Apple Music for Artists expands analytics beta

Apple Music for Artists is looking for more musicians to try out its analytics dashboard. The platform debuted in January with a limited beta test, and now Apple is looking for more performers to test the service. Interested parties can reserve a spot on the Apple Music for Artists website, but the company has not shared how many spots are available or how much longer the beta will last.

The analytics dashboard for Apple Music offers a look at a performer’s catalog across both Apple Music and iTunes. The information covered includes plays, plays from Apple Music radio, song purchases, and album purchases.

Many of the leading streaming audio services have rolled out internal analytics to help artists better understand how their work is being received and how to potentially improve those results.
