[MUSIC] Apple Music has finally arrived. If you don't have it on your iOS device yet, head to settings, followed by general, and click on software update. You will need to be on iOS Version 8.4 for it to work. One of the coolest things about Apple Music is the Siri integration. You can use the virtual assistant to play songs from specific days, years and even movies. Here's a few of my favorite commands. Wanna play the top songs from a specific era? Try play the top songs from the 90s. Or play the top songs from the 60s. Any error should work. Another fun one is hearing the top songs from a specific date. Such as, the day you were born. For me, that would Siri, play the top song from March 6th, 1989. Or, even top song from the year you were born. So, play the top song from 1989. Another cool feature is being able to play songs from movies. For example Siri play the song from 50 Shades of Grey. To hear newer songs in a specific genre you can use the command Siri play the top pop songs now. Or play the top rock songs. You can also use Siri to play the top songs from your favorite artist. I love Billy Joel, so I say Play Billy Joel and Siri will offer me up his top hits. Unfortunately, there are limitations. You will need to be an Apple Music subscriber to use these features. At this time, Siri also is incapable of creating playlists Sorry, I can't help you with that, Dan. You will also run into issues when some songs aren't available for streaming. Such as when you look up the John Legend song, Glory, from the hit movie Selma. Sorry, Glory (From the Motion Picture Selma) by Common & John Legend isn't available for streaming. But Apple Music is new and it's bound to get better over Hi, for more tips and tricks like this one be sure to checkout howto.cnet.com.
