To get there, Apple partnered with PlayNetwork Inc, which provides in-store music and entertainment to retail stores, restaurants and hotels, to operate Apple Music for Business. Apple itself is building hundreds of playlists for its clients, the report said.
The WSJ report also noted that Apple Music for Business has secured 25 accounts in its six months of operation, which will put Apple Music’s muzak in more than 10,000 store locations once fully implemented.
