But now with all the specifications on the table is when four of the most important music services have come out to talk about Apple Music , one with few, really very few words, one with welcome and one without apparent concern for Apple’s bet. Let’s know the reactions of some competitors of Apple Music to their announcement.

Spotify

The first one to give an opinion before the announcement of Apple Music in the middle of the keynote of WWDC 2015 was Daniel Ek, founder and CEO of Spotify , who while Tim Cook was showing his service to the world, wrote in his Twitter account only two words: “Oh ok”.

After a few minutes he decided to erase the tweet but that time was enough for thousands of his followers to make a capture. But Ek didn’t only refer to Apple Music with those few words, as he also threw himself at Apple by criticizing the decision to launch News.

Rdio

Another of the competitors were more subtle and to some extent friendly, as the managers of Rdio decided to welcome Apple Music with a message that speaks of a musical revolution and the responsibility of belonging to this small group of services.

Pandora

The internet radio service Pandora, which has a very good market share in the United States, also reacted to the launch of Apple Music by the hand of his CFO Mike Herring , who during an interview with CNBC only mentioned that Pandora is a market leader and is sure to remain so even with the arrival of Apple.

Rhapsody

Finally, we have the reactions of Ethan Rudin, CFO of Rhapsody , who refers to Apple’s service as something “surprisingly familiar”, referring to the fact that Cupertino has copied the idea and platform of their service.
