Apple has announced that it will discontinue its Voice Plan package for Apple Music starting from November, without providing any reasons for this cancellation. Current customers will still be able to enjoy the service until their billing cycle ends, but after that, they will need to switch to a more expensive package.
Fortunately, this news does not affect users in Thailand as the Apple Music Voice Plan is only available in 17 countries, excluding Thailand.
The Apple Music Voice Plan was introduced in 2021 as the most affordable package option, priced at $4.99 per month for customers in America. However, it comes with certain limitations. It can only be used for listening purposes and does not allow users to create their own playlists. It also does not support Dolby Atmos or Lossless audio, and users can only select songs through Siri.
TLDR: Apple has decided to discontinue its Voice Plan package for Apple Music without providing any explanation. Current customers can continue using the service until their billing cycle ends, but they will need to switch to a more expensive package afterwards. Users in Thailand are not affected as the Voice Plan is not available in the country. The Voice Plan, introduced in 2021, is the most affordable option but has limitations such as no playlist creation, no support for Dolby Atmos or Lossless audio, and reliance on Siri for song selection.
