How to download the new app in macOS Monterey

We are many who wish to obtain the new application from Apple Music on Mac . With the release of macOS Catalina, Apple made the decision to remove iTunes on Mac and released three separate applications as replacements. Although the idea was quite interesting and necessary, the result of Apple Music left a lot to be desired, until now..

The situation is changing and for the better, this is because Apple made the decision to develop the Apple Music app on Mac from scratch and the result is simply great. Although it is still in beta version, it is already possible to test it without any kind of problems.

What's different about the new Apple Music app for Mac?

One of the things that has caused the most complaints from users with iTunes is its confusing and slow interface. Due to the fact that it is a single application for practically everything (media player, iPhone / iPad manager and media library) obviously it is not possible to address the basic and simple things to give a good browsing experience and music streaming..

Despite being a standalone app with a new name, the music app came with an outdated iTunes design. Obviously, this also had a lot of content applied "inside" it, causing it to not feel fluid enough.

Luckily, the macOS Monterey 12.2 update manages to change this. After so long, the guys at Apple made the decision to use AppKit. It is a native interface framework for macOS, in order to develop Apple Music from scratch..

This new app is much more fluid and responsive, according to several reports, they used JET technology to convert web content into the native application. Which should translate into greater fluency.
