Valve has gone ahead and quietly hidden a link to its Steam Machines webpage from the Steam store itself, a move indicative of the ill-fated project to push a console-like transition for gaming PCs in the living room. The move, noticed by PC Gamer today, doesn’t mean Steam Machines can no longer be purchased. You can still find the live link here, and you can even purchase the recommended Alienware Alpha Steam Machine from Dell if so choose, as well as the Valve-designed SteamOS controller over on Amazon. But the “hardware” tab on Steam now only shows the Steam Controller, the HTC Vive headset, and Valve’s game streaming service Steam Link.
It’s clear Steam Machines are no longer a priority for Valve, which couldn’t overcome the product…
If you have a PlayStation 4, there's a good chance you use it as a video viewer. However, you'll also know that it isn't ideal for that role — you have to hop between apps just to see what shows are worth watching. Sony is aiming to fix that. Ame… Engadget RSS Feed
Apple Music has been updated with a feature that puts all of its music videos and music-related content into one place. The hub, a new Music Videos section in the browse tab, was first previewed as an iOS 11.3 feature back in January. But, interestingly, Apple Music actually added the videos section slightly ahead of […] Read More… iDrop News
Apple must be readying the rollout of final iOS 11.3 version, as the Apple Music app is now showing a dedicated Music Videos section. If that sounds familiar, that’s because Music Videos is supposed to be a new iOS 11.3 feature of Apple’s music subscription service, as long as you’re a paying subscriber.
That’s right, the Music Videos feature isn’t available for free, so if you don’t want to pay for Apple’s music streaming service you’d better go to YouTube to get your music video fix.
In case you are an Apple Music subscriber, then head on to the Browse tab and then the Music Videos section should be nested right underneath Genres. As 9to5Mac points out, the Music Videos feature was never available in any of the iOS 11.3 beta releases, so there was no way of testing it out. Apple, however, decided to quietly release it by updating the Apple Music app, which means the final iOS 11.3 update can’t be too far behind.
On the other hand, it’s not like you couldn’t watch music videos inside the Apple Music app before iOS 11.3. The clips were there for you to discover and enjoy, as long as you were a paying subscriber.
The Music Videos section cleans up the experience, making it even easier to find the music videos you wanted. The section will offer users access to Apple-curated content, including Today’s Video Hits, and the newest music videos available right now. Spotlights on certain artists are also apparently included. The feature should also offer you content based on your existing preferences, which is practically how the Apple Music app works.
As exciting as the feature might be on mobile, the place where it can really shine is the Apple TV.
Apple this morning added a new Music Videos section to its Apple Music streaming service for $9.99 monthly subscribers.
The new section is accessed by way of the Browse panel in iTunes on macOS and iOS 11, and is currently showcasing several music videos that have been available on the service for some time, along with Apple Music exclusives from the likes of Kylie Minogue and Beck. A curated “Today’s Video Hits” playlist and artist spotlight on Taylor Swift are also featured.
Word of new music video content for Apple Music subscribers came via Apple when it outlined many of the upcoming changes in iOS 11.3 in a preview announcement at the beginning of the year.
The company said Apple Music would “soon be the home for music videos,” allowing subscribers to stream all the music videos they want without ads, as well as view and create music video playlists. Users can also expect regularly updated editorial and music video recommendations from Apple, based on the user’s music tastes.
We’re still waiting for the official release of iOS 11.3 to drop. Several beta versions of iOS 11.3 have been made available to developers and public testers since Apple’s preview announcement, but the new Apple Music video category has been introduced separately and is already appearing for a lot of iPhone and iPad users running iOS 11.2.6 and for Mac users with iTunes 12.7 or later installed.
