iTunes Begins To Offering 90 Second Song Previews


Apple has begun offering 90-second previews of songs in the iTunes Store. Previously capped at 30 seconds, all songs longer than 2 minutes 30 seconds will now have a 90-second preview available. According to Mac Rumors not all songs offer the extended previews yet, but eventually all songs over 2:30 in length should.

The good news is that the extended song previews have started to roll out though some folks have noticed that not all songs offer the same extended previews just yet, but they eventually will. Apple previously stated that labels who didn't agree to the new licensing terms would have its songs removed from the iTunes store so if you suddenly see some music not being available anymore, that could be one of the reasons. Regardless of how it works out for the music labels, this is definitely a win for consumers.
