Last year, Apple Music had a web version as a sort of a preview teaser until the actual service, Apple Music web went live. Today, the beta gets a refresh with new features, including the ‘Listen Now’ tab and more.

Big Sur macOS and iOS 14 users should be familiar with Listen Now as it replaced the ‘For You’ tab. Here, Apple extends its suggestions regarding playlists, albums and songs depending on the user’s music history and preferences.
