If you own an LG smart TV running on webOS 4.0 or higher, you will soon be able to enjoy the Apple Music app for streaming and listening to music. The Apple Music app will be available to download from LG’s Content Store in available regions. The UI design and navigation will be visually similar to the Apple Music app for Apple TV. Apple subscribers can directly sign in to the app and gain access to over 90 million songs, 30,000 curated playlists, and live radio. The app also lets you watch music videos in 4K resolution.
Budding bathroom singers can enjoy its time-synced lyrics feature, which enables you to sing along by watching the lyrics on the big screen. Also, it would be a nifty feature to have, when you have friends over at your place.
LG, the South Korean consumer electronics giant is looking to attract users from Apple’s ecosystem with this announcement. Similarly, for Apple, this move would expand its reach of Apple’s services on non-Apple hardware, thus providing them with an alternative to other popular apps. Owners of LG webOS TVs can try the service for free for the first three months. However, LG is yet to release a detailed list of LG TV models that support the Apple Music app. Owners can find out if they have a supported TV by simply searching for ‘Apple Music’ in the LG Content Store. The latest generations of LG TVs should support it without any issues.

Talking about the music experience on the LG smart TVs, it will be almost similar to iPhone, iPad, Mac, HomePod, and Android TVs. However, it remains to be seen if Apple’s popular Lossless Audio and Dolby Atmos with Spatial Sound would be supported by the LG smart TVs. Apple’s library consists of over 75 million songs in lossless audio quality in high bitrate 24-bit at 192KHz. It will be a major let-down for audiophiles if these features are not supported on the LG TVs.
