Kent Computing students develop web player for Apple Music

A team of Year in Industry students from the University of Kent have attracted the attention of Apple for their new music service, Musish.

The computer science students, who are on placement in California, realised that Apple does not offer a web player for its music service in the same way that the likes of Spotify does. This led James JarvisRaphaël VigéeFilip Grębowski and Brychan Bennett-Odlum to develop their own open-source web-based player for Apple Music.

Musish uses an Apple Music subscriber’s existing library to provide them with a seamless listening experience across all devices – not just their personal Apple devices but also any device with a web browser.

Since its release only five months ago, almost 200,000 users from almost 200 countries have connected with the service, with dozens of very positive reviews appearing around the world.
