How to Open Spotify Links in Apple Music and Vice Versa – MacRumors

Spotify is the biggest music streaming service available, so it’s not uncommon to receive a Spotify link from someone to something they want you to listen to on your iPhone or iPad. If you’re an Apple Music subscriber, however, that link isn’t going to work for you. The opposite of course is also true – if a Spotify subscriber receives an ‌Apple Music‌ link, they’ll have to search for the content manually in the rival service.

Fortunately, there’s a handy new app for ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌ that takes Spotify links and makes them something you can open in ‌Apple Music‌. It also works in the opposite direction for anyone who uses Spotify and often receives links from someone who uses Apple’s streaming service.

It’s called MusicMatch, and it’s a free download on the App Store. So if the above scenario is something that’s irked you or your friends before, go and download the app, and you’ll be able to convert those links into something useful in a cinch. Here’s how it works.

  1. Receive a link to a song, album, or artist from someone.
  2. Copy the Spotify link you’ve received to the clipboard by long pressing it and selecting Copy.
  3. Open MusicMatch.
  4. Tap Open in Apple Music.

MusicMatch also offers a Safari extension that automatically redirects links from Spotify to ‌Apple Music‌, although this option doesn’t currently work in the opposite direction for Spotify users.

That’s all there is to MusicMatch, a simple solution to a common problem experienced by many, if not most, ‌Apple Music‌ and Spotify users. Currently it only supports ‌Apple Music‌ and Spotify, but support for YouTube Music, Tidal, Pandora, and other services is something the developers are working on.

Music Box Cookie Tin is Truly ‘Note-Able’ – Packaging Digest

Isn’t it a wonderful feeling when packaging surprises you in a good way?

My packaging-induced wonder came upon a recent night-time visit to a nearby Aldi’s. As I perused the shelves, there it was: Benton’s “Music Tin with Sugar Cookies”, which captures exactly what it’s about.

It was so unexpected to find such a premium-looking, interactive item at the discount grocer that I was beaming like a kid on Christmas morning. Then I became self-conscious and looked around to see if my fellow shoppers noticed my reaction. If so, they may have thought I’d enjoyed some liquid holiday cheer beforehand.
