developed with a vast database along with the significant partnerships of third party services.

The theme behind the making of Viv is to make users connected with businesses and service providers without any typing just by giving voice-based commands. It can do a lot of works like ordering a pizza, flowers or booking a cab. It would read out a lot of options available and gives the user the option to choose.

Siri’s creators Dag Kittlaus and Adam Cheyer had integrated these kinds of functionalities in Siri but later trimmed by the Apple management as they have different views. They are planning to avail Viv to various platforms as a part of their goals and they don’t want to repeat the mistake of selling it to others as they have done in the case of Siri.

It is reportedly known that Facebook and Google had already trying to own Viv due to its high potential. The developers of Viv are still working on the new technology and want their new assistant inside TV’s and cars. More information would pop out soon as Viv would be revealed to the world on May 9 at an event called Major Industry Conference.
